There is nothing more exciting than planning for a trip. Travel is something that some people have to do to feel whole and happy in their lives, and if you can combine your travel plans with an adventure, you get the best of both worlds: fitness and fun all wrapped up together. Hiking, walking and vacations that involve sports and trekking are, however, a test of endurance. You have to be able to go the distance and if you don’t prepare properly, you’re not going to have the best time of it.

Norwegian Cruise Line invited me on a seven-day cruise of the Hawaiian Islands and it changed my view of this state in a profound way that I didn't expect. While we had visited Hawaii a month earlier and had a great experience - I had no real understanding for the diversity of terrain, culture, and opportunities for adventure that would await us on this cruise. With more than 100 hours in port and no scheduled sea days, this was a profoundly different cruise experience - but one that anyone looking to truly experience Hawaii must try.

We are all familiar with country clubs and yacht clubs ... people purchase property and memberships there because they are passionate about a sport such as golf or sailing. However, there's way more options than just those two hobbies. Over the past few months I've had the chance to check out a few different examples of this including fly-in resorts just for pilots, country clubs for sports car fans, and then of course there's buying your very own slice of heaven to go fishing or hunting on. Whatever your passion, there's probably an option out there that's perfect for you!

While Scotland and the British Isles might seem to be the prime destination for a great round of golf in Europe ... Spain is a top destination that you won't want to miss. With sun soaked coastlines, fantastic wine and food, and a price that is more affordable than other parts of Europe, Spain might just be perfect for your next lads holiday or guys golf getaway!

New Orleans is one of my favorite cities to visit since it is fabulously unique and authentically weird. It's not that moder hipster weird ... it's that, "holy cow, this shouldn't work but it does" weird. It's also one of the most spooky cities to visit - any time of year. From voodoo to vampires, the supernatural is just part of life here and it's a place that people of all walks of life can enjoy if they are ready to just open their mind a bit. Here are some of my favorite weird and spooky places to visit in New Orleans.
