Travel ideas for mancations, guys weekends, and romantic getaways
  • For those of you who have dreamed of one day attending the Baja 1000, I've got an alternative closer to home. The Mint 400, also known as The Great American Off-Road Race might not be as well known as the Baja 500 and Baja 1,000 but it is an awesome experience and opportunity to meet your favorite drivers, manufacturers, and be a part of one of the greatest off-road races in the world. 

  • The coronavirus has wreaked havoc—not just on our personal lives—but also on sports, entertainment, and music industries to name but a few. One huge reshuffle is the postponing of Euro 2020, a massive European soccer tournament that is almost as big as the World Cup, by one year to Euro 2021. Don't worry though, while the delay may be frustrating to fans - it's going to be an awesome celebration we can all look forward to next year!

  • Italy and Germany come out at the top of the list when thinking about an ultimate mancation driving experience. However, the Swiss have some great roads and a fantastic heritage and passion for driving too. In fact, there's no better auto show in the world than the Geneva Auto Show, nor are there more beautiful roads found anywhere in the world. Let's take a look at what you can experience on a Swiss Alps ultimate driving experience.

  • Tucson, Arizona is one of the hidden gems for a guys trip. It’s a perfect distance for road trips from Phoenix and while a bit farther from San Diego and Los Angeles, it’s an easy drive for guys looking for golf, history, culture, and of course great Mexican Food!

  • Air travel can be stressful, even for the most experienced flyers. Unfortunately, airlines seem dedicated to creating the most convoluted systems to manage the millions of passengers that fly each year and most are left scratching their heads wondering why a few lucky ones seem to remain cool, calm, and relaxed. The following travel hacks will equip you with all the necessary information in case your flight is canceled, how you can refresh at the airport, and so much more information.

  • Expedition voyages are one of the fastest-growing segments of the luxury cruise market. While once this was synonymous with Arctic and Antarctic cruises, I'm thrilled that new players are opening new markets. While some may not see the Great Lakes as being glamourous compared to cruising past penguins and thousand-year-old chunks of ice, the Great Lakes offers a unique and relatively unexplored part of our own country that are also are central to the science and history of our global climate history. 

  • Lafayette, Lousiana is a different sort of part of this great country. While it's "south"... it's not entirely "The South". It marches to a different drummer with unapologetically male food and rugged adventure ranging from airboat tours through the swamp to exploring the cultural heritage of the Cajun people and of course enjoying some delicious Cajun food ranging from boudin to crawfish and cracklins!

  • If you’re a best man, a European stag do is the greatest way to give the groom-to-be the send off he deserves, earn yourself some mega brownie points and have the time of your life while you’re doing it!

  • The concept of "World Expos" is a tradition dating back hundreds of years and are a unique cultural celebration of technology, arts, ideas, and a glimpse of the future. They are also as exhausting as they are thrilling and so when I think forward to this October when Dubai opens Expo 2020 I'm sure this will be even more over the top than others that have preceded it. The United Arab Emirates is a country that seemingly only understands outrageous excess and flamboyant displays of superiority and this I'm sure won't be any different. That's why we're excited to share some tips and advice for how guys can survive this as the ultimate mancation idea this year.

  • If you’re looking to take the ultimate underwater adventure, add Bonaire to your list of possible locations. Located in the southern Caribbean, Bonaire is a small island known for its nature preservation. Conserving the environment on the island and the seas surrounding the island is something that residents take seriously. Bonaire’s conservation acts will allow visitors and tourists to enjoy the island’s marine life for years to come.

  • It's the middle of winter and you probably have some friends who headed south to avoid the ice and snow up north. For retired guys and those who are self-employed and can work remotely, the idea of becoming a snowbird is a pretty attractive dream. While new RV's and motorhomes can be an exciting purchase, getting one that is slightly used can be a great option for those looking to save a bit of money. Just like with a car - the moment you drive it off the lot your purchase begins to depreciate. Here's what you need to know to make that used motorhome purchase a smart one!

  • Bed and Breakfasts can be an excellent alternative to hotels when you want a more intimate experience or a room closer to the action than can be supported by a traditional hotel. That's exactly what Amsterdam's Curry Mansion Inn delivers for its guests in Key West, Florida. The property is only a few steps from the action on Duval Street and a quick walk to Mallory Square to the north. Plus there's a full breakfast each morning and an evening cocktail reception that even features locally distilled spirits!

  • Getting injured on vacation is never on the agenda, but it’s important to know what to do in case you need medical attention while traveling. Here’s what you need to know in case of emergencies when you’re far away from home.

  • At this point, I've become a pretty savvy traveler, some months spending more time on the road than in my own house. However, it's always a good idea to take a step back and put together a list of what you need to pack to travel smart this year. There are so many things that you COULD take that sometimes it becomes confusing or worse... you overpack and get a costly overweight surcharge at the airport. That sucks, so let's take a look at the critical gear you need to pack!

  • There are European vacations and then there are ones that include a visit to Dracula's Castle as well as the one that was used in Bram Stoker's Dracula, while touring through Romanian and Bulgarian villages, enjoying local food, and learning about customs from this unique culture that dates back thousands of years.

  • Seeing the Northern Lights is a bucket list item for many guys and that includes myself. While I've seen my shares of photos and videos, the time I saw these lights was transformational. It is pure magic. Unfortunately, they can be incredibly elusive. I was privileged to see them in North Dakota but even if you travel to areas above the Arctic Circle, there's no guarantee on any given day. However, the more time you spend, the higher you get, and the farther north you go the more likely you are to see them. That's what this balloon tour over Sweedish Lapland is all about.

  • Years ago parking at the airport was easy - use what's provided onsite. Then came wave after wave of off-site parking options and thankfully this competition helped reduce prices and add new services such as car washes and oil changes. Now comes a new company promising to help sort through a sometimes bewildering number of options with their app so you can find the best location when dropping your car off on a trip. Plus, they can even help you find a rental on the other end!

  • We were on hand tonight for Viking's unveiling of their latest product - Viking Expeditions. With their incredible success with taking over the river and small-ship ocean cruise market, Viking Expedition is poised to have the same disruptive impact. Most importantly, the positioning is clearly a move away from traditional expedition offerings where the experience is secondary to the destination, Viking promises to bring a similar experience that we love from the river and ocean product to expeditions as well - including features such as large comfortable bathrooms as well as accessibility and comfort. 

  • Australian Football came about when Tom Wills, one of the founders, encouraged the winter game of football as a way to keep cricketers fit when out of season. Today it has evolved into one of the hottest sports on the planet. Even though I've never had the chance to attend a game in person, the videos excite me for the opportunity 

  • Boston is a city that has it all - world-class education systems, fantastic sports team, a ridiculously rich history, and lots of beer! Whether you're a guy looking for top-notch clam chowder, itching to take in a game at the country's oldest and most beloved ballpark, or wanting to experience some of the country's most epic historical landmarks, Bostin is a city for every kind of guy. It also happens to be an excellent city for a father and son bonding trip. There is plenty to do in Beantown that is kid-friendly that any man would also thoroughly enjoy.
