Everything You Need to Know About a Campervan Roadtrip in Iceland

I find campervans charming. Being totally free to wander a place without worrying about hotel reservations makes the campervan an ideal way to explore Iceland. The Hubs and I rented a double-decker in New Zealand, enjoying the same freedom. All the romance of having your bed on wheels doesn’t mean there’s no work. I went to Iceland for…

White Water Rafting in Cairns, Australia

Cairns is nothing if not an adventure sport destination. I love adventure travel so I was more than ready to white water raft for my first time ever back in February. If you have no aversion to looking like a deranged Teletubby for an adventure sport, then don a GoPro-mounted helmet and go white water rafting….

Cairns Zoom & Wildlife Dome, Australia

Get High at Cairns Zoom & Wildlife Dome

If you want to work off the excess of the previous night’s feeding and drinking frenzy in Cairns, here’s a chance for some good old fashioned cardio. Cairns Zoom is a zip line that could double as the set of America Ninja Warrior. Don’t even try to not look like an ape on this 65-foot vertical obstacle course.
