Travel doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Between online travel search engines, Twitter fare deals and frequent flier strategies, there are tons of ways to find and book a cheap flight. Here are a few tips:
10 Extreme Travel Adventures to Add to Your Bucket List:
In the spirit of the hugely popular book “1000 Places To See Before You Die,” I’d like to offer up a few more adrenaline-soaked activities to add to your travel to-do list. These activities are all experiential, aspirational and, most importantly, extreme!
Prostitution. Drug Smuggling. Human guinea pig testing for a sketchy pharmaceutical company. Surely there are better ways to fund your travel adventures! Here are a few fun, family friendly (and above all – legal) options to make money while you’re on the road.
White sandy beaches, turquoise waters and an unlimited supply of rum rich Piña Coladas….Many of us dream of such picture perfect postcard vacations but the fiscal reality of actually affording such a trip can bust our budget bubble and bring us back down to earth.
When it comes to foodie cities, Portland Maine may not be the first place that comes to mind. New York, New Orleans, San Francisco for sure, but, as I recently discovered while filming new episodes of Outside Today, the tiny seacoast town of Portland is a surprising culinary contender.
Ethan and I are at it again! We’re on location in beautiful Portland Maine, shooting another 14 episodes of Outside Today, the flagship morning show on Outside Television. This new winter season promises a ton of fun segments: ski tips, travel advice and in-depth profiles from some of the world’s top athletes. We’ll chat with senior editors of Outside Magazine about everything from the latest tech gear, to rockered skis, fashionable winter wear to the best outdoor documentary films of all time.
Burning Man. How does one describe this week long arts/hardcore party event held every year in Nevada’s Black Rock City desert? Truly, it cannot be contained or explained by words and pictures alone. It’s truly something you have to experience to understand…or believe. For one week, some 50,000 costume-clad visitors travel from all over the world to celebrate humanity, creativity, music, nudity, charity and chemically induced happiness celebrated to the beat of throbbing techno. This inhabitable desert wasteland devoid of all animal and plant life, is transformed into Nevada’s third largest city. It has it’s own post office, medical center, coffee shop and, in this gift-based economy, the neon city functions like a bizarro, Mad Max version of the real world.

So Burning Man is only a little over a week away…and I’m getting excited! I’m in scramble mode, trying to pack all the gear necessary for what will be my very first Burn. I’ve got the desert goggles, I’ve got the boots, I’ve got the costumes, the camel back, the hat, the sunscreen, the tent, the sleeping bag, the coolers, the chairs, all my food, the body and bike lights (so I don’t get run over by hippies high on hallucinogens), wet wipes, the toilet paper, the Cliff pars, the hand sanitizer and of course….an open mind. But is it enough? Will I make it through a week of camping in the harsh, inhabitable desert? Help! Holler with anymore advice if you have any….this ain’t no trip to Europe.
