A Seamless, Comprehensive Adventure to the End of the World

A Seamless, Comprehensive Adventure to the End of the World
This Wild couple came to us after having already purchased their tickets to Chile and Argentina. They had an idea of the places that they wanted to see and asked us to put it all together for them as a single, seamless, comprehensive adventure. Read on to hear their thoughts on El Calafate and Ushuaia in Patagonia as well as Buenos Aires, Uruguay and Easter Island.   “Friends used you in the past and when we had some thoughts about this potential trip and where to go and you nicely strung our destinations of interest together with excursions and accommodations. Easter Island was unique and all the Argentina venues were excellent and different. We had 4 main guides --Pilar in El Calafate, Jessica in Ushuaia, Ana in Buenos Aires and Lauda in Colonia, Uruguay. All were excellent, professional and well informed. Every place was so different and provided excellent opportunities to meet...

The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures

The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures
Southeast Asia is filled with breathtaking views, ancient temples and some of the friendliest people in the world. There are many great Southeast Asia adventures to be had in this culturally diverse area, so to maximize your enjoyment of these activities I’ve prepared a comprehensive packing list to help you prepare for this amazing experience. Travel skirts are a great way to stay comfortable and keep cool in the heat of the day; however, you need to be cautious with the length as many temples and other sites will not permit you to enter if your skirt is too short. Exofficio’s Go-To Stripe Skirt is quick drying, moisture wicking and even includes a hidden zippered pocket for your cash. This skirt is also modest in length, allowing you to wear it anywhere. I pair my skirt with the Techspressa Support Tank, which is also quick drying and has a built-in...

This Sombrero is too sexy for me!

This Sombrero is too sexy for me!
This is the third Seattle Sombrero I have owned… I lost the first two (orange and red) over the years and now it is my new blue sombrero that travels with me everywhere I go…. From my short bike rides to the grocery store to my multiday trips around Costa Rica, this sombrero and I are inseparable. Here in Costa Rica we have a long rainy season, even though it rains for only one hour or two a day, this rainy weather can extend from May to November. This classic Outdoor Research Seattle Sombrero is a must have to protect yourself from light rain to serious tropical downpours, there is no way your head won’t stay dry with this Sea Somb!. The hat comes in 4 sizes and 10 colors… I love all the fun color combinations Outdoor Research offers. Besides being waterproof, it is breathable and features brushed tricot interior...

I want to talk about my underwear

I want to talk about my underwear
This gear review has been a long time coming, for the past 4 years I've trusted ExOfficio GIVE-N-GO boxer briefs on every adventure I've been on. It honestly doesn't matter what type of adventure it is, I always make sure to pack my GIVE-N-GO boxer briefs. From camel rides in the Sahara to sleeping in snow dens in the backcountry of Montana, I know I've got a solid pair of underwear that will keep me dry and warm when it matters. More importantly, for the last half dozen international trips I have only packed 2-3 pairs of ExOfficio boxers for my entire trip. The beauty of these boxers is they are extremely quick drying, I am able to wash them at night in the shower and have a fresh pair of boxers in the morning. Plus, they are odor resistant with Aegis® Microbe Shield™ to eliminate odor-causing bacteria in fabric so I stay extra fresh on those...

THE TRIFECTA EFFECT: Tank, Fleece and Shell for your next Trek

THE TRIFECTA EFFECT: Tank, Fleece and Shell for your next Trek
While hiking the Inka Trail to Machu Picchu, part of what makes the experience so exceptional is the vast array of microclimates you pass between. Though absolutely incredible, it can present its self as a challenge when creating a packing list. This past August when I was hiking the Inka Trail, I couldn’t have been more thankful for the three lightweight layers I ended up living in (and out of) while hiking. Here are three excellent choices for the perfect trifecta of hiking layering for your upcoming trek from ExOfficio! LAYER ONE: The quick drying and wicking GO-TO TANK for when the sun (much closer at such high elevations) beats down overhead. The wicking and quick dry is critical because, though you will be feeling quite hot while on the move, the wind will give you unwelcomed chills when you stop if you are wet with sweat.  LAYER TWO: The lightweight...
