Let's talk travel!
Last week we shared a list of some handy questions to get the family talking about travel at Thanksgiving.
You might have talked about how awesome a Galapagos Adventure Cruise with the whole family would be or maybe it was planning a romantic trip to Belize, a safari in South Africa with friends or an exciting adventure in Patagonia. Whatever it was, we'd love to hear about your future travel plans and dreams.

What to talk about at Thanksgiving
First off, Happy Thanksgiving! This holiday, before the kids leave the table or the guests turn on the game, start the conversation with something everyone loves to talk about...TRAVEL!
We've put together a list of some handy questions to get the family talking and to find out what you're looking for on your next adventure. Maybe you want to search for tigers in India or take the family on our new Far-Flung Family Adventure in Costa Rica. Either way, we'd love to hear you and your family's thoughts on the matter.
Come back after dinner (and dessert!), share what you've learned by filling out our travel survey and be entered to win a 32GB Ipad Mini 2. And since it's all about giving thanks, for every survey completed we'll make a donation to Doctors Without Borders.

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...
South America is a culturally rich and diverse and geographically varied continent. When traveling to South America it is important to understand that each country, though often recognized for its iconic tourist attractions, is not solely that singular highlight. Each country boasts a vast array of, architectural styles, historical backgrounds, languages (and accents for that matter), rural towns, transportation, crops, landscapes and wildlife. It is easy to dedicate a week to a lifetime in each country in South America and continuously stumble upon new sights, sounds, foods and traditions. I highly recommend, before trying to jump from one well-known place to the next, to take the local transit, attempt a conversation with a local and explore the paths less traveled for a truly unique and enlightening experience.
Though planes are definitely the fastest way to reach most South America travel destinations, they are often times much more expensive and they are...
By invitation of Ethiad Airlines, KAI Associates and our friends in the Arabian Gulf, I'm headed to Ahu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, and to Muscat, Oman. UAE has become a major international air hub with many competing carriers offering free stopover opportunities.
I know what to expect. Skyscrapers, gold and glitz, and fancy air-conditioned malls amidst a modern global culture rooted in ancient tradition and Islamic faith. And I know that Business Class on Ethiad Air 16 hours direct from LAX should be smooth sailing in the air. Not to mention a few overnights in the Emirates Palace in the pinnacle of luxury and Arabian hospitality.
But it begs the question: Will I get beyond the luxe and the hardscape to experience anything resembling ecotourism? After all, Wildland Adventures is rooted in responsible travel that conserves the enviornment and supports the well-being of local people. I...
