Most people live their lives in big cities, chained to jobs, mortgages, and motor vehicles. It’s a convenient life, but it has nothing to do with what nature evolved the human animal to enjoy. We should be spending 90 percent of our time in nature, but modern life prevents that.
The consequences of our loss of interaction with nature are severe. Many people feel depressed in big cities, wishing they were somewhere else, but they don’t know why. We spend most of our time in front of screens, in artificial environments, and under constant stress which makes us feel disconnected from our ancient roots.
Our biology is the same as it always was, but in the last 100 years, our surroundings have been transformed. As such, we feel a profound sense of loss and disconnect from the natural world. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We can rediscover our joy of being outdoors by making some simple changes in our lifestyle and mindset. Here’s what you should be doing.read more

Raise your hand if you crave adventure! You won’t need to lug gear or cook your own food either – not on a cruise adventure.
That’s right. Cruises are offering ever more adventurous experiences, especially in destinations like Alaska. Add a zip line, bike, hike or fishing excursion to your activity list. At select ports, you can fish on a shore excursion and have your Princess Cruise’s chef serve your catch to your family at dinner. Exactly the way you like it.
There are more cabins for solo travelers too. That’s good news for gal getaways as well as for multigenerational groups with a grandparent in tow. My experience on ships is it’s easy to connect with other travelers. Whether I sit at the bar, request to have dinner at a larger table, or join active shore excursions, other passengers are welcoming.read more
When determining the speed of the wake boat for wakeboarding, most people think that the bigger the wake, and the faster the boat the better, but there’s much more. Finding the “sweet spot” for your wake boat’s speed isn’t only to ensure the satisfaction of the wakeboarder, but it’s also about the safety.
Even though you’re surrounded by water, accidents are ineradicable. Especially when you’re new and try to eyeball the speed, things could get ugly fast. It’s because falling on the water while you’re wakeboarding isn’t the same as falling into still water.
When you are wakeboarding, the wave created by your boat is called a “wake,” which has a density of over 800 times more than still water. Hence, crashing onto a wake will definitely hurt a lot more than just falling into the water. That’s why knowing the ideal speed for your wakeboarding is essential.read more
Getting out in nature is something everyone can enjoy in the right conditions, but not all camping trips are going to provide a satisfying experience. Unless you’ve prepared for a trip that’s suited for you, you’re not going to get a whole lot of enjoyment out of it. You need to make sure that when you’re camping, all of your needs are being taken care of.
Sure, some might argue that camping is all about roughing it – but it doesn’t have to be. You can spend your time in the woods living in luxury if you want to, so long as you can pack it and bring it with you. Ultimately, the experience you have comes down to how you prepare for it.read more
It’s something people have strong opinions on – should you wear activewear casually, in public. Should you wear lycra onto a plane? Personally, I’m a fan.
Activewear is the best travel wardrobe ever created, and I’m not ashamed to say it; leggings and a sports bra are the perfect clothes to travel in. It’s called athleisure, and while Paris your gym clothes might spark reactions from certain cliques, I probably think the same of women wearing stilettos to explore as they do of me (though kudos to their pain threshold – seriously!!).
Active wear is built to be comfy, easy to wash, odor resistant, and means you can pack less. Fabrics can take a beating while still looking fresh, and wearing it is practical, versatile and effortless. So when I’m asked ‘should you wear active wear while traveling?’ my response is a resouding ‘Hell Yes!’.read more

Since the pandemic, the way people vacation has changed. While humans have always gravitated towards outdoor spaces, physical distancing and lockdowns have made us appreciate our natural surroundings more than ever before. And now the feeling is, why would you only spend the day immersed in nature, when you can also spend the night?!
RVs have become a hugely popular way to travel since the pandemic, because they allow you to sleep in your destination, and spend time in interesting and exotic places overnight. And beaches specifically can be a great place to park, offering a free ocean view, falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing ashore, and underneath a million stars. Below are some of the benefits of RV camping on the beach.read more
