    How to Train for Adventure Travel Vacations

    Kit interviews Marcus Shapiro from Fit For Trips on this important episode on how to train both your body and mind for your next big adventure.  
    Proper training for your adventurecan determine whether you return home exhilarated and empowered, or miserable and in pain, or even injured. While it’s possible to speed up your training calendar, aim to ease in to building your body strength gradually so that you don’t inadvertently tweak your movements to accommodate a sudden new load.

    How to Plan a Walking Holiday

    How to Plan a Walking Holiday

    A walking holiday is one where you walk, usually from one village to another via beautiful countryside, have lodging at the end of the day, often you have luggage transfer so you don't have to backpack and thus just carry a daypack.  In short, a walking holiday allows you to truly see the destination at a slow pace so that you can really understand the people and culture you encounter on your travels.  It's a wonderful way to explore and have an authentic adventure!
