Ahhhh.....V A C A T I O N. Getting away from our crazy hectic everyday lives and letting loose and forgetting about all of our worries and stressors. But for some people, vacation means overeating and not moving around enough, resulting in weight gain. When you return back to your job and normal life, your pants are tight, you lose that "high" vacation feeling within a couple days, and any hopes of being re-charged and reinvigorated start to vanish.

But what if you actually lost weight on a vacation, while still exploring new sights and meeting new people and embracing a healthy lifestyle? And, how about if when you returned to work after your vacation you were in better shape, your endorphins were sky high, making you feel un-stoppable, and that vacation "ahhh" feeling kept going strong weeks into getting back to your normal everyday life? You'd be more creative, more focused and more happier for sure!

Well, that can happen when you take an active vacation and adventure travel.

Active vacations and adventure travel can be for anyone, no matter your fitness level. They can include easy walks, birding, horseback riding, and biking, or be challenging like caving and canyoneering or hiking up to a glorious mountain peak at sunrise. Their are even some more unique vacations such as dog-sledding, polar exploration and sea kayaking with a monk.

Almost anything goes depending on your imagination, budget and time. National Geographic and REI have popular adventure trips they advertise. Sites like adventurefinder.com can connect you with tour and travel companies that host trips to any area of the world you'd like to travel to and/or the type of activity you'd like to do, as well as whether you are a solo traveler, a couple, small group or family. Active vacations can also be woven into historical tours, religious and spiritual excursions, as well as political and social outings.

As a Health and Fitness Coach, I'm excited about my first international group active vacation I'm leading this summer, which is a 9 day trip to Costa Rica where we'll be zip lining through the tree tops of a rainforest, whitewater rafting, hiking and camping on a mountain with several eco-zones, activities on a beach, and visiting coffee and strawberry and fern farms. Future active trips and adventure travels that I'm considering hosting include Machu Pichu, Yellowstone, The Holy Land, Spain, and more!

So why not push yourself out of your comfort zone next time you are planning your vacation and immerse yourself in a whole new outlook on how you travel, meet people and experience the USA and the world! Who knows, you just might find it extremely exhilarating.
