Plan your next adventure with a brand that knows the great outdoors, REI. The brand just recently launched its first group of under-35 travel itineraries and each is a jam-packed adventure with loads of opportunities to explore. Designed for millennials only, the itineraries take you across North and South America, Europe and Asia.
The new itineraries, as compared to REI’s others, have more flexibility and freedom as to the activities included and are designed for those on a budget, who might prefer more “cost-conscious” accommodations.
The itineraries include trips to Colombia, Peru, Joshua Tree, the Smoky Mountains, Sonoran Desert, Whistler, Amalfi Coast, Greek Isles and Vietnam. The trips range in length from three to nine days and itineraries begin at $800 for the three-day Great Smoky Mountains — Hops, Hikes & Rafting itinerary.
“Our team has taken great care to design highly active itineraries with the right balance of down time, and most importantly that facilitate a community for younger travelers to travel deeply and responsibly with their peers,” said Justin Wood, senior manager of adventure travel, REI.
“For example, on our nine-day Colombia trip, guests will feel like archeologists by trekking with a private chef and discovering a lost city older than Machu Picchu and with far less visitors. We bike Medellin, hike in the world’s highest coastal mountain range, meet tribal leaders and enjoy some well-deserved downtime at the photo famous Tayrona National Park.”
It doesn’t matter which bottles you use for transporting liquids when you travel, just so long as they meet Transportation Security Administration regulations, right? Wrong. Not all travel-sized liquid containers are the same. For example, cheap plastic bottles may explode in flight, leaving you with stained and damaged clothes and a mess to clean up. Rather than scrimping on below-par bottles for your carry-on liquids, invest a bit of extra money in bottles you’ll actually look forward to using and that won’t require laborious attempts at cleaning out every last drop of your product.

Beer lovers rejoice! Now you can take your craft beer on the road without worrying about lukewarm, less-than-cold brew.

If you like super-slim beer cans and novelty drinks, it likely won't fit.
