There is nothing better than snuggling up next to a warm fire on a cold winter night with those you love and watching a good movie.  If you are like me, you can’t get enough of outdoor adventure movies.  Nothing gets me more excited about planning my next trip than watching a great adventure.  If you are looking for the top outdoor adventure movies to watch with your family and friends, then you have come to the right place.  In this article, I am going to review some of the top adventure documentaries on my all-time list.

Yellowstone and Grand Teton Visitor Guide

I have been to exactly half of the 46 National Parks in the continental United States, with plans to visit the remainder of the parks here and outside the 48 continental states.  And I have plans to write about each and every one of those parks so that I can share with you my experiences and any tips I might have collected along the way.

Travel Planning Advice – Part 2

If you were following along with your own trip in mind, you should have a compiled list of all of the things your group would like to see, ranked in order of what your group would like to see the most, and a map with all of these places laid out on it.

There are few cities in Europe, if not the world, that seems as magical as the city of Barcelona in Spain.  Rumored to have been established over 400 years ago by none other than Hercules, Barcelona has been home to its fair share of larger-than-life figures throughout its history.  Arguably one of the city’s most famous residents in its history was Antoni Gaudí, whose architecture can be found throughout the city and is world-renown for its unique style and beauty.  Arguably the most famous of his buildings is the infamous Sagrada Familia church, which has the distinction of being under construction for longer than it took to build the Great Pyramids of Giza.  In fact, the church is still under construction to this day.
