There are plenty of exotic food options when you land in Iceland. You can spend hundreds of dollars feasting on shark, puffins and sheep’s head jelly.
But, in my opinion, there’s only one food that every single visitor in Iceland must try.
I'm am so excited to be exploring Portland, Maine this week with my awesome wife Abby.
The agenda includes whale watching, brewery tours, exploring lighthouses and eating everything in sight. This trip will also be the first time I've ever eaten lobster in my entire life. I know. I know. I agree, it's weird.
I'll be sure to write about my trip over the next coming months.

BOCAS DEL TORO, PANAMÁ -- I was lucky enough to experience Bocas del Toro, Panama in one of the best ways that it should be -- drinking, eating and partying on a bachelor party.
I was one of 14 guys that came from all over the United States to celebrate the engagement of my friend Frank in Panama City and then Bocas del Toro. And while it was an incredible experience, the trip was not without its pitfalls.
In an effort to help you avoid our mistakes, here’s everything you need to know about Bocas del Toro:
SANDYS PARISH, BERMUDA -- It was getting dark. My wife, Abby, and I had been driving our scooters around Sandy’s Parish in Bermuda for a few couple hours at this point. She had never driven a scooter before and was learning on the go.
HAVANA, CUBA -- We were returning home from Cuba when it all started to go wrong. What was supposed to be a quick flight from Fort Lauderdale to Baltimore turned into a 48-hour ordeal that involved food poisoning, vomiting, a road trip with strangers and sleeping in an airport lobby.
REYKJAVIK, ICELAND -- I’ve logged well over 50 hours on roads during my three trips to Iceland. But it wasn’t until my most recent trip -- with my buddy Matt -- that I discovered a travel hack that will make exploring Iceland a lot easier.
One of the biggest things I struggle with while traveling is getting outside of my bubble and meeting people.
But when I have -- usually during solo trip -- I meet such incredible people. When I open myself to meeting new people, I always learn more about their country, hear great stories and make a cool connection. I cannot recommend it enough. MEET. NEW. PEOPLE.
It takes a lot to plan a great trip. You have to invest time, energy and effort into finding restaurants, attractions, activities and more. It’s a process I love as much as actually traveling.
Much to my surprise, I’ve found that a lot of people don’t like planning their trips. They don’t know where to start, or what resources to use or how to do it. So, I’ve decided to share my proven, successful step-by-step process for planning a perfect vacation.
