Hello friends! Thanks for stopping by. I'm John. Great to meet you. Where do you want to go today?
Europe and the Med on a cruise? Snorkeling in the Caribbean?
Exploring Mayan culture, climbing ruins and swimming in cenotes in Mexico's Yucatan? It all sounds great. I've loved these memorable experiences and more. I've been on more than 100 cruises and to more than 50 countries. I'm constantly seeking out new fun as well as revisiting some of my favorite adventures and special destinations.
I like to write about adventures and fitness and explore ways to incorporate both into travel. There is a natural connection between fitness and travel. At In The Loop Travel, our philosophy is to travel fit, travel happy and travel often. Especially as we head into what I see as the prime of our lives.
Move it or lose it. Time won't slow down, so you have to make the most of it while you can.
I'm always looking for new challenges and adventures, and I'm here to help you find your groove, too.
I show you how to save money, find off-the-beaten-track tours, running routes, hiking paths, snorkeling spots and much more. I also like to share workout tips and tricks for how to keep active while you travel.
I love cruising and am working to redefine the traditional trip on a ship. Sure, I love the voyages for the food, craft beer and onboard entertainment, but I also seek to break away from the masses and find fun through little-explored active independent adventures, connecting with residents in the destinations I visit. These people are the real experts and hook me up with the best sights and activities to enjoy.
I'm ranked among the Top 100 bloggers on the Rise Top 1,000 Travel Blog list and have published thousands of articles on cruising and travel in major print and online publications. I also produce a regular series of engaging videos, vlogs and ship and destination tours on our fast-growing YouTube channel that have been viewed by millions with the aim to help you travel better and get the most out of every trip.
