The sport of adventure travel

For those of you who follow along with us on social media, you’ll have seen that 2017 has been a busy year for the team around the world. We are travelling a LOT lately, and with those experiences come a lot of adventures. If adventure travel was “officially” a sport, I like to think I would be a pro athlete. Over the years, I have been lucky to learn a lot of lessons. The most important one that I can offer is to be prepared for whatever may come your way, and so I decided to share some of my best ways to be prepared when travelling the cities of this big beautiful world. 

Preparing for travel involves a significant amount of planning. Not only do you need to plan the easy things like Instagramable outfits, but it is important to think about what you’ll need while you roam the cities of the world. I know that on our #VisitMexico adventures, we participated in a lot of tours. While it was still the spring in Mexico, the heat and sun were something to keep top of mind. While walking the streets, monuments and areas of the city, I made sure to pack the essentials in my trusted TOMS backpack. 

I wasn’t about to take just any sunscreen with me. I knew that I needed the best, so I packed the NEW Coppertone Sport® Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 to ensure that I was well protected. As the most trusted brand I know, Coppertone can usually be found in every piece of luggage I pack, no matter what the destination is around the world. Because as I said, being prepared means thinking about those unexpected needs, such as taking care of my skin. You’d be shocked how quickly you can burn in the hotter climates of the world when it’s been a long Canadian winter! I know that after a few months of layering up to fight the winter weather, my skin is most apt to go red when travelling down south. And in my opinion, that’s one of the quickest ways that a trip can get ruined from the get-go. This time around, I wasn’t taking any chances while I explored a new city full of new adventures!


The newly formulated Coppertone Sport line is designed to do more for your skin, while providing the same trusted protection from the sun. But the Sport name doesn’t mean it’s only for athletes. Walking 15-20 thousand steps a day exploring a new city can work up quite a sweat! Coppertone Sport is lightweight and offers a breathable feel. Because we all know that there is nothing worse than that sticky synthetic feeling when applying sunscreen. It stays on strong when you sweat, so you can concentrate on enjoying the sun. Hypoallergenic with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, it also smells really good. Is it weird that I don’t like weird smelling sunscreen? Could just be me, but it’s a factor when I choose products while travelling!

The new Coppertone Sport Lotion bottle was developed with a new easy-grip feature, which alongside the no-residue formula, made re-applying easier than ever. Plus, it really helped me to keep my skin hydrated the entire time I was exploring castles and museums.
