Looking for a great adventure? Here’s a look at seven amazing adventures from some of the world’s leading adventure travel operators. They aren’t all heart-pounding trips (though some are) but many present a physical challenge, a cultural clash or simply an eye-opening experience. In the end, they will stretch your muscles, open your mind and get you well out of your comfort zone (all prices are based on double occupancy). Do you really want to experience Africa?
Much of the United States has been incredibly cold for the past few weeks, leading many to wonder how they can face at least two more months of this freeze and thaw existence. Well, the sage advice is to get out of town now. Here are five intimate places in the Caribbean that can be guaranteed to pour on the heat in a setting of tropical beauty and dedicated pampering. All of them weathered hurricane season, so it’s time to fire up the Gulfstream and go.
Where are the most discerning adventure travelers going in 2018? You know who I mean, the ones who see the world as their oyster, who always fly private, who only travel with friends or family on bespoke trips. Those for whom price is not an object, because it’s the trip, not the tab, which matters. Who better to ask than Cari Gray, founder of Gray & Co, the company named the Best Tour Operator in the World in 2016 in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
