When you’re training for the Ironman World Championships you can’t be tethered to earbuds while Eye of the Tiger pumps through your veins. Get tangled up in those wires, and you’re one trip away from the disabled list. Designer Sang Hoon Lee has your triathlon career covered with his Apple Hairband Headphone Concept. The minimalist design does away with traditional wires and buttons, letting you turn up the volume with just a touch to the right earphone and turning it down by touching the left. Don’t be surprised if your right ear gets a little sore while listening to Kanye’s “Stronger.”
Since you’re more of the blaze your own trail type (Lewis & Clark are distant relatives), you’re not likely to take a cruise or sign up for a tour. For the rare instance that you keep your explorer hat packed and want to relax a bit, then a Luxury Train Excursion out of Hotel Du Vin York ($1,700) will suit you nicely. Hop on board the Northern Belle express train for the best in fine dining and sight seeing. The first night you’re treated to an amazing dinner before you’re guided to your room for the night. The next day includes breakfast, brunch and a full four-course dinner. Between meals the train will stop for specific sights and landmarks that you can visit if you’re not too bloated from feasting all day.
