A Vacation From Your Vacation
After dancing in the conga line at Carnivale, running with the bulls in Pamploma and BASE jumping from the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, you’re going to need a little vacation from your other vacations. That’s why you need to check out Laucala Island. A part of Fiji, it’s exactly what you’re looking for in extreme relaxation, and it isn’t your typical island vacation resort. There are no cruises coming to this island dumping families with disposable cameras, fanny packs and screaming children. The word buffet doesn’t exist and nobody is going to take a staged picture with Flipper here. Laucla Island is private, beautiful and soothing with its pristine beaches and majestic jungle. This remote, 3,500-acre piece of paradise includes 25 individually designed villas.
The indoor/outdoor living spaces include private outdoor showers, a pool and comfortable high-end furniture. If you’re starving for some good food after coming from a Safari, no problem. Laucala has delicious eating options that include the Plantation House Restaurant (they get all their ingredients from livestock and gardens throughout the island) and the Seagrass Restaurant which serves fine Asian cuisine. If you get a sudden impulse to be a tad active, there’s plenty horseback riding, sport fishing and yachting to be had. But we know that if you’re paying a visit to this island after any of your other adventures chances are that the Spa, bar and pool will be your preferred activities during your stay. Chin chin.

Getting Around Your New Island
The ink is barely dry on the deed to your private island, and even though your home and waterslide park haven’t been built yet, you’re itching to get out there and explore. The only problem? Your team of builders haven’t cleared the swamps yet. But don’t fret! The Argo 8×8 750HDi Amphibious Vehicle can get you wherever you need to go. These completely amphibious 6 or 8 wheel-drive badboys (depending on the model) can power through mud, across lakes and ponds, even over deep snow with an entire family of six (sure, your harem counts as family). Enjoy even torque to all eight tires thanks to Argo’s innovative triple differential ADRMIRAL steering transmission. What’s that mean to you? A smooth ride all around the island, and an ontime arrival to the sunset pigroast with the ladies. You always knew you liked amphibians.
Save Your Breath
After years of water sports, and a skinny-dipping tradition with the girl’s water polo team in high school, you’ve developed the ability to hold your breath underwater for obscene amounts of time. Now you can let it out. Whether you’re training for your next Tri or just enjoying the sea life around your private island, the Powerbreather will make your water activities almost effortless. The revolutionary snorkel takes fresh air from the top valve behind your head and exhales it from the mouth valve, allowing you to keep your face underwater at all times. These valves work in concert to ensure that no spent air remains and no water enters the snorkel even while descending. The elastic apparatus stays in place when you turn your head, freeing you up to focus on your stroke and the exotic fauna growing on your reef.
