Holiday Get-Aways: Beat the Holiday Blues

Tired of doing the same things over the holiday season? Tired of year after year of wandering from the in-law’s to the cousin’s to the neighbor’s and back home? Roadfly has some ideas that are sure to cure the winter holiday season blahs.

Brisbane, Australia: Paradise on Earth

Home to the infamous Crocodile Hunter, Brisbane is the place to visit if you’re in need of a good time. With an exchange rate of 1.75 to 1 (one US Dollar equals 1.75 Australian Dollars) and some of the friendliest people known to mankind, Brisbane is sure to make you forget all about the 15″ of snow that’s piling up in your driveway.

Sure, airfare is a little pricey (average roundtrip fare from Los Angeles to Brisbane is around $2000 per adult passenger), but once you get to Brisbane, you’ll enjoy an incredible vacation at a bargain rate. Brisbane hotels are clean, comfy, modern and relatively inexpensive. During our last trip to Brisbane, we rented an “apartment” that included an in-unit kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom and bathroom with full laundry for less than $100 USD per night.

Brisbane has beautiful beaches, wonderful shopping (the Queen Street Mall is fabulous), and great food. The people are incredibly accomodating and friendly, and the scenery is like none other. Click over to and book your airfare today. You won’t regret it, and you’ll quickly forget all about the winter season while you’re soaking in the sunlight, swiming in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean and saying “G’day, Mate” to everyone you meet.

New York City, NY: Rockefeller Center, Times Square and New Years Eve

How many New Years Eve’s have you spent sitting in front of the boob tube, watching the ageless Dick Clark count down the world’s most famous New Years Eve celebration? Isn’t it about time you packed your bags and headed off to NYC to participate firsthand in the nation’s grandest New Year’s celebration?

With the recent slump in the travel business, NYC hotels no longer require you to apply for a second mortgage before checking in. Airfare to NYC is also pretty reasonable, provided you book your tickets in advance. Cabs are plentiful and efficient for making your way across the city.

The staff at Roadfly loves Manhattan’s W Hotel. Located on Broadway at 47th, the trendy W pampers its guests with calming colors and decor and all rooms feature “heavenly beds” – pillow topped beds with extra fluffy pillows and luxurious linens. Perfect for a few days sleep after the country’s biggest New Years Eve extravaganza.

Be sure to check out some of the city’s many wonderful restaurants and tourist attractions, and be sure to take a lap or two around the Rockefeller ice skating rink. Manhattan is a wonderful place to visit, especially during the Holiday Season.

Wisconsin Dells, WI: Take the Weekend Off

Wisconsin Dells is normally “the place to be” if you’re spending your summer in the midwest. Most folks don’t realize that Wisconsin Dells is also a great place to visit during the winter months.

Wisconsin Dells is home to a few of the nation’s finest indoor water parks, including giants like the Kalahari Resort and the Great Wolf Lodge. With over 30,000 square feet of indoor water parks at each resort, you and your loved ones are sure to enjoy yourselves, even if the temperature outside dips in to the single digits.

“The Dells” as the locals call it, features some great family restaurants, and if you’re feeling lucky, you could always wander over to the Ho-Chunk casino and suites for a game of Blackjack or perhaps a few pulls of the slot machines.

The best part about visiting the Dells during the off-season is the money you’ll save – expect to stay in a very nice room for well under $100 per night. Meals and entertainment are also very reasonably priced.

Wisconsin Dells is located approximately 60 miles due north of Madison, Wisconsin, so if you’re flying in, it’s best to arrive in Madison and rent a car to drive to Wisconsin Dells. It may not be a tropical paradise, but we’re certain you’ll enjoy yourself regardless of the weather outside.


A Quick Note From Our Founder –

Over the past few years I’ve taken a very special interest in helping people reduce the amount of inflammation in their bodies. Please take a moment to read Thomas DeLauer’s incredible story and how he was able to completely rid his body of dangerous inflammation.

Thank you!

Anti-Inflammatory Reboot

Inflammation is holding us back in so many ways, and no one is really explaining it to us. All we know is that it’s “bad,” but no one wants to tell us about how it’s keeping us from losing weight and how it’s making us feel like garbage. Mainly because the food lobbyists don’t want us to dip into their profits when we find out that inflammation is caused by most of the so-called healthy foods that we are eating now!

IMPORTANT: My results are not typical. As with any weight loss program, your results may vary greatly.

When I was 275lbs and struggling with my weight, the last thing that I thought about was inflammation causing my problems… I had always resorted to the basics… simple calories in vs. calories out to lose weight, BUT that was NOT the case here. There was something bigger at play because I was literally doing everything that I was ‘supposed’ to do.

Meanwhile, my wife was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease that effected her thyroid (hashimoto’s) and later, Lyme disease. It was the serendipitous timing of this that made me realize that inflammation might be playing a larger role then I had thought. I’m sure many of you have heard of these diseases, and the scary thing is that they can be affecting you and you might not even know it!

To make a very long story short, I began learning about inflammation, using my resources within the healthcare industry to dive into some heavy research on how inflammation works and how it could be holding my wife and I (and others) from living the lives that we wanted to live. Like so many others, it’s easy to not even realize you’re being held back.

I found that inflammation can cause all kinds of issues in the digestive tract making it so that you’re not absorbing nutrients. This was a HUGE step, because I WAS eating healthy, but I couldn’t lose weight at all! So when I realized that there were specific “health foods” that I was eating that were causing this to happen, it all made sense….

If you’re not absorbing nutrients, then you body goes into starvation mode and that means that you will store fat! It’s a simple survival mechanism! This was the code that needed to be cracked! I needed to find a way to reduce the activity of the COX-1 enzyme and the production of prostaglandins (a fancy way of saying ‘how inflammation is caused”)

But the difficulty was finding a way to rid my body of the inflammation so that I could begin absorbing nutrients again. And back then, this was a long drawn out process, simply because the science wasn’t really there at the time. Most of us don’t really have the time or the energy to devote to experimenting with different foods to find what works for them.

Well, I did reduce my inflammation, and I was able to get back on track and ultimately become on author on this very topic, but it took a lot of time.

So over the past six months, using my experiences and my research I have developed a way to reduce inflammation within the body and to help the body absorb nutrients again, all with a WHOLE FOODS approach. As someone that has been in the healthcare industry before, I wanted to make sure this was a down-to-earth way to reduce inflammation.

Anyhow, it has been awesome to see how many people have been having success and not just reducing inflammation, but truly losing weight and kick starting their new lives feeling utterly amazing!

I want to invite you to take a look at the full protocol and the actual program and steps that you need to take right here

Just seeing some of the pain being lifted from people and seeing them realize what had been causing them so much grief before…
