Editor’s Note: We know COVID-19 is continuing to impact your travel plans. Should you travel now, be sure to familiarize yourself with the CDC’s latest guidance on domestic and international travel as well as local requirements, protocols, and restrictions for both your destination upon your arrival and your home city upon your return. Be safe out there.Have you ever wondered what you could get for $160,000? Maybe 10 years ago, you could have said a house, but these days, probably just a partial down payment. But what else? A really fancy car, paying off student loans, or credit card debt? Yes, those are all the realistic answers. But what about something fantastic and impractical, like a plane ticket? And no, not multiple plane tickets. Just a single one. The total cost comes out to be exactly $159,950, so with a bit of spare change to go to the movies.

The luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent is offering 48 passengers the opportunity to spend 24 days seeing some of the most magnificent wildlife in different countries worldwide. The trip kicks off in Seattle and then journeys through Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Madagascar, Rwanda, Kenya, and winds down in Boston.

You probably could take that trip for less than $160,000, but you might be hard-pressed to fit in seeing Bengal Tigers, Honey Bears, Lemurs, and even Golden Monkeys. Not only that, but you’ll be staying in luxury hotels, eating delicious food, and having access to some of the most beautiful natural wonders of the world.

You can check the whole six-figure itinerary here if only to make your daydreams a little more extravagant.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
