In our latest episode of Travelogue, we dive deep into adventure in its many forms. We discuss how New Zealand basically invented extreme sports, share tales of rallies from the U.K. to Siberia that take two months, and try and parse what makes the best countries for adventure travel, well, the best. We also look closely at the evolution of extreme selfie-takers—in many ways, the new daredevils—and fold in a pretty good whale joke that actually is relevant to one editor's weekend of canyoning, biking, hiking, and being pushed to the limits in the Azores, an archipelago flung some 850 miles off the coast of Portugal. The rest? Well, you'll just have to listen up.
