On-The-Go Hot Tub
Stationary hot tubs are so passé. Thanks to Dutch designers Frank de Bruijn and Jochem Karstanje, now you can relax in a tub of 100-degree water while cruising around a lake, river or canal. The new HotTug is a wood-fired hot tub boat – available with or without an electric motor – that seats six to eight people. OK, it looks a little strange, and it may not be the most practical contraption. But it looks pretty fun, doesn't it?

Andrew McCarthy -- perhaps best known for his starring role opposite Molly Ringwald in "Pretty in Pink" (1986) -- does more than act and direct these days. He's also a travel writer, and he just published his first book, "The Longest Way Home: One Man's Quest for the Courage to Settle Down." In it, McCarthy takes readers to Patagonia, Mount Kilimanjaro, Costa Rica and beyond as he explores his love of solo travel and his hesitancy to re-marry. It's a touching read that will please fans of McCarthy's films and armchair travelers alike.

Wind flows over and around its bubble-like canopy, preventing an inversion and acting as a shell that blocks wind chill. It stays put with a pair of shoulder straps -- leaving your hands free.
