Actor Josh Duhamel takes us around the world
An actor who’s appeared in TV shows and movies as varied as the Transformers franchise, the daytime soap All My Children , crime drama Battle Creek and the sweet teen comedy Love, Simon , .
Josh Duhamel is one of those versatile talents who’s at home almost everywhere
Recently appointed brand ambassador for Canadian lifestyle and athleisure brand
the outdoor enthusiast (and almost Canadian) has also backed as equity investor and part owner.
The partnership coincides with the launch of Lolë’s new travel-wear line for men across North America.
“ takes an ‘everyday basic’ and gives it a cutting-edge style that allows you to go from a meeting to a spontaneous hike in the woods, .
Or whatever it is that you’re into,” Duhamel said at the launch
The connection to fashion is not far fetched—Duhamel started out as a model and in 1997 won the title of Male Model of the Year.
(A few years ago he confessed to Harper’s Bazaar : “I was really unsuccessful at it.
I never felt comfortable posing in front of a camera….
[But] I so wanted to win.
I felt like Miss America when I won that thing.”) These days Duhamel has traded in the runway for outdoor adventure and time at his off-the-grid cabin in Minnesota.
Where in the world have you felt happiest.
My cabin in Minnesota.
It’s the place I go to get back to the basics, keep it simple and reconnect.
To get away from it all, I go to:.
Same place I feel the happiest—my cabin in Minnesota
This is truly my little corner of heaven on Earth
It’s where I feel most alive.

2020 at 5:50am PST What’s your guilty pleasure while travelling.
All dietary discipline goes out the window.
What’s your pet travel peeve.
When I get woken up on the airplane.
What piece of travel advice do you love to share.
Try not to plan too much.
What was a time you pushed yourself?.
We went to Oahu to really test the brand
Not only was it a lot of fun, but we did some pretty adventurous stuff, from cliff jumping into the ocean, to climbing a crazy hike and skydiving.
You think of Hawaii as a place of comfort and easy vacations
but I did things truly outside my comfort zone.
Would you jump out of a plane.
✈️ @joshduhamel did and it taught him a beautiful life lesson – overcoming your fears can be the best way to grow.
That’s living out loud everyday.

Every time I travel I meet someone interesting.
That’s part of the appeal of doing it.
What trip-of-a-lifetime lies ahead for you.
I lost my heart in….
What’s the place you were/are most nervous about visiting.
It was daunting at first because of all the prep to go (vaccines, etc.), but it ended up being one of the best experiences of my life.
Which travel experience most changed your worldview and why.
Tanzania. There’s something transformative and impactful about this destination that left an impression I’ll never forget.
We got to see animals in their natural habitat and the communities that surround and support them.
Those who have nothing are the happiest people I’ve ever met.

2019 at 1:44pm PDT Tell us about a trip of self discovery.
I had the opportunity to visit Montreal see where my ancestors come from
as my dad’s side is Canadian.
I’d never been, but always wanted to go.
This was a chance for me to visit a part of the world my family originally came from.
If you could live in any other city in the world (other than your own), which would it be and why.
San Francisco, because it’s close to everything, skiing, ocean, wine country.
The Most Beautiful Sunsets in the World.
Some of the world’s best places to watch the day close.
