NEW ORLEANS - JANUARY 16: Larry Fitzgerald #11 of the Arizona Cardinals looks on against the New Orleans Saints during the NFC Divisional Playoff Game at Louisana Superdome on January 16, 2010 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Saints won 45-14. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)
As a 29-year-old man who makes $16 million a year playing a kids game with a tremendous amount of vacation time, Larry Fitzgerald is a blessed man. And kudos to him for making the most of the fact that he's one of the most fortunate people in the world when it comes to having opportunities to adventure and explore.  The Arizona Cardinals All-Pro wide receiver is quite the world traveler. Two offseasons ago, he documented his experience in Africa for NFL.com. That was the second year in a row that featured an African trip for Fitzgerald, who according to ArizonaSports.com hit Mexico, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas within the first three weeks of the 2012 offseason.  Later in 2012 he flew to South America, with a stop on the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. Oh, and then up to Panama for the first time. This offseason, he's already been spanning the globe.  He found out he was going to the Pro Bowl while vacationing in Anguilla. Thus he had to cut that trip short and hop over to Hawaii. Tough. He also hung with Tracy Morgan at the Super Bowl, but that was nothing compared to his international adventures. GearJunkie.com has a nice breakdown of everything else that has gone down for Fitzgerald since the end of the regular season, and it almost seems like a joke because of the ridiculousness attached to his itinerary.  He went ice climbing in Slovenia... He went zip-lining in Guatemala... He paid a visit to Machu Picchu... He chilled on a volcano in Nicaragua... And he went scuba diving in Colombia... And it's only March. Oh, and don't worry about Fitzgerald loses his focus on these trips, Cardinals fans. He told AskMen.com that he brings his trainer with him everywhere he travels.
