As the rain came down, I looked up the steep rock face and wondered just how high it went past the fog ceiling. I felt like Jack and the Beanstalk climbing into the unknown, dodging mythical trolls and wondering if I would ever make it back down. But this was one of the main reasons […]

Add This Goat Safari to Your Norway Itinerary
“Do you want to take the baby goats to pasture, “ Farmer Petter asked me. My eyes lit up and I felt 7 years old again. “Yes, yes! I’d love to take the baby goats anywhere!” I replied. Oh happy day! I’m not sure what it is about farms, but no matter how old you […]
Big Fish Little Fish – Norway Fishing Then & Now
“Are you a fisherman?” the stranger asked me “No,” I answered quickly, but then hesitated and corrected myself – “well, maybe?” I realized, in the last year, I’ve actually done quite a bit of fishing. I went fishing for the first time in Maine last year and sort of got ‘lured in’…see what I did […]
Fjord Norway Road Trip
I never really paid much attention to centerlines on roads, until we no longer had one. It’s one of those things you take for granted until it’s gone. The lack of a centerline wasn’t because it was a one-way street, the roads were all two way streets, but they were so narrow there was no […]
How Many Ways Can You Eat Lobster?
I love lobster, like really L-O-V-E lobster – I would choose to eat lobster for my final meal if I had to. When I decided to go back to the Canadian Maritimes, it wasn’t the beautiful hikes, welcoming Acadian culture, seaside villages, or biking trails that had me most excited; it was the opportunity to […]
Take a Houseboat Vacation and Learn to Relax
“But what is there to do for 4 days on a houseboat vacation?” I asked Dalene and Pete one day when we were chatting on Facebook planning our upcoming trip to New Brunswick. “You just relax,” Dalene answered in a somewhat surprised that-was-a-stupid-question tone. I was skeptical. Relax…that seems easy, right? For most people it […]
Things to do in Tuktoyaktuk Northwest Territories
If you just come, put your foot in the Arctic Ocean, or walk on it in winter and turn around – then you are missing out. To really experience Tuktoyaktuk (Tuk as the locals call it), you need to stay a night, walk around, get stuck in the snow, rely on the kindness of the […]
4 Fun Things to do On The Water in Maine
Maine is well-known for its 5,000 mile coastline—from sandy beaches to lighthouses on granite cliffs. Yes, I know what you are thinking – 5,000 miles – no way! Actually, it has 293 miles if you draw a line from the top to the bottom of the state along the coast. However, the Maine coast isn’t […]
Why Would Someone Live in the Canadian Arctic?
At the far north end of the Dempster Highway sits the remote community of Inuvik. Located 125 miles above the Arctic Circle, with only one road connecting it to the rest of the globe. The community not only lives with, but also thrives in, 9 months of winter-like weather and 1 month of total darkness. […]
What Are Instagram Stories And How Do You View Them?
Everyone has a story…and my job is finding them and sharing them. My goal is to inspire more people to get out and be curious about the world and find their own stories and epic adventures. Luckily the process of sharing a story just got easier. What are Instagram Stories Instead of the usual viewing […]
