I arrived at baggage claim at St. John’s airport; it was my first time to visit Newfoundland. I saw Caroline and a short, stout man smiling at me and I sighed in relief. It’s always great when a plan comes together with your flights on time and you meet up with your travel companions as […]

The sun dips down in the sky disappearing into the Atlantic Ocean. I seldom have watched a sunset so intently; waiting, waiting, waiting for that last little sliver to disappear.

The sky was just starting to get light at 6:30AM. I moved slowly still trying to wake up as I took a deep breath of salty sea air. Palamos still felt like a ghost town at this hour, except for the little bustling activity around the fishing port. I watched as men greeted each other […]

I looked around the Two Rivers post office wondering what it was like to live in such a small community in Alaska. In this tiny little ‘rest stop’ along the Chena Hot Spring Road, the post office and the general store were attached to each other and seemed to be the hot spot of the […]
