Swimming with Whale Sharks in Mexico

I ignored them and clicked the videos tab. I wanted to see what whale sharks were like. Now, on the other side of [...]

Cooking Classes in San Jose del Cabo

We were supposed to be heading to cooking classes in San Jose del Cabo. The twisting road led past twenty-foot-high clumps of Mexican weeping bamboo and down onto the dusty bottom of a wide, dried up river bed. I began to wonder if Edgar, our excellent driver, had finally made a wrong turn. But [...]

Jazamango in Todos Santos

Our guide, a local farm hand on the on-site farm at Jazamango Todos Santos, didn’t speak English. Luckily, we had a translator. We wound our way along rows of herbs and vegetables, while our guide talked nearly non-stop. After a couple of minutes of Spanish, our translator would translate, usually in a single sentence. [...]

Day Trip to Todos Santos

On my day trip to Todos Santos, I entered Kersten Kiehnle Mutzenbecher’s shop, just off the main tourist street, and fell into a cornucopia of oddities. Painted metal figures of animals and people, their skull faces smiling happily, stared from the walls. The flaked paint and rust on many showed their age. Every available [...]

Nunavut: Experience the Spirit of the Arctic

Standing in the middle of the Arctic ice, wind rippling around me, and nothing but a small wood shack and a tiny fishing hole to call home, it dawns on me: I’m exploring one of the most remote regions on earth, and yet haven’t even left Canada.

Iqaluit Snowmobile Tours: The Rush of Racing Snowmobiles Through the Arctic

Just a few days earlier, I was standing in my kitchen making lunch for the kids… Yet here I was, with a 150hp metal beast racing me across jagged ice fields and around the frozen ice peaks of the Arctic Ocean. Looking out into the vast nothingness that laid out on the horizon, -30° air [...]
