    Aurora borealis in Auyuittuq National Park.

    I don’t have a bucket list. For a long time, I would just go for things as they appear on my radar. I would not spend years planning for something. If you want to do it, why wait? Yet when I first went to Nunavut 3 years ago, I knew it was not the complete adventure. It was only an appetizer, a small bite, a trial sized trip as I get ready for the real thing. Ready how? Ready to take the time and do it, I was telling myself at first, but really, ready to go despite having some things I was afraid of. Like harsh weather and polar bears. Minor concerns. And then a small conversation with a stranger on a tangentially related matter convinced me to go ahead and make the call. The call to Aeroplan that is, to book the airfare. And then it was official. We’re going to Pangnirtung, we’re getting a boat to the Auyuittuq National Park, we’re hiking there for 10 days, and then, if we’re still in one piece, we’re going back home. Continue reading…

    At 6 am the light seeping through the window was strong enough to wake us up. I quickly dressed, pulled up my boots and opened the door to see the tiniest sliver of sun rising above the water. It was one of the most magical sunrises I have seen.

  4. Bahía de Los Ángeles to San Francisquito

    One of my favourite times in Bahía de Los Ángeles is early morning, just as the sun rises over the bay. Before even having breakfast, we headed to the beach for a relaxing walk. It quickly reminded me why I keep coming back to this little village. It is not only peaceful but also incredibly beautiful, even by the high standards of the Baja scenery.
