Snowbound

Mother Nature has decided that it’s probably best if I stay in Happy Valley-Goose Bay for a little while longer than I had anticipated. Also, in case it wasn’t obvious, I’m currently in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

The Weirdening Continues

Remember how I wrote just the other day that my life is weird, but not in a bad way? And how I wrote over a week ago that I had a series of half-finished stories that I promised I’d talk about when they came to fruition? Well, tomorrow one more of those stories comes to…

My Life Is Weird

Well, that week flew by. It’s now Sunday and my list of things that I wanted to accomplish last week is sadly lacking in the ever-so-satisfying checkmarks that give me that sweet sweet endorphin rush.

Oats Not Goats

During my recent adventure exploring the United Kingdom with my brother, his girlfriend, and my friend Corey, we found ourselves in Swansea, Wales for a few days. And while I’ve written about this particular part of our adventure already, there’s one part of it that I haven’t written about as of yet.

Last Night In London

After spending the last several days sauntering around London (and the last three weeks sauntering around the UK), I’ve come to the sad realization that tomorrow I will be boarding the first of many shiny metal lawn darts that will define 2018 as I make my way back to Toronto. Boo. So much boo.

The Year That Could Be

I spent the better part of yesterday wandering around London – because that’s what one does when they are on vacation with no set plans. Given that my normal day-to-day revolves around a very scheduled calendar and the bing of emails as they cascade relentlessly into my inbox, I’m thinking that my return to the real world…

The Year That Was

Well, for all of its ups and downs, its highs and lows, that was 2017. It was a weird year that I’m honestly struggling to reconcile. Normally these end-of-year posts write themselves, but this year was extraordinary – and not always for good reasons.

Here I Go Again

Well, I’m back at Pearson International Airport waiting to board another shiny metal lawn dart. In particular, this shiny metal lawn dart I’m about to board represents my 43rd for the year. My destination – Quebec City for the Arctic Change conference.

Shiny Metal Lawn Dart 41

I know this will likely come as no surprise, but I’m once again sitting at Pearson International Airport (after having spent the day in Toronto at the Council of Ontario Universities Experiential Learning Best Practices Exchange) waiting to board the next shiny metal lawn dart that will take me from here to there. In this…

Research Onesies

We arrived in Happy Valley-Goose Bay Friday afternoon following a snowy ride from Rigolet onboard the Northern Ranger. While not nearly as quick as flying through the air in a glorified metal lawn dart, travelling on the Northern Ranger was a fantastic and relaxing way to make the journey while providing an opportunity to see…

Black And White

For those of you who follow me on the Instagrams or on Facebook, you’ll know that for the last week I’ve been posting a black and white photo on the daily. For those of you who don’t follow me, you may have seen some of your friends taking part in a similar challenge on any…

Destination: Labrador

In one week, at around this time, I’ll be taking off from Pearson International Airport in a glorified metal lawn dart on my way to Happy Valley-Goose Bay (via Halifax), on my way back to Rigolet.

My Weekend Getaway In The Future

After a two and a half day visit to Guelph, I found myself last Thursday evening sitting aboard another glorified metal lawn dart preparing myself for a very long flight. It was 5:20 pm, and I was about to depart for a weekend adventure in the future.

That Time I Went To Vancouver And All The Things Happened

Just over a week ago I arrived at Pearson International Airport to board my 27th flight of the year. And while it started off as a typical trip to Vancouver (in fact, my 4th in the last year), it has been full of a number of surprises.
