Stillness

On Tuesday evening I returned home after my most recent adventure to Rigolet and Happy Valley-Goose Bay. You may recall that I was supposed to have travelled to Rigolet in February but Old Man Winter had other plans that included blizzards, snow, more snow, freezing temperatures, delayed flights, more snow, cancelled flights, rebooked flights, more snow, cancelled…

The Adventure Continues: Take II

Remember that time in February when I was supposed to board a shiny metal lawn dart on my way through Halifax and Happy Valley-Goose Bay to Rigolet? And remember how Old Man Winter decided to crush my travel plans because he’s an old cranky bastard? Well here’s hoping that Old Man Winter doesn’t decide to crush…

The Adventure Is Postponed

So after several flight delays, and then a cancellation, and then further delays and flight changes, and then threats of more bad weather, the Labrador Research Forum was officially postponed until the end of April. Sadly this means that my adventure to Labrador has also been postponed. Damn you Old Man Winter, damn you to…

A Summer By The Numbers

It’s been roughly a week since I returned home from an epic summer adventure that had me flying through numerous time zones, visiting multiple countries, and spending most of my time expecting to wake up from some fantastic dream.

Around The World In 170 Days

After an epic start to the summer semester, I’m faced with the sad reality that in a few days I will board an oversized shiny metal lawn dart on my long journey back to Toronto.  Fortunately, the summer is only truly just beginning.

The Great Goose Chase

After spending an incredible week in Rigolet, the Researchers (a.k.a. #PolarPeeps, a.k.a. Alex, Ashlee, Oliver, and me) were off to Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

I Miss You Rigolet

On Sunday afternoon, Oliver and I packed our bags and boarded the first of three planes that would take us from Rigolet – our home-away-from-home for the past week – back to Guelph. Boo. All sorts of boo. I may have separation anxiety.

To Rigolet, And Beyond

After three flights, and a crashed wedding party, Oliver and I have arrived in Rigolet, Nunatsiavut. 

Feed The Wanderbeast

It probably comes as no surprise that I’ve been wanderlusting as of late. What might be a surprise is how strong that desire has been.
