CANADA | Sun, 13 Dec 2015 | By lifeinthefoodlane | Views [430]

You know it’s arctic cold when your cheeks sting with needlepoint pricks, and snot glues your nostrils together with each breath.  In the lounge of the float base we are greeted by John, who brings in boxes full of parkas, ... Read more >

Oh hail the brussel sprout tree...

UNITED KINGDOM | Mon, 7 Dec 2015 | By the_life_of_lady_laura | Views [318]

It’s true; brussel sprout trees are a ‘thing’. Essentially the stalk of the plant with the sprouts still attached; shops here are selling them for around $5 a tree. Now, I’m not sure where you stand on the sprout debate, but personally ... Read more >

They Kiss Thrice in Switzerland

SWITZERLAND | Wed, 30 Sep 2015 | By marielasummerhays | Views [216]

The sweet scent of freshly baked bread rode a crisp wind to greet me, gently pulling me from my intended path to the train station. Nowhere to be in a hurry, I let the comforting aroma lead me to a nearby bakery. Perfectly uniform pastries lined the ... Read more >

Doing the Thermal Pool Shuffle

ICELAND | Fri, 20 Feb 2015 | By the_life_of_lady_laura | Views [225]

I think I may have had an idealistic view of what Iceland would be like. Sure I know it is called the land of 'ice and fire' for a reason, but I'd been diligently checking the weather forecasts for the week or so before we left and the forecast was miserable ... Read more >

He stole a small white memo pad from his host's house. He was hoping they would not mind. He just needed to write things down. He knew that by writing things down, he would avoid going crazy. That is what they said on the radio. As soon as he found ... Read more >

CZECH REPUBLIC | Tue, 21 Jan 2014 | By joannawong | Views [363]

It's snowing today!! Just when I thought I wouldn't see Prague in white this time and would have to come back. While walking in the rain yesterday was more ridiculous than romantic, walking in the snow today was just as magical as I imagined it to be.... Read more >

Altitude: 3700m. We are making our way down. The sad news is we never made it to the top. The weather didn't look like it was getting better with what looked like a cold front heading towards Everest, suggesting another snow storm. There was also ... Read more >

Altitude: 4940m.  We have made it here after an arduous walk up and across some very snowy terrain. Today was, without a doubt, the toughest slog after Tok Tok. The trail seemed almost endless, completely surrounded with white for hours and beyond.... Read more >

Altitude: 4270m. This is the highest I've ever been! And I'm only going to continue climbing! We treaded through some snow (and slush) to get here. Thankfully, even with the recent weather and the conditions it's caused, it's been an alright day.... Read more >
