Pushing the boundaries

I have an acute memory as to when I first realized just how terrified I was of heights and, surprisingly, it’s a fear that I didn’t realize I had until well into my 20s. It was back in 2004, on my first trip to the Grand Canyon. Alas, if you ever need a place to serve as a barometer to […]

Fighting Thru The Blerch

I first became aware of The Blerch thru the wonderful and hilarious comic series by The Oatmeal. The more I learned about The Blerch, the more I hated it. In Matthew Inman’s (The Oatmeal’s creator) own words, The Blerch is “…a wretched, lazy beast. He tells me to slow down, to walk, to […]

The Boulder Beach at Unstad, Norway

Navigating the loose boulders that make up the shore of Unstad Beach in Norway was tricky to say the least.
