Dinosaur Provincial Park Alberta

Dinosaur Provincial Park Alberta This time, my lack of adventurousness is pretty lame-o. For our Grand Canyon visit, I’d torn my hamstring so we had to take it easy. That’s fair enough.  Torn hamstrings are pretty serious things. During our visit to Lake Agnes, it was a bizarre inner ear thing that afflicted me. For our […]

Lake Agnes Canada

Lake Agnes Canada Last week, we posted about our serene walk around Lake Louise. After we checked out Lake Louise, we also did the “moderate” walk up to Mirror Lake, Agnes Lake, and to Agnes Lake Teahouse.

Banff Gondola One of the things I love about travel is how universal some experiences are. Some things just transcend language. I’ve seen examples of this being on a train on the western suburbs in Sydney, Australia. Everyone in the carriage was Sudanese apart from me. And one of the guys was copping it from several […]

Grand Canyon National Park Arizona

And trust me, I wanted to do all of these things. Sometimes, life gets in the way of the best laid travel plans. Shortly before we left […]

This will be a short one just to share our latest blog post over at Dave’s Travel Corner The Stranger Side of Travel. If you know me, South Nomad, well, […]
