A Political Tour of Belfast

Did you know that Belfast is a city divided? Still? I didn’t. Watching TV as a child and teenager, I can remember a backdrop of both violence and positive change across the world: the end of apartheid, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Oslo accords and the Good Friday Agreement. These resolutions seemed to halt […]

Ascending Norway’s Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen)

When I found out I’d be doing some trekking while in Norway, it was hard not to think of my past experience trekking in Nepal and be a little concerned. I had learned the hard way that trekking was not for me. Especially in the rain. Preconceptions aside, I was willing to give it another go. […]

Exploring Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast with a Toddler on My Back

I’ll be honest. I had never heard of the Giant’s Causeway before watching Matt Harding dance on it in 2008. From that point it was on my must-visit-list. I love natural phenomenons and Giant’s Causeway looked too good to be true. How could something that looks so artificial exist in nature? Our trip to Belfast was […]

Trekking Norway’s Nigardsbreen Glacier

Although my Norway itinerary was packed with exciting activities, glacier trekking was probably the one I was most looking forward to. It’s hard not to be inspired by glaciers. Growing up on Long Island we learn from a young age that it was a glacier that originally formed the island itself. Since learning that as […]

Vik, Iceland: the Perfect Daytrip from Reykjavik

Iceland is amazing. In fact, otherworldly is often the most appropriate word to describe it.  The capital, Reykjavik, is a fabulous city and great place to base yourself but the country has so much to offer within such close proximity. Once you’ve explored the Golden Triangle, snowmobiled on a glacier and eaten all the whale […]

Despite my positive attitude, my brother seems a bit skeptical over the idea of eating this raw piece of whale meat

The Time I Was So Hungry, I Ate a Whale

Before I went to Iceland I had a pretty good idea that I was going to be eating some unusual things. Everyone knows about the “national dish” of fermented shark meat known as Hakarl that all tourists must suffer though. For some reason I was much more excited over things like reindeer and puffin. Eating whale […]

A Beach Made Entirely of Shells?

While exploring Australia’s Western Coast, I learned of a beach that was said to be made entirely of shells. Entirely of shells? That had to be an exaggeration. A beach made of shells? Determined to find out, I crossed Australia by train, sought the counsel of a Princess, then headed up the coast from Geralton to an […]
