Ontario’s Ocean

Sadly, my journey through Ontario has come to an end. It began humbly enough–by crossing a bridge in a cab from Detroit into Windsor. More than a month (and several thousand miles) later, I stepped off a train in Moosonee, then jumped into a small skiff and headed up for the few extra miles north…

Algoma Unplugged

Canoe with a View

Some hotels give you chocolate on your pillow. Others offer rooms with kitchenettes or Jacuzzi bathtubs. My hotel gave me a canoe—everyone gets a canoe with their little log cottage and I took full advantage, setting off across The Lake of Two Rivers with a lunch and a paddle. Later in the day, I upgraded…

Happy Canada Day!

Our intrepid global nomad Andrew Evans is gearing up for his next big trip…but where exactly is still under wraps. Today he visits the National Geographic Maps division to pick up some maps for his journey. I love maps. For me, maps are the seeds of good travel and it’s how I begin all my…

Bus2Antarctica Video: The Rare Black Penguin

Antarctica’s South Georgia Island has a population of several million penguins. I know that for a fact because I think I took that many pictures of them. One of those penguins happened to be black–all black–and perhaps you noticed, that one penguin’s been getting a bit of attention lately. Several people have asked if I…
