  • aug 17 2020Summer on the road across Canada

  • jun 18 2020Algonquin canoe trip

    Relatively chill solo canoe trip through the Joe, Burnt Island, Little Doe lakes. Four days, three nights June 12-15, 2020. The bugs were pretty darn bad.

  • jun 03 2020Rarotonga and New Zealand

    Feb 17 - Mar 19, 2018. Rarotonga, Cook Islands for a few days, then a relatively short flight to Auckland, NZ. Travel via busses and ferries through the North and South Islands, with two multi-day 'tramps' around tropical lakes, and golden beaches along the coast.
