Urban Fun in São Paulo

“So, we leave from Santos Dumont and we land in Congonhas.” “Awesome!” Santos Dumont is in Centro Rio de Janeiro and Congonhas is also a “city airport” in São Paulo, so it means shorter taxi rides than if we were using the larger international airports. “Wait… isn’t Congonhas the one with super short runways and the congestion issue?” Feng shrugs. Oh well. I slept during the one-hour flight from Rio to São Paulo, but I sure woke up when we arrived—it was a hard landing in what’s said to be one o...

Travel Alert January 2019: Major Winter Storms to Impact the Eastern United States and Canada

If the eastern half of the United States and Canada are in your travel plans over the next couple of days, you may want to consider delaying your travel — or, at least, keep yourself updated as to the latest information pertaining to the weather — due to the effects resulting from two major winter storms, which is expected to affect at least 85 airports in as many as 34 states and five provinces. One winter weather system follows another; and when all is said and done, as much as 36 inches — yes...

50 Photos that tell our 2018 story

Year in Review: 50 Photos from our 2018 travels Every year we have good intentions to write our ‘Year in Review’ posts before the year is complete. And, every year, we fall short of this goal. This year was no different. We had a wonderful end to the year and have spent the past week catching up and getting our lives back on track. 2018 will go down as the milestone year. We celebrated 10 years of marriage with a vow renewal ceremony on the beach in Mexico. We celebrated Cameron’s 40th birt...

The Orange Jello Obsession (And Much Tastier Brazilian Foods in Pictures)

In São Paulo, around New Year’s Eve, Mark became obsessed with orange jello. It’s a fairly common dessert in “por kilo” buffet-style restaurants, although it’s not as much as in North America (… because Brazilians have better options?) We had the jello discussion several times in Canada. Some of his friends apparently eat gelatin but I refuse to buy Jell-O cups because the nutritional contents of his lunchbox already makes me want to scream. But Mark was really craving Brazilian jello. One night...

U.S. will reportedly seek criminal case against Huawei for stealing tech secrets

According to a , U.S. federal prosecutors are preparing a criminal indictment against Huawei stealing trade secrets. The report, which cites sources with knowledge of the indictment, specifically mentions Huawei’s actions surrounding a T-Mobile smartphone testing tool known as “Tappy.” The report notes that the current investigation is far enough along that an indictment may come soon. This isn’t the first we’ve heard of Tappy. In 2014, T-Mobile sued Huawei for allegedly gaining access to a com...

Harmonix Harmony

I find it a bit funny and strange that last week I found myself playing not one, but two games from Harmonix, having terrific play experiences with each. Sure, I’ve enjoyed Rock Band games in the past (especially the Beatles one), but I hadn’t played anything from them in a while, and although it’s a coincidence I found myself playing both DropMix and Amplitude at the same, it’s a happy one. DropMix is an electronic board/card game the company released a year or two ago. I remember hearing it w...

Countries you can't visit with a DUI

Getting a DUI will make your life harder in multiple ways, but we rarely consider the impact it can have on your ability to travel abroad. Sure, the potential for injury to you and others, astronomical fines, marks on your record, and possible jail time should be big enough to deter you from drinking and driving, but to top it off, some countries may bar you from entering their borders for as many as 10 years. The last thing you want is to book your dream vacation, arrive at the country’s bor...

Air traffic controllers sent pizza

In a generous show of solidarity with their colleagues south of the border, Canadian air traffic controllers have been purchasing pizzas to be delivered to American air traffic controllers who aren’t getting paid during the government shutdown. It’s estimated that around 300 pizzas have been delivered so far, to over 36 facilities nationwide. The pizzas are coming from air traffic controllers all across Canada, from Vancouver to Toronto, and they’re certainly a bright spot in an otherwise dou...

Why Ben Smith Killed Joon Despite Loving a Similar Idea in His Last Job

You’ve likely heard that Air France has decided to mercifully put an end to its ridiculous Joon experiment. I hated pretty much everything about Joon from the moment it was announced, so this is yet another very encouraging sign that current group CEO Ben Smith is putting the airline on the right track for the first time in ages. But for those who followed Ben from his previous role at Air Canada, this might seem like a strange move. After all, he was behind Rouge, a similar idea, right? The...

Stuck in Hours-Long Traffic Jams on Ilha de Santa Catarina

You know you’ve been stuck in a traffic jam for too long if the songs play in the alphabetically and you started with Alanis Morissette to end up only a few kilometres further with Bono complaining about the world. “Why don’t they put a hónglǜdēng here? Don’t you agree, Juliette? I mean, that’s common sense, isn’t it?” Feng is so annoyed he used the Chinese word for “traffic light”. I shrug. I agree with him but obviously, there’s no light, just an endless line of cars trying to turn, merge, get...

What its Like to Heli Hike in the Cariboos

You don’t hear much about the Cariboos – a group of rugged, remote mountains in east-central British Columbia at the northern end of the Columbia Mountains, about 100 kilometres due west of Mount Robson Provincial Park. There’s a reason for that. Unless you have a helicopter or you’re exceptionally skilled in the backcountry, the area is basically off-limits.  Being whisked around this landscape is a huge thrill But as a guest of CMH, owners and operators of the Cariboo Lodge, I am one of t...

The Tao of Not Traveling

At seventeen years old, I set out from home on my own for the first time. I was gone for ten months on a trip which took me around the globe in a northwestward fashion, at once both slowly closing and widening the gap that separated me from my parent’s farm in Manitoba, Canada. There was no great mystery in the trip – it was of a determinate length and I knew beforehand, more or less, the countries I would be passing through. What made it something notable to me was that the furthest I had gone...

Best places to find fossils

Combing the Earth for million-year-old fossils is a job many dream about but few actually pursue, but the good news is that it’s surprisingly easy to pull off as a hobby. A number of sites across the United States and the United Kingdom welcome amateur fossil hunters, as well as select spots across the globe. Countries like China, Argentina, and Morocco are rich with ancient remains though strict regulations can make excavations and even surface collection difficult. While above-board tours a...

From a Year on the Road | By Larry Mogelonsky

As 2018 draws to a close, I'm taking stock: a month in Japan, a wedding in Australia, three work trips to Europe, eight sojourns to the USA and half a dozen domestic journeys (within Canada). I don't think of myself as a road warrior but rather an enthusiastic traveler, with the former classification reserved for those who 'have to' and the latter for those that 'want to' travel.
