Drift Ice Walking in Hokkaido, Japan

Excitement mounts on my bus filled with fellow outdoor adventurers from around the globe as we follow the Shiretoko National Highway north to the Shiretoko Peninsula on the eastern shore of Hokkaido, Japan’s most northerly island. Hugging the shore for miles, the empty highway offers views of drift ice as far as the eye can see. It’s particularly beautiful in the soft glow of a setting sun over the Sea of Okhotsk, a name that conjures up exotic images of bearded, vodka swilling Russians. Watc...

6 Ways to Juggle Your Work Life and Personal Life in the New Year

By Rose Morris In the current workplace environment, there seems to be great value placed on finding the perfect work-life balance. However, this idea of balancing the scales between your work life and personal life is a myth we need to blow out of the water. As an entrepreneur, business owner and mom of three, including a son with special needs, it’s not about finding the perfect balance, but rather learning how to juggle. Think about your own life – can you imagine all of the different facets ...

30 Photos to Inspire a Patagonia Hiking Trip

I’ve been drooling over photos of Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares National Parks in Patagonia for a couple of decades – long before they became hot spots. Both parks are busy now, especially the W Circuit in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park; fortunately for us the first four days on the O Circuit are quiet, at least in comparison. I feel lucky to have visited both parks – but what a lot of work it is to organize this end of the world experience. I understand now why people book tours. ...

What to Pack for Japan in Winter

In short order I am heading off on a trip to Hokkaido – Japan’s most northerly main island. I have been warned by the group that invited me to be prepared for chilly temperatures.

Hokkaido, which is at the same latitude as Toronto, is famous for its spectacular mountain scenery, volcanoes, natural hot springs and ski areas. I am told that the average temperature in Sapporo in January is -3.6 °C – and I suspect ...

How to Spend a Day at the End of the World in Punta Arenas, Chile

Chances are high if you’re planning a visit to Patagonia that you’ll fly from Santiago into Punta Arenas, Chile – a seaside city known as the “end of the world.” It certainly has that sense about it. It’s both bigger, windier and more colourful than I imagined it to be with an overriding sense of loneliness about it, largely because I hardly saw a soul, except on the boardwalk late in the afternoon. Despite its location near the tip of South America, it’s still another 2,000 kilometres from Anta...
