Before I worked in the ski industry, I got my feet wet in the wine world while working at small wine shops in Boulder, Colorado. I immersed myself in learning about different grape varietals, aging methods, growing techniques and of course, the requisite tasting of fun and funky bottles.

PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (AP) — Makerita Iosefo Vaʻa hasn’t been home for nearly eight months — the longest she’s ever been away from American Samoa. She longs for the breezes that cool island humidity and the ocean sounds and smells that permeate her home in the village of Tula.

Flying while fat

Ines Vuckovic/Dose This story first appeared on Dose on Medium and is republished here with permission. Flying on a plane is one of the most dehumanizing experiences a fat person can have.
