This story of inexplicable terror happened at a haunted hostel in Northern Ontario on our drive across Canada. It is worth mentioning right upfront that neither of us is paranormally inclined. We don’t receive visitations from the other side nor do we discover messages from beyond on burned pieces of toast. However, on this particular night we were put through our paces […]

I’ve always been drawn to the forsaken beauty of the California desert, its highways that extend to the horizon, and discoveries just off the beaten path. About half an hour outside Victorville, on the iconic Route 66, the first opportunity to explore the strange world of desert art appears near Helendale. Elmer’s Place, or the […]

Since water out in the desert is in short supply, it makes total sense to take sound baths instead, right? Sure… wait, say what?! The desert in California is home to a number of extraordinary, and sometimes downright eccentric, operations. Some attribute it to geomagnetic forces, while others blame the sun that never stops beating […]

Midsummer Sun in Finland
0 comments / 0 votes

While the summer solstice is marked in some way in many countries, in Finland the Midsummer Eve or juhannus is one of the biggest celebrations of the year. It virtually turns cities into ghost towns as people rush off to their cottages across the country for that brief spell of midsummer magic. Historically juhannus was celebrated […]

Surrounded by majestic mountains, but open to the waters of the Pacific, Vancouver is one of the world’s truly remarkable cities. No wonder Vancouver is regularly recognized as one of the world’s best places to live! Some of the best hiking in Canada is within sight of downtown Vancouver.
