Mission Accomplished: Arctic Circle!

Posted by on June 17, 2011

Gary at the Arctic Circle

I just wanted to post a quick update while I had the time and internet bandwidth here in Whitehorse.

Two days ago I made the trip up the Dempster Highway to the Arctic Circle in the Yukon! It was a long trip that I’ll be writing about in more detail once I get some time to settle down and edit my photos, but this was something I wanted to mention right away.

I’m off to take aerial photos of glaciers in Kluane National Park today.

….and yes, I am wearing sandals at the Arctic Circle!

This Week In Travel – Episode 86

Posted by on June 13, 2011

This was a live episode recorded at Il Nido Restaurant in Vancouver. We were doing this with a live audience and so we had a bunch of guests over the course of the show coming and going. This was by far our longest show, but it was also the most fun to record.

The last 7 weeks have been crazy. I don’t think I have done as much in so little time in the four years I’ve been on the road traveling. Just go give you a recap of the last, almost 2 months:

  • 14 countries: Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy, Croatia, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Liechtenstein, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey.
  • 13 languages: Czech, German, Slovakian, Slovenian, Italian, Croatian, Spanish, Catalonian, Swiss German, Hungarian, Romanian, Bulgarian and Turkish.
  • 8 currencies: Czech Crowns, Euros, Croatian Kunas, Swiss Francs, Hungarian Florints, Romanian Leis, Bulgarian Levs and Turkish Lirias.
  • I’ve traveled across borders on buses, trains, planes and ships.
  • I walked from Europe to Asia….and back.
