Stepping in front of the camera for Uganda

More coverage for Uganda! Although this was painful for me as I prefer to be behind the camera I lent my side of the story to Pink magazine for their April issue. Here you will get to learn a little bit more about me, how I got into storytelling and of course my great adventure in Uganda. Enjoy!

Remebering Waskesiu

The trek up to Prince Albert Park to explore Waskesiu was a memorable one. As you will recall I blogged a while back about wolf trekking and dog sledding.This month’s article I wrote for Pink goes into more detail on how I went about finding winter in Waskesiu. And I sure did find it. It was -20 to -30 all weekend long! Read the full article here.

The intention behind the travel spread I write for Pink (and for my blog in general) is to inspire exploration, whether that be in your own backyard or beyond. You won’t regret it.

Personally speaking, travel truly nurtures my soul and provides me with constant inspiration. I have also learned that travel with children proves not only to be fun, but such an amazing opportunity for little ones to learn.

Beyond sharing and writing about these experiences capturing them is a great way to look back and remember how much fun was had. If you are interested, I have  just posted more photos from the beautiful Waskesiu region on my Facebook page. Here is a sneak peek at one of the very lovable sled dogs from SunDogs.

Explorin’ my own digs – Saskatchewan

I am off on a new adventure, monthly. A great one at that. I am stoked to writing a monthly travel piece (and providing photography) for a great Saskatchewan publication, PINK (http://www.getcompass.ca/home/pink-magazine/latest-issue/.)

The articles will cover towns/cities and areas in Saskatchewan that have something unique to offer. I aim with these pieces not only to draw in newcomers to our great province, but to get people who already live here to explore it.

Hope you enjoy my journey, I am looking forward to it. And, if you have any suggestions on a destination I must visit,  I would love to hear from you!

Here is the first spread on a little town that I have a major crush on – Lumsden.

Heading in the right direction. Slowly but surely.

Well it looks like things are moving in the right direction. Toward Africa that is. I am thrilled to share that I have officially been invited on the volunteer mission to Uganda this November!

I already sense that this will be a life changing experience. Besides the fact that it will be a mission filled with learning, team building and sharing – it’s Africa, a place I have dreamed of visiting! There will be new food to eat, mosquitos to beat and new people to meet!

So, many thanks to all of you who read my story and shared it. I look forward to being able to share more stories of this amazing adventure!!
