There are some friends I've met traveling who I'll never forget 💕#worldelephantday

There's a special place in my heart for elephants, and on this #worldelephantday, I tip my hat to Sri Lanka, which has set aside parkland so that at least some of their elephants can still roam with relative freedom. #longliveelephants

This British Columbia Day, the whole province is basically one big bonfire. It's feeling rather apocalyptic

I drove nine hours--dodging moose, crawling through fog banks, and battling red-eye-flight fatigue--to see my first icebergs and they were sooooo worth it.

To me, this image evokes the many years I spent studying ballet, trying to learn to move through the world with some semblance of grace. Nature makes it look easy. (And I'm still kind of a klutz)

Klingon starship, am I right? (Am I? Maybe not. I've probably only watched three Star Trek episodes my whole life. But I remember them semi-fondly.)

A quieter moment in the Inuit community of Hopedale, where Boas Frieda was killing time, waiting for his Arctic char to dry in the sun.

Travelling with #CanadaC3 was such an unforgettable experience. I met so many inspiring people and saw a side of the country that evolved my understanding of what it means to be Canadian.
I've published a few images and thoughts on the trip at

When #canadac3 arrived at Red Bay, the fog was slowly peeling off Saddle Island, like something straight out of a fairytale. This was once the site of a major Basque whaling operation.

Who's the most handsome Newfoundlander on Signal Hill? No contest. This is Chief and he sure is a charmer.

One more from L'Anse aux Meadows, if I may, because it was just so photogenic. #canadac3

This one from L'Anse aux Meadows goes out to my new friend Fred Penner, who has provided the most joyful soundtrack to our #CanadaC3 adventure. I'm *this close* to getting a tattoo of one of his lyrics.
