7 Reasons to Own an RV
A Recreational Vehicle (RV) is essentially a little "home" away from home on wheels. Many people use RVs for camping and long-distance road trips. They are popular because they make traveling more convenient with many added perks and amenities. For example, motorhomes often come with TVs, basic household appliances, a place to cook and eat, and fairly comfortable sleeping quarters. In short, here are the biggest reasons you should consider buying (or at least renting) an RV for traveling.
The Strength Of A Nation With A Beat
The beating of the drum is the first thing I hear. At first, it starts out slow, like a heartbeat…thump, thump…thump, thump. Then the beat speeds up and my heart tries to find the rhythm. But the beat is much faster, like excitement building. One voice begins the song. There are no words, just a melodic vocal sound, like one eagle calling to another. Then the other voices join in and it sounds like a harmonized war cry. The smell of sage and sweetgrass is in the air and I watch the dancers form a line at the East Gate. Long dark hair blows in the breeze and eagle feathers ruffle. Then the chuffing sound of moccasins gliding over the grass in perfect rhythm with the drum tells me that these are my people and I am where I belong.

Some notable London tube stations
To be strictly accurate, the word “tube” should only apply to those lines that run through bored tunnels, as opposed to lines that run closer to the surface and were originally built by the “cut and cover” method. However, the term “The Tube” is now used generally to cover all of the London Underground system.
My Brother Sent Me Sightseeing to a Toxic Lake
A couple months ago, while I sat at our Cabin surrounded by four feet of snow, my brother and his wife sent a picture of a beautiful beach they visited in California, where they live for six months as snowbirds. They had driven to Salton Sea Lake about an hour from their home in Desert Sands. It looked beautiful and alluring. I desired to be there. So as my husband and I started planning for our pilgrimage to warmer weather, I included this destination on our itinerary.
Dear Chronic Illness, You Won't Stop Me Travelling

The Waves at Waimea
The thunderous waves beat on the shore with such intensity you would've thought they were trying to cause physical harm to the sand. The shore break was intimidating to even those who could swim really well, with it waves that reached up as if to try and grab the clouds before crashing back down again. I stood as the foamy waterline, as wave after wave rushed across the sand and covered my feet. Looking out past the waves on the shoreline the ocean seemed so calm, still almost with only slight bubbling ripples to disturb that stillness. It made me question where the force behind the waves was coming from. It was as if some invisible giant were out standing in the water trying to splash everyone on the dry beach, just as a little child would in a pool trying to splash his siblings. Very few people were out swimming around past the waves' deadly yet inviting grip. It took a lot of focus and even more exertion to get out there; I had never done it yet, but was a fair swimmer and intended to try one of these trips.

Episode 003: Home
What is a home and what is home? This word is very intriguing and has no real meaning as everyone you ask will say something different but I believe that a home is much more just a 4 walls a roof. I’m an architect and of course I think that way right! Well yes although I design homes for a living and I am very excited with each new project I get I wonder what the deeper meaning is behind the 4 letters. We all know that a home is where the heart is, but what does that even mean? How can a home be both a place and a feeling? Can home be a person? These are the types of a questions that fascinate me during my every day job and I would like to take a dive into what is a home.
Visiting the Ghost Forest: Exploring Golden Ears Provincial Park
A horse splashed along the beach There were three of them, clustered together at one end of the lake next to the hydroelectric dam. Water churned and splashed around the hooves of the white horse as it playfully kicked, stray beads leaping up to cling to the animal’s skin.
The River, Rocks and a Riddle

Hitchhiking: Part 2. Summer 1983 From 2625 Jerseyville road west, to C.H. Bray elementary school, Ancaster On. Yes, by the following summer, hitch hiking along Jerseyville road, was well established by ‘me’ and myself alone. I never, ever, saw anyone else hitch hiking on the road. Saw a few people walking, or riding bikes though. One of the few people I’d often see walking along the road was Richard Klimowski. He was the guy that if you’d honk at him driving by, he’d stop walking, grin and point at you as you’d drive past. His finger following your car. Always made me laugh as a passenger...still does, just thinking about it! He romantically, brought my mother a hand picked bouquet of flowers one early summer’s eve...sweet, but he knew damn well my mother was married.
Uccello di Firenze
My mother and I had planned to visit Italy since the early 2000s when I was only a teenager. We were living in a small agricultural town in California at the time. She would tell me stories about our Italian heritage and how she was born in New York. Every so often, between that point in time and the fortuitous moment we finally found ourselves in Italy in 2017, I would think about this far-off place and it seemed other-worldly to me. As if part of me assumed it did not really exist. I wrote a report about Italy in 4th grade. So it must exist. I had seen old movies filmed there. Hollywood wouldn’t lie to me. I spent two semesters in college learning the language. Surely, if the language existed, then people on cobblestone paths were actually ordering “un caffè e un biscotto” in the morning on their way to work at the Uffizi or Ponte Vecchio. In these moments of disbelief, I would shake it off and continue with whatever monotonous task was at hand.
Kolchak and Kodak
I got my first camera when I was a kid, and my first role model for a photographer was Kolchak: The Night Stalker. As far as I remember he always had his camera and recorder with him on his investigations as a newspaper reporter. He wasn't really a photographer, but he used his camera to take shots while researching amazing stories that were not always what they seemed. This appealed to me greatly at my young age.
