After spending a (short) week exploring northern Vancouver Island, I was enchanted. Not only did we manage to catch these places pre-season - and avoid both the high season costs and crowds - but we also enjoyed uncharacteristically stellar weather that the West Coast is simply not famous for. And less so in the spring.
From eating hunter-sized breakfasts at Cluxewe campgrounds and embarking a "hunt" of our own to try and find orcas, to engaging with Alert Bay's electic community and rich First Nations history and getting our feet wet at Little Huson Caves, we got to experience some of the best that BC has to offer.
Here's a little spread of my snaps in last month's Guidebook.

It's almost been a year since my return from Dharamsala, India, where I was working closely with the Central Tibetan Administration and Tibetan exiled community; but it wasn't all work and no play. Over the course of my three-month stay, I did manage to travel to various states in the north of the country and was priviledged to discover and report on India as I never imagined it to be.
From the iconic to the idyllic to the isolated, India's north is stunning - and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to share some of the images that I captured while there.

Home to 2.9 million "Porteños" (residents of Buenos Aires) and centered around a busy port, Argentina's federal capital can be overwhelming, even for the seasoned city-goer. But not far from the main hub, lie relaxing beaches, less-frequented wine bars, and a host of activities for the adrenaline-seeker and antique-buyer alike. So after your city tour, be sure to buy a Subte travel card - and be bothered to explore.
Con aproximadamente 2.9 habitantes en el capital y centrado por un puerto grande, parece que Buenos Aires nunca para. Pero cerca del centro de comercio, hay playas tranquilas, bodegas poco frequentados, y un montón de actividades para las que buscan deporte extremo hasta las que buscan antigüedades. Entonces, después de pasar por todos los sitios culturales adentro de la capital, compre una tarjeta Subte - y explore.
