Celebrate Earth Day by going out there and exploring! Clean up a little while your at it!

The Immortal Adventure (by KatieFielding)

I spent today recovering, organizing house, and getting ready to head back to work tomorrow. But already buzzing around in my head is my next big adventure! In June I’ll be returning to Iceland for two weeks, then heading to Austria, Slovakia, and Hungry for the first time. Any suggestions for those places are welcome!

The night the lights went out in Toronto, and we sat around eating Canadian candy bars and drinking bubbly. 

Love her easter egg hair, and this video.

Listening to podcasts really helped pass the time on the roadtrip this past week.  I even think it helped me stay more alert while driving by keeping my mind engaged, rather than lulling it to sleep like radio music might. 

A few of my favorites from this trip:

This America Life: A great episode titled “Tarried and Feathered”, especially the story about the small town gossip website Topix.  

The Moth Radio Hour:  Great oral story telling.  This story Millionaire Hot Seat will warm your heart. 

Dinner Party Download: Fun pop culture talk, with that intelligent slant you would expect from public radio. 

TED Radio Hour:  Brings TED talks to life on the radio with interviews with speakers.  They group talks into theme episodes to make a whole story out of several viewpoints.
