I am beyond excited and truly honored to share that I was chosen as the Grand Prize winner for EPIK’s annual video competition! A great list. I took a Grand Canyon Helicopter tour and loved it. Las Vegas is one of my all-time favorite destinations. And Saint George, Utah? Well, my experiences there haven’t been so hot-had car trouble there more than once, but it is part of my backlog of memories and I still look back on the place with fondness.
The US and Canada give their border services people the constitutional power to search devices crossing the border. You have to comply with this, or they can hold you. They don’t have a broader power to demand every password for every purpose. So if you can honestly say, (and they cannot easily dispute in good faith) I have given you access to everything that’s on my devices,” then you are good to go.
The Caribbean is full of surprises. During our recent road trip through the Central American country of Belize, staff photographer Zach Stovall and I enjoyed a rare treat, thanks to Mark Howells, the Aussie owner of the Lamanai Outpost Lodge : We ate breakfast with a nearby Mennonite family. Belize has some 10,000 Mennonites — about 3 percent of the total population — who live in small communities all over the country. Defiantly nonviolent and anti-military, they left Europe in droves to escape religious persecution; Belize is one of about 65 countries where you’ll find them.
As directed, I locked up my door, and turned in straight away. It was a good plan but after about half an hour I had to rethink a few things. The problem was that the train was constantly speeding up then braking. Braking much harder than I had ever experienced on a train – this was the deceleration of a jet aircraft landing on a short run way. Surely trains would have seat belts if this were envisaged? I was okay as my berth was across the direction of travel, but everything else in the compartment was hitting me or something else as the driver braked. Even my bag was landing on my bed. I put the light back on and decided to just lay everything flat on the floor so nothing could fly away. With this done I wedged myself into the narrow bed and tried to drift off.
