I have just added Articles and Anecdotes to my website. What exactly is it? There is more to a place than the photos we take. Articles and anecdotes will provide insights and commentary from myself and contributors on various places travelled to in the world.
The first article is titled Development at Gibsons Landing. During a recent visit to the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia, we had the opportunity to drop into an office and have a conversation with a woman from the Gibsons Defence Association. As has happened a major development is being planned for a largely unspoiled small town harbour.
It gave me pause to ponder what exactly is progress and who does it actually benefit. I share my viewpoint in Development In Gibsons Landing.
The second featured anecdote was submitted by Robyn Craig and Franklin Beckham. I reproduced an entry from their blog www.goingtoperu.wordpress.com They share their adventures of Venturing Into the Amazon. Their trip to Peru was much more adventurous then mine and I would recommend visiting their blog and reading some of the entries especially if you are planning a classic hiking journey.
