“One of the greatest feelings in life is the conviction that you have lived the life you wanted to live-with the rough and the smooth, the good and the bad-but yours, shaped by your own choices, and not someone else’s.” – Michael Ignatieff

“A complete stranger has the capacity to alter the life of another irrevocably. This domino effect has the capacity to change the course of an entire world. That is what life is; a chain reaction of individuals colliding with others and influencing their lives without realizing it. A decision that seems miniscule to you, may be monumental to the fate of the world.” – J.D. Stroube

Nahanni National Park Reserve

Nahanni National Park Reserve

In 1978, Nahanni National Park Reserve appeared on the fist list of World Heritage sites.

One of Nahanni’s virtues – and one of its drawbacks – is its remoteness. Almost everyone enters the park by chartered floatplane. These carters fly out of several regional communities, including Fort Simpson and Yellowknife; make sure the operators have a national park licence. You can go in for the day to Virginia Falls, where the South Nahanni River drops 91 meters.

“In the space between yes and no, there’s a lifetime. It’s the difference between the path you walk and the one you leave behind; it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; its the legroom for the lies you’ll tell yourself in the future.” – Jodi Picoult
