I am no Anthony Bourdain, but I have lived and traveled much of the world, every experience was exciting and wonderful...and then came the Arctic! 

The Arctic might as well be the moon – in all things, land and water. And the people there, people who are like me, Canadians and like me Indigenous, the people of the Arctic were as foreign to me as were Asians or Africans – from their languages to their life styles. They are simply and truly, awesome! 

The Canadian Arctic Aviation Tour 2017 invited me to be a part of their upcoming extravaganza. For this, I am eternally grateful as it has greatly enriched my life and, I hope and trust, those of many northerners.

The tour will be performing (starting next week) for several communities across the Arctic – communities that would otherwise never have the chance to witness the magic most Canadians have experienced in a spectacular air show. 

And the best thing is that there are no strings attached. The tour will be performing for the entertainment pleasure of Northern Canadians - simply for their pleasure. 

From my part, I have stories to share. The weather! The landscape! The adventure of getting in and out and about! And the best of all -  the people...the carvers, drummers, singers and hunters...the seamstresses, youth, Elders and the Newfoundlanders who have made the arctic their homes...

I have so much to share. Here I come...
