A delicious, enormous cinnamon bun—no joke, it was the size of my head—from a roadside bakery on the Klondike Highway, between Whitehorse and Dawson City. That’s my kind of road trip fare.

I love a good rant. This week I loved this one: Pam Mandel’s I Am Done Discussing These 10 Things About Travel, Writing & the Web.

I know why Nathan Myers took a film crew with him to surf the north shore of Iceland; people weren’t going to believe him otherwise. Or else they’d think they were reading The Onion. His beautifully written story does NOT tempt me to join him unless it is afterward in a thermal bath drinking $15 beers.

I’ve been enjoying Vivian Gornick’s The Situation and the Story: The Art of the Personal Narrative,, which World Hum contributor Alison Stein Wellner recommended during our travel writing panel at the TBEX conference recently. It’s terrific.

I just returned from an expedition to a very remote part of Ethiopia where I had the privilege of photographing some of the most remote tribes on the planet.  Here’s a photo of me with a pair of Mursi warriors.

A greater honor than to make the “What we loved this week” list on WH, I can not think of. Thank you.

Jim- thanks for reminding me to order that Vivian Gornick book. Made a note to myself after your panel.

What is the name of the bakery between Whitehorse and Dawson City, and where is it?
