I have this belief that when you walk in public, you should walk as if you’re driving by walking in “lanes”. Slow walkers to one side with a passing lane to the right (at least in North America).

Posts by: Bryan MyersI’m a Canadian journalist from Oakville, Ontario which is a suburb of Toronto. My news career started halfway across the country in a small town on the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan where I covered everything from city hall to minor hockey to bull riding.

We’re asked to forfeit our valuables before a black sack is placed over our heads and we’re led to a tiny cell at the end of a dank hallway. The cell door creaks shut and we remove the sacks. When our eyes adjust we can see we’re on the wrong side of a locked jail...Continue reading
We ate our first Icelandic hot dog at Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, which literally translates to ‘the best hot dog in town’. Throughout the week we also sampled hot dogs from a tourist stop on the south coast and from a gas station in the middle of nowhere, and the quality is pretty much uniform. While...Continue reading
