Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil

So, yeah, we do take the occasional selfie. We feel like it’s excusable, owing to the cool locales and absence of duck lips. Here are ten of our favorites. 1. New Orleans, Louisiana, USA – September 9, 2012 2. Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine, USA – September 28, 2012 3. Montreal, Quebec, Canada – … Read more

Tera's Beer

It took us five empty-handed trips into neighborhood convenience stores to get the feeling that something was amiss. How hard can it be to find a six pack in a world class city like Vancouver?
