Canada, Dog Sledding

My career as a musher ended the day it began. I was in Canada’s Yukon, desperately trying to look the part. I had grown a beard especially for my trip to the northern wilderness, and was dressed in a plaid shirt and jeans, and my oldest, grimiest baseball cap. The dogs weren’t fooled. They could sniff out cheechako — a newbie — in an instant.

Athens: A city that charms its guests and stirs their emotions

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
