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.

 Reconnect with the world in The Islands of Tahiti

Located in the South Pacific, The Islands of Tahiti are just eight hours by air from California. Surrounded by pristine, crystal-clear blue waters, the 118 islands and atolls offer natural beauty, authentic island culture and unique French Polynesian style. The Islands of Tahiti are world-renowned for white-sand beaches, stunning turquoise lagoons and varied landscapes ranging from coral atolls to volcanic mountain peaks. Privacy comes naturally in The Islands of Tahiti and offers visitors the space to relax and reconnect and to be Embraced By Mana. Mana is the life force and spirit that connects all things in The Islands of Tahiti.
