Where the Polar Bears Roam


Where the Polar Bears RoamBy Bonnie Hinschberger I recently travelled to Churchill on the edge of Hudson Bay.  I am always mesmerized by nature and particularly enjoy observing animals in their natural habitat.  With the uncertainty of borders being open for the 2021 bear season, I had a rare opportunity to secure [...]

Memories of Uganda


Memories of Uganda By Bonnie Hinschberger The last tour I escorted was to Uganda, “the Pearl of Africa”. At the time I didn’t anticipate a global pandemic and didn’t realize this journey would be the last I would lead for a while. However, if you’ve ever travelled with me, you’ll know I try [...]

Coming Together in Times of Distancing  What the world needs now is for us all to come together while still respecting our social distancing.  I’ve always been an advocate of giving back to communities, both at home and when I travel.  Now, more than ever, it’s important to practice these genuine gestures of [...]

An African Adventure in Namibia


An African Adventure in Namibia I remember as a young child, gathering around the television on Sunday nights, together with my parents and siblings, to watch “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom”.  I was always fascinated and inquisitive to learn about the characteristics of each of the animal species.  My parents instilled in us a love of [...]
