So whatever happened to German efficiency? If the overdue airport weren’t...

I carefully framed the iceberg over my left shoulder and snapped the perfect selfie. A few taps of my phone later, the image was soaring through cyberspace from my location in St John’s, Newfoundland, to my various social media channels and followers around the world.

The Fijian villages that require approval to enter

As sailors planning to spend a couple of months exploring Fiji’s outer islands, my family of three needed to be well-prepared.
