Elsewhere on the Web…

Singapore I’ve been writing elsewhere on the web these days, being very lax about keeping this blog up to date. Apologies to those of you who come here hoping to find me as prolific as I am on a platform like Instagram (@charlene.winfred). All of my longer pieces these days live on the Fujilove website. […]

Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef

Bryce Canyon National Park was the first proper post-jetlag, now-we’re-getting-sleep-and-have-balance hiking we did. We walked around for hours among the hoodoos and great towering cliffs, breathing deeply, lucky to be there at this point in time, enjoying the magnificence of the reserve.

Finding Zion

Utah, USA, November I was born in November, and as we did 2 years ago, Flemming and I celebrated my birthday by spending 2 weeks fully enjoying national parks – this time, all five of Utah’s.
