It’s been 6 weeks since the last newsletter. I guess I wasn’t inspired… oh well, here’s the cool stuff that I came across recently.
Beau Miles — the most positive person in the world — is back with another adventure!
After walking 90km to work, this time he decided to paddle! What usually takes 75 minutes by car took four full days of mostly dragging, burning over 18,000 calories.
What was another commuting stunt turned out to be the hardest, most insightful four days of travel he has ever done.
And Beau Miles has a book out too! The Backyard Adventurer is about conscious experimentation with adventure, filled with new ideas on experimental learning, making meaning and inspiration out of tins of beans, bits of rubbish and elbow grease.
This is one man’s unique take on the world, how to go about life, and redefines and challenges what it means to go adventuring.
Canada Modern is a physical and digital archive of Canadian graphic design, with modernism (1960—1985) central to its glowing heart. There’s some pretty stuff in here!

Had this song on repeat the last few weeks. A perfect 80s/Toto inspired pop-rock song, love it. John Mayer’s new album ‘Sob Rock’ will be released July 16, so soundtrack for this summer is sorted.
