Welcome back to the monthly link-round up, lovelies. What have you been up to this July?

We’ve made our way finally across Canada and to Vancouver, where we’ll be much more settled for the next three months. The road trip was great, but I’m very much looking forward to this longer stay and all it’s going to bring with it (read: swing dancing, night markets, mountain hikes, island weekends, swaths of time to work on my novel, and lots of home cooking).

Plus, I’ll be sharing all the posts from our trek across Canada, so stay tuned for that.

And, on an only semi-related note: I have a few new client openings at the moment. If you’re looking for a content strategist, web consultant, or writer, let’s talk.

Now, links:

:: Let’s start with something brilliant.

:: A friend of mine has been BASE jumping in Africa and then Switzerland this month. His Instagram is fascinating.

:: Also fascinating: the vanishing rest stops of the American West.

:: And, even more fascinating: On Traveling Africa as a Black Woman

:: Speaking of race: The Privilege of False Hope

:: More real talk: Michelle Marks is dead, Brock Turner is a rapist, & men are still blaming literally every single thing but themselves for their crimes against humanity

:: Young people speak out about the UK vote to exit the EU.

:: I’ve been reading a lot this year. One of my favorites so far? Ready Player One. Another? The Passage.

:: Making empty restaurants into daytime co-working spaces? Smart.

:: Finally, something to make you laugh out loud: pets being weirdos while sleeping.

And, in case you missed them on the blog:

:: Ask a Local: What Should I Do/See/Eat in Nice, France?

:: Lake Bled in Photos

:: Ask A Local: What Should I Do/See/Hike in Schaffhausen, Switzerland?

I got hooked on Cronin’s The Passage too! I recently finished his third novel in the trilogy, City of Mirrors. What an awesome trilogy!

Right? I just re-read the first two and finished the third. Amazing.
