1. Island of the Sea Wolves

"Explore wild, wondrous Vancouver Island, where the ocean nurtures all life, from bald eagles who go fishing to sea wolves who swim in frigid waters."

I just learned of this new Netflix documentary which is set for release on October 11. The film looks like it has some incredible footage from our backyard. Footage was captured from all over Vancouver Island and the documentary is narrated by Canadian actor Will Arnett. 

Watch the trailer for Island of the Sea Wolves here, and add it to your Netflix watch list here.

3. Book of the Month - Lines on a Map: Unparalleled Adventures in Modern Exploration

Lines on a Map is a great read for anyone who enjoys travel writing and adventure stories.

With beautiful descriptions of the places the author has traveled to, Frank Wolf writes about his many incredible global adventures in a compelling and humorous way. 

"Two decades of adventure writing are captured in this entertaining and inspiring collection of travel journalism by renowned adventurer, writer, filmmaker and environmentalist Frank Wolf.

Lines on a Map is a compilation of Frank Wolf’s best work from the past two decades. Some of the adventures include: two friends on a cycling and volcano-climbing odyssey across Java, the world’s most populous island, in the world’s most populous Muslim country, Indonesia, in the wake of 9/11; a surreal private lunch with former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau during an 8000 km canoe journey across Canada; discovering the past and present on a 900 km hiking and kayaking journey from Skagway, Alaska, to Dawson City, Yukon; negotiating the cultural divide during a whitewater paddling expedition in Laos and Cambodia with Russian extreme kayakers; exploring the nature and politics of a multi-billion dollar pipeline in northern BC by hiking, biking and kayaking the GPS track of the proposed project route from the oil sands to the British Columbia coast.

Complete with dozens of colour photographs, Wolf weaves together humour, drama and local knowledge to transport readers to some of the outermost corners of the globe in an epic quest to celebrate the freedom to move, explore and be wild."
