Travel blogger Gary Arndt was recently in the Yukon, the westermost of Canada’s three federal territories. While in its capital of Whitehouse, Gary was able to watch part of The Quest, a 1000 mile international dog sledding race that begins in Whitehorse and ends in Fairbanks, Alaska. The race starts on schedule regardless of weather and lasts anywhere from 10 to 16 days – until the final dog team arrives at the finish line.

Gary also had the chance to try dog sledding himself (“an experience to remember” he said), and has shared some of his photos with the Hipmunk below. For his full photoset, see here.

Not your everyday travel photo: dogs on motorbikes

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads

A weekly hashtag called FriFotos has emerged on Twitter, started by Jonathan Epstein as a way to share themed photos to a group of curious travelers. I don’t always participate, but this week’s theme is dogs, and I wanted to share my not-so-everyday photos of dogs on the road. Literally:

While I was trying to get a photo of the first dog, he turned to look at me with pure disdain, as if to say “What? You find this interesting? Please.” And it’s true: the amount of things and animals and people that Thais can fit on one tiny motorbike is staggering. 

Oh and by the way? They drive cars too:
