Wander Weekly is a weekly post on what I’m consuming at the moment.
And if you’re wondering just how large that iceberg is…
Nature is crazy.
Happy Friday – it’s scorching hot, but I hope you enjoy the great outdoors this weekend, anyway.

“Under an arctic sky” from Chris burkard and sweatpants media
A few days ago, this film’s tour made a stop in D.C. The first two showings were sold out, but I snagged a ticket at 10:30pm the night before for the additional late showing, and I’m so glad I did.
Under an Arctic Sky is about a group of surfers, Chris included, who set out to find epic waves to surf off the northern coast of Iceland during the dead of winter. Daylight was scarce, and the country saw its worst storm in 25 years while they were there. I got cold just watching the film, but the incredible cinematography was worth it.
Also, did I mention it’s really frickin’ hot in D.C.? I was down to watch a film featuring lots of snow.
Even if you don’t know who Chris Burkard is, you’ve probably seen his amazing nature and adventure photos before. He’s also awesome in person and gave a Q&A / slideshow presentation after the film. I highly recommend checking it out if you’re in any of the tour’supcoming cities.
Can’t make it to the tour? The music in the film is pretty great, too:
“Young Blood” by Noah Kahan
The second verse of this song starts out, “So when you’re mad for no reason /
At everything at once,” so yeah, I find it relatable.
The acoustic version is also killer.
Also, as someone who uses “hehe” as a frequent text response, this article made me feel like a loser. Doesn’t mean I’ll stop, though.
(Thanks to GNI for these.)
