Update and Request from Afield HQ – Spring 2018

These are a few of my favorite things…

Even though it is snowing here in Boston preparations are underway for a few upcoming warm weather trips – one quick run to Dallas and then another not-so-quick run to Belize, where we are meeting up with the rest of our travel team to explore, hike, dive, point cameras at everything, and run up an ungodly bar bill wherever we go. Good times.

Meanwhile, in order to do more research on our upcoming destinations…

Dear World,

Here I am again, sitting at the old typing machine thinking that maybe I might have something to say after a long silence. Since my last post in August of 2016 a lot of our world has changed, and not necessarily for the better. Our environmental and political systems are on the brink, international friendliness is at an all time low, and frankly, people worldwide are getting really good at being greedy Pigs.

In an attempt to help bring back a little wonder and beauty to this weird world of ours, I am going to be posting more photos, stories, videos, and behind the scenes content here on Afield rather than wasting time wading into the cesspool that is social media. That being said, I will still post my daily photo to FacebookInstagram, Twitter, and Tumblr for those of you who are still using those sites, but my interaction will be limited.

Along with more content I will also be showing my progress on a book that I am working on (agonizing over) that I hope to have finished this fall. Lastly, I will have a portfolio page open soon where you can buy prints and help me feel like I am not wasting my time doing all of this work.

That is all I have for now, but in the meantime stay in touch, be cool to one another, and keep moving forward—–>

Sincerely,

Peter Molgaard

 

One of Those China Things

Those of us that live here in China and want to use western websites and online services have to deal with internet shortages, outages, and outrages on a pretty regular basis. Tonight I have been trying in vain to upload photos to this here site so I can keep my promise of giving you the weekly Monday goods, but now that it is ten minutes until midnight I am going to say screw it and try again tomorrow. If for some reason this problem persists you needn’t worry because we will be getting the hell out of town for the Chinese Spring Festival next week. I will be sure to post as much as I can from our sunny destination. Also, if you want to keep up with us in China as well as on the road be sure to follow Afield on Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter.

A New Year

 

LalbachBoysSM

It is 2016 all of a sudden and we’ve survived our first year in China. Recently, as in yesterday, I did a little self-assessment about what I’ve learned and done over the past year and then made a list of things that I would like to accomplish before we leave in a year or so. Since one of my goals for this year (as it seems to be every year) is to post more on this blog, I figured I would tell you all about it – sort of catching up, if you will. Also, I will pepper in a few new photos just in case this bulls__t bores you. Read more

A Cold Day in Dandong

Hushan Great Wall

A little while back when it was still booger-freezing cold here in Dalian we decided that it would be a good idea to go on a road trip to Dandong, a town about four and a half hours away and equally as cold. When we spoke to our man Lv about driving us there in the middle of the winter to have a look around he appeared puzzled and was quick to say that Dandong was more of a summer destination. However, after a little chiding and remembering that he gets overtime on the weekends he agreed to drive us up there. For those of you who have never heard of Dandong, which I might add is a satisfying word to say aloud, it is a city that lies on the Yalu River which separates Liaoning Province in China from The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or, as we know it, North Korea.
