We’re all big dog-lovers here at Much Better Adventures so it’s fair to say this video of Bryan doing his best to keep up with his enthusiastic pup, Kaia, has become one of our favourites.

Video: Massive Glacier Collapse in Greenland

Ever wondered what a massive glacier collapse looked like? Wonder no more. A team from the Chasing Ice project were in Greenland when they caught the moment that an area of glacier the size of Manhattan disintegrated into the sea. Simply stunning.

It’s also inspired me to go and learn to surf!
