Word Travels - YUKON - A Story Tough To Swallow
YUKON - A Story Tough To Swallow
It's -30C in the "Great White North", but travel writers rarely judge a day by the weather. Robin hangs out with huskies and learns about dogsledding from a Yukon legend, and Julia heads out to a frozen lake to hook a story about ice-fishing. After braving the cold, both taste the gnarly truth about the legendary Sour Toe Cocktail - a drink served with a severed human toe!
