UNIStv (French television station in Canada) invited me and my friends to share a hiking, kayaking and canoeing adventure in Killarney Provincial Park in 2016.  This documentary is available on their website. Note: video is in French.

L’Arctique Canadien avec Carole Gobeil

Merci Christian Marcoux du Journal Perspective Vanier de partager ce que tu aurais appris à propos de voyager en Arctique qui a eu lieu à la bibliothèque de Vanier en Avril 2016.   L'Arctique avec Carole Gobeil

A world of sensations – Arctic

Carole was interviewed by Christiane Kirkland from the Manor Park Chronicle in March 2016.  She sure has captured my passion for the Arctic. Thanks Christiane. MP CHRONICLE - MAR 2016 - FINAL 8

Thank You!

I would like to extend a very special thank you to the following photographers who have a keen eye for capturing unforgettable moments during my travels:

  • Michelle Valberg, for my cover picture in Ilulissat, Greenland holding a mountain. 
  • Joanne Tremblay, for some fun shots and videos in the Canadian Arctic, NWT, Tanzania and Killarney. 
  • Gary Krosin, for my Siberia shots; and Sergey Dolya for Herard Island in Siberia.
  • Paulin Lafontaine, for the kayaking photo in the Arctic. 
  • Blachford Lodge, for their northern lights picture. 
  • Kenny Stainback, for the King penguin video in South Georgia. 
  • Derik Kyostia, of me and the group talking to the seal in Antarctica. 
  • André Ouellet, Morocco camels.  
  • Ejaz Khan, for the breathtaking photo of the wolf.
  • Alex Di Suvero, for my ship, aurora and full moon picture taken on my first Arctic expedition in 2005. We had a blast on that trip!

My heart goes out to an amazing photographer friend, Gerard, who left us July 2018. As a world traveler, he sure lived his life to the fullest. He is the driver, clicker and voice in my funky polar bear encounter in Churchill. I sure miss his daring sense of humour.
