TRAVEL PRESENTATIONS AND SHOWS
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page”. Augustine of Hippo
Over four decades of exploring the globe has enabled me to develop and refine the “Art of Travel”. My experiences has led me to the discovery that one will get the most out of their travels through an openness to all the variations and similarities found on this planet. All that I have learnt and discovered through my travels, I share them with you thru my “travel talks”.
In the past 4 years, the Ottawa Public Libraries have invited me to share this knowledge and my travel tips thru their evening travel program. Stay tuned for the next presentations coming up in the fall of 2019.
I welcome you to come and visit me at the different shows listed below.
The Travel and Vacation Show scheduled for March 27 & 28, 2021 has been further postponed until March 26 & 27, 2022.
My past activities
I have participating in the Nunavut Tourism Summit in Iqaluit and I was so happy to be there during their Toonyk Tyme festival. I have been sending clients to Iqaluit to enjoy these festivities for years now and it was great to experience it first hand.
The Toonik Tyme Festival in Iqaluit is an annual celebration of Inuit traditions and return to spring.
I will be listed under “African and Polar expeditions” and I will be presenting a fun seminar on “Traveling to the extremes, Arctic or/and Antarctica”, Saturday at 10:45 a.m. in the Seminar room in the Main Hall.
Jan 24 to 27, 2019
New York is a vibrant city with great hospitality. On my first day, I met with my polar and adventure travel partners and participated in a series of very informative seminars at the trade show.
Saturday, I participated in a full day at the Polar Film Fest at the Explorer Club. I was mesmerized by the Arctic Wolves of Ellesmere Island, Faroe Islands and the Sami culture documentaries. It was a full day of great cinema and camaraderie.
Then on my last day, I returned to the show with a good friend and amazing wildlife photographer, Ejaz Khan. I am thrilled to announce that Ejaz will be joining me to Siberia in August.
