Normally when we travel for work, it can make for some long days in order to see and do as much as possible. However, last month I experience one of the longest, busiest days yet!
It started with a departure from Winnipeg, and connection in Toronto. I departed Toronto at 9pm, which would have been 1am in Iceland. During my international flight, I watched a movie and napped for a few hours. Read More >
If you are a music lover, you should definitely visit Nashville, TN. Especially now with our Winnipeg Jets playing there at least twice per season.
It was my third time visiting a few weeks ago, and cannot wait to go back. Read More >

When attending travel seminars, there is never enough time to explore the destination in which you are visiting. However, I always try and give myself at least one full day to explore the sites, pick up some souvenirs, and try the local cuisine.

Little did I know, crossing the Drake Passage on the 15th of November 2017, that I was coming upon my 7th Continent.
The capital, and most populous city of Argentina, with a population of about 2,891,000 in 2016, was bigger than I thought.
According to the Travel Industry Dictionary, an expedition cruise is defined as a cruise, typically aboard a smaller vessel, with an emphasis on the natural habitat of exotic destinations and responsible tourism. It also implies a cruise with on board experts in the ecology of the destination and a certain level of rigor, such as in Antarctic cruises. Read More >
Did you know that about 10% of land area on Earth is covered by glacial ice? Antarctica is the world’s largest ice sheet, and is so large that it even covers mountain ranges and a bunch of volcanoes. Yes, volcanoes… underneath the ice. So as the world’s fifth largest continent, and on average, the highest AND coldest out of the seven, Antarctica and its glaciers are a sight to see. Just don’t forget your long underwear! Read More >
