We spent the day today driving around the north shore of the upper reaches of the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick. For those of you who have heard of the Bay of Fundy, you’ll probably remember that it has the greatest tidal variations in the world. We were told by the ranger at the […]
Before we even left for Quebec, we faced some tough decisions. The centerpiece of our visit was a conference of the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA), a group of destination managers and tour operators focused on adventure tourism. Adventure travel is one of the fastest growing segments of travel, and the target customers are not […]
The bright blue Basilica of Notre Dame of Montreal is one of the most striking and beautiful churches we’ve seen in all our travels. It’s elaborate and beautiful decoration is reminiscent of such later gems as St. Matthias in Budapest and Notre Dame in Lyon.
I was prepared and determined. Knowing that I’d sample plenty while touring Marché Jean Talon, the vast farmers’ market of Montreal, I had just a little coffee and small bite for breakfast. As we headed out, I picked up the grocery bag I take with me on all our travels, then decidedly dropped it back […]
Let’s just list the things most people associate with Omaha: Omaha Steaks, Warren Buffet and his company Berkshire Hathaway, the College World Series. That’s three. Maybe, if you think about it, you’d also conjure up the Missouri River or the Union Pacific railroad, Joslyn Art Museum or Creighton University. We know a lot of travelers […]
A beautiful city best shows itself at twilight. The lamps and window lights come on just before the sky gives up its job of illuminating man’s creations.

Montreal can be a bit mysterious to the visitor from the United States. We hear rumors of separatists and wonder why anyone would split from Canada just as large pools of us are thinking of moving there. We imagine dividing lines between English and French speaking neighborhoods. And we reluctantly lapse into English after our […]
Travel Writers Radio, based in Melbourne, Australia, recently talked with Kris about our “Golden Hour” tour with Mr. Agung Rai of the ARMA Museum and Resort in Ubud, Bali. These were some of our first forays into recording interviews–and frogs. So have a listen and relive the beauty of Bali with us. Visit Travel Writers […]
No matter how worldly and well-traveled you are, there’s something about the good old American road trip that causes a thrill. We load up with music, hiking sticks, and a cooler, and hit the road, planning to stop wherever we want. But who hasn’t thought of exiting the freeway at some quirky monument, only to […]
I’d never seen a whale in person before. So, we took an updated open Zodiac type boat out on the frigid Saint Lawrence to see if we could remedy that situation. We weren’t disappointed. We had roughly 20 sightings of fin whales, who spouted, then arched their backs like this and dove again unto the […]
