I’ve had the travel bug since I was about the size of a carry-on. My parents are to blame. They didn’t sit still very much and I tagged along wherever they went. Sometimes we’d go far, sometimes it was just a car ride up the southern shore to the cabin. It didn’t matter where, really. What they were looking for then, and what I now constantly crave is simple: a change of scene. New stuff to look at, new people to chat with, new roads to manoeuvre or new spaces to wander. A chance to be a new land explorer, a Terra Nova Rover.
I have the great fortune to work as a multimedia journalist with CBC. I've been a documentary storyteller for one of Newfoundland and Labrador's most beloved TV programs, CBC's Land & Sea and I'm the current host of CBC Radio's longest running, current affairs radio show, The Broadcast. When my job isn't keeping me on the hop in nooks and crannies all over my home province, I'm always planning a holiday or quick jaunt to discover some foreign land and culture.
From Makkovik to Miami, from Embree to Ecuador, from New Perlican to New Zealand and lots of places in between, the best experiences of my life have been travelling and I know there are lots of you who share that feeling. So, come on, let’s unfold a map and have a chat about where you’ve been or where you’d like to go, what you’ve seen or your best advice on how to get there. Pack your bag full of stories and memories and get on board.
