I focus my travel stories on health and wellness; outdoor adventure, especially cycling and hiking; island escapes; food and wine; family trips; and weekend getaways. My stories have appeared in many major North American publications, including besthealthmag.ca, Canadian Cycling Magazine, City Parent, Daily Hive, Empty Nest, familyvacationcritic.com, Forever Young, The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, Travel Life Magazine and West Jet Magazine.
I get how nature can feel like a religious experience. Cycling over five days and about 300 kms — along boardwalks, next to sand dunes, though a pine forest and alongside ocean cliffs certainly did feel like a transcendent experience.
“This land is your land” is booming on the car stereo as we cross the Peace Bridge. The sun is sparkling off Lake Erie on our right, the sky grey, the trees naked, and sadly green grass with only patches of snow.
