Profile Information

Are you connected to the tourism/travel/hospitality industries or travel media in any way? If so, please specify how (kindly include any relevant company names/Web sites!).
I am a freelance Canadian writer and photographer based near Munich since 2004. My current regular gigs include WorldGuide, where I author its Tales from the Road adventure travel page, Look to the Stars, where I'm the international correspondent writing pieces on charitable acts by celebrities, and insightLMU ezine where I contribute to the academics and interesting people pages. Previously, I lived in Sao Paulo where I wrote two regular columns for Brazil's only bilingual newspaper, Sunday News. The columns were called Going Places, on South American travel, and Letters Home, a tongue-in-cheek look at culture-clash. I now reside in the foothills of the German Alps.
On which destinations & travel topics can you advise members especially well?
worldwide, soft adventure
What destinations are you most interested in learning about?
all the places I haven't been to yet

Ask anyone without a bicycle about the Pyrenees and you'll get, "It's the mountain range that divides France and Spain." Now ask where to stay and what to do. The answer is invariably, "I…

Tofo's Underwater Giants

LUNGING AND LURCHING past the shallow reef just beyond Mozambique's Tofo beach, our boat is transporting us out to Manta Reef. We are six divers all anxious to witness the enormous, elegant manta rays that glide around underwater like eagles soar across the sky, and our chances are good at this popular "cleaning station" with one of the largest populations of mantas in all the oceans. The cleaning station attracts all sorts of…

A Century of Drama Crowns the Titillations of Antiquity

“What we do in life echoes in eternity.” So says General Maximus in the Ridley Scott film Gladiator (2000). It’s a poignant thought, standing in Verona’s Arena, the largest, best preserved open-air amphitheatre in the world.

Two thousand years ago in this very place, men were battling for their lives, for glory and for the amusement of an audience. Staring down from the stone steps on a sultry midsummer afternoon, it’s easy to visualize the gruesome events, man against man,…
