Although I’ve yet to write about it (stay tuned – it’s coming soon), I’ll be leaving my little paradise of Mana Retreat this week. I have a few New Zealand adventures up my sleeve that I look forward to sharing with you as the plans firm up. In the meantime, please enjoy the latest and greatest articles of mine published – both online and in print.
Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean you can throw caution to the wind and spend as much as you wish. Budget Your Trip is a free online tool that puts some science into estimating, budgeting, and tracking your expenses for your next vacation.
There’s a lot to know – or rather to learn – about traveling the world. Whether the trip is a month long, a year long, or a lifetime – wending your way around the world requires some skill and a whole lot of knowledge if you want to travel – and perhaps blog about it – effectively. This post reviews two e-books that take you through the process, step by step.

When you and/or your employees travel for business, what is your policy towards insurance? If the company laptop is stolen or damaged, who pays for it? And if somebody is hospitalized, how does the bill get paid?
These are questions every business owner must consider when traveling for business. Travel insurance can be the solution. But in some cases, you may already have coverage and not know it.
This Ontario/Quebec-based glossy adventure magazine commissioned me to write a small “Daytripper” piece on LaFleche: an adventure playground with high ropes courses, massive zip lines to traverse, caves to explore, hikes to enjoy, and awesome scenery to soak in. You can check out the (free) online version of the magazine here (my piece is on page 10), or if you’re in Canada, pick up a hard copy on the shelves!
Profiles & Shout-Outs
Philly Bored-er Patrol has profiled me before, but this post involves an engaging write-up which argues that The Professional Hobo is “journalism”, despite the idea that a blog isn’t traditionally journalistic.
The article is well-written, engaging, and thought-provoking. It also demonstrates an in-depth knowledge of me, what I do, and my writing. I’m both flattered and honoured. Please do check it out.
