FLY Travel Radio Episode 169: Canadian Road Trips, Active Ideas, & Nurturing Home, with Diana Ballon
Freelance travel writer Diana Ballon joins me on FLY Travel Radio this week. For someone who is used to jetting around the world quite frequently, she has handled, (and continues to handle), being within the Ontario border quite well. Diana has some great ideas for Canadian road trips, hidden gems within the province, active holidays and more. She also has some tips for how to make local trips and staycations more fun, and speaks about the importance of home life before and after we go away.

FLY Travel Radio Epside 168: Wandering With A Dromomaniac, with Nicole Lewis
Before meeting Nicole Lewis, I had no idea what a dromomaniac was. I had never even heard of this word. After speaking with her, it now makes complete sense why Wandering with a Dromomaniac is the name of her travel blog and Instagram profile. Nicole is a fellow Canadian living in the U.S. A wildlife vet by trade, she is an avid hiker, traveller, writer and adventure seeker in her non-working hours. All anyone has to do is tell her that she can't do something. Then just watch her go. Tune in to get some great ideas for stellar hikes around the US and to learn about her new book, 12 Months.

FLY Travel Radio Episode 167: Travel with Confidence - G Adventures, Gary Armstrong
Gary Armstrong, Global Purpose Specialist at G Adventures, stops by FLY to discuss their Travel with Confidence policy, and why we should book now, travel later. Gary reminds us of travel's philanthropic nature, the importance of visiting remote communities, and how even COVID can unite us. When the time comes to travel again, G is ready to keep you safe and healthy without any compromise to the authenticity of your adventure.

FLY Travel Radio Episode 166: Pee Cloths, Music and Mountains, with Anastasia Allison
I truly loved talking to Anastasia Allison. Anastasia is the Founder of Kula Cloth, an "antimicrobial pee cloth for anybody who squats when they pee" (kulacloth.com). Since my interview with Anastasia, I now have a Kula. I absolutely love it. This is a must for all active, outdoorsy women. In this interview, Anastasia generously shares her experiences about being bullied, shattering suffocating beliefs around work and money, the acceptance provided by the outdoors, and the importance of daily dancing. Anastasia is also a talented violinist who is part of The Musical Mountaineers, where the love of music and the mountains is experienced in the most unique way.
This is a conversation that really spoke to me as we all contemplate new chapters, what we are living for and how to be confident in our passions and dreams. There is much to learn from Anastasia Allison, and I truly wanted to jump through Zoom to go for a hike with her. Enjoy.

FLY Travel Radio Episode 164: Psychic Encounters, Esoteric Beliefs, and the Mountains
I do not hesitate to say that Cyrus Ryan is one of the most unique guests I have had on FLY. A seeker of the esoteric traditions of the East, Cyrus is the Director of the Northern School of Esoteric Wisdom. He is also the author of "Living on the Inner Edge: A Practical Esoteric Tale". As a travel lover, Cyrus shares his many adventures around the world, his affinity for the mountains, and his psychic encounters on the road. There is a reason why we feel at home in some countries more than others. I thoroughly enjoyed this time with Cyrus, and I hope to bring him back. I have more questions.....

FLY Travel Radio Episode 163: Diving, the Environment, and Saying Yes to Adventure, with Planetlenz
It was a great laugh to talk to Mike and Faustine of Planetlenz just before the holidays. This dynamic couple, hailing from Canada and France respectively, shed some insight into their life travelling around the world together as scuba instructors for the past 8 years. Tune in to learn about their new business venture (and some very creative clothing), their views on the environment, how their marriage survives small living spaces, and why you should always say yes to adventure!
