FLY Travel Radio Episode 170: 7+Years, 194 Countries, Nine to Go. No planes. With Thor Pedersen, Once Upon A Saga.
There are a handful of people who have travelled to every country in the world. There is only one person who is travelling to every country in the world without flying. This week on FLY Travel Radio, Thor Pedersen of Denmark shares his 7+ year journey of traveling through 194 countries and counting via bus, train, and every type of boat. This is not an adventure for the faint of heart. Thor discusses his gruelling schedule, daunting logistics, and minimal budget that has been his life since 2013. Thor is an ambassador for the Danish Red Cross which is a big part of this project, as well as his quest to spread awareness about the universal goodness across countries and cultures. COVID has kept Thor in Hong Kong for the last 14 months, where he is waiting to tackle his 9 remaining countries. You will not meet a nicer guy. I felt honoured to have spent an hour talking with him. Tune in to learn more about Once Upon a Saga.

FLY Travel Radio Episode 182: The Last Tourist (Film), with Writer and Director, Tyson Sadler
If you haven't seen The Last Tourist, you must. The film was written and directed by Tyson Sadler and executive produced by Bruce Poon Tip, Founder of G Adventures. I had the pleasure of discussing the film with Tyson in this interview. We spoke of the impact of over-tourism, improper animal tourism, and the importance of recognizing humanitarian issues when we travel. If we seek authentic and responsible experiences, there is so much good that travel can do for the world at large. This is a must see. Original broadcast on CIUT 89.5FM and www.ciut.fm.
FLY Travel Radio Episode 179: Dreamers Creative Writing Farm, with Kat and Ryan
When everyone else settled back into the routine of school and work after Labour Day, I went on a road trip to Grey Bruce County. We stumbled upon the most amazing Airbnb which turned out to be a 420 friendly accommodation (that means cannabis for some of you). Set in a magical, countryside location one hour south of Tobermory, Ontario this is a year-round haven for outdoor lovers, nature seekers, and those just wanting some peace. It also happens to be a writing retreat, with bunkies named after famous Canadian authors, and a must see secret garden. Wait until you hear about the goats....Original broadcast on CIUT 89.5FM and www.ciut.fm.
