    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.
