- Legal NomadsFounder, 2008 - present
Originally from Montreal, I quit my job as a lawyer to travel for what I thought was a year, and more than five years later I find myself working as a full-time food and travel writer and photographer. All of the writing recently culminated in my first book, the Food Traveler’s Handbook. Since I left my job in early 2008, I've been writing about my worldwide travel, transportation misadventures and delicious food on my site, Legal Nomads. I get the shakes when I go too long without eating sticky rice.
I've been a brand ambassador with G for over 5 years now, and this new partnership is a great fit for both companies but also for my readers.
Many of you ask if the G tours are too young for them, but say that National Geographic tours are beyond their price point. These new trips will be in the middle of both, accessible to more people but with the knowledge of the NatGeo Society behind them. And, at the gala yesterday, there was one grand prize winner who got a spot on the new trips: Legal Nomads reader Terrance won in a random drawing: https://instagram.com/p/8POh7GOI5T/ HAH!
They're announcing the tours on 15 December but their landing page is at the link with video intro is at the link.
Now, YYZ --> NRT --> BKK --> SOUP.
This year I reached out to the people close to me to ask then what books changed their lives, and then I read them one by one. I recently asked the same questions to my readers, and they replied with a broad and dizzyingly comprehensive list of books that affected them in different ways.
I put all of these books together in one list. If you are looking for further reading or simply for a look at what others find inspiring, you will find that and much more at the link.
The post talks about my symptoms and how I realized what the disease was, along with a similar mosquito virus called Chikungunya, and finally links to articles from 2015 about the current state of dengue worldwide.
With no disease available, this is an increasingly scary problem. :(
this fall, it is definitely on my mind. I will certainly take precautions,
but staying home from the area and the conference I'm speaking at seemed
too extreme. I realize the risks and I hope I can keep the mosquitoes at
bay. Sigh. Such a dreadful disease. Hoping Uruguay stays as dengue free as
possible despite your borders.
