Hello and Welcome to Travel Talk Cafe.

My name is Gail and here’s a bit about myself…

I’ve been in the travel business since 1998, as a travel agent. I’ve done some travelling over the years, though not as much as I had planned. So that’s one of my goals, to see more places and do more things… take as many road trips as I can, and share a bit of the knowledge, facts, or whatever I feel is worth sharing, here on this site.
I live in a beautiful part of the world (at least I think so!), and hope to share as much as I can about my local area, Atlantic Canada.

Now I have a confession to get out of the way … I DO love All-Inclusive and beach vacations. That’s why you just might (ok, WILL) see me write about them. There are so many ways to enjoy travel. I like going to a resort to relax. Not having to cook or clean. I can be active or lazy, get out and see the area …or not. I personally like to see the countryside, meet some local people and get a feel for a place.

Where you won’t find me:

Backpacking through Asia. Well, backpacking through anywhere. That’s not to say I wouldn’t go on a nice walking or biking tour, or something even a little adventurous. But I’d show up with a plan, and likely something already booked.
I do like a good city stay. And I will pound the pavement checking things out, local places and touristy spots alike. I have children in sports, and this takes me on road-trips, with many hotel stays…

As for my career and background in the travel industry… it’s definitely had an impact on how I view the world and the people in it that are travelling. I have loved helping people realize their travel dreams, big and small. I’ve had a lot of great clients over the years… Of course there are some who shouldn’t leave the comfort of their own country… I’ll save those stories for another time and place…
