On the way to the North Bay Outdoor Show
I have a soft spot for tourism and hospitality. When people think of their travels as one long romantic novel, they tend to become snobs and can't just enjoy the moment. We are lucky and don't have to travel to see the beauty of the outdoors, awesome beaches, great parties, amazing people, it's all right here in North Bay. I have worked serving tourists in different ways, from flipping burgers to promoting tourism itself. This city has endless possibilities and to it's inhabitants I say: It's your's, you pay to help maintain it, build it, grow it and now it's time to cherish it. Let's work to make this city the talk of the country and this show is the…
Hit the Trails in Town and Country—Snowmobiling in Timmins, Ontario
Timmins is Ontario’s snowmobiling mecca. I know, I know, this is just a bit biased considering I’ve lived here for 27 years now, but this is how I really feel.
