Brenda is BGE on the Slow Travel Talk message board.

I was a slow traveller long before I knew about this website we call SlowTrav. I have always loved staying in a guest house, apartment or B&B when travelling, because it allows me the luxury of actually living somewhere for a short time, rather than staying in a hotel and feeling like I'm only visiting. I didn't know that this way of travelling actually had a name - Slow Travel!

I've been a member of SlowTrav since October 2003, learning as much as I can about where to go and how to get there, and then discovering what there is to do once I arrive! The wonderful members of this website deserve so much credit for encouraging me and supporting me while I developed the courage needed to travel to so many amazing places in the last few years ~ Paris, Florence, Rome, Venice, as well as Santarcangelo, Forli, Rimini and Ravenna in Emilia Romagna, Italy.

I've also loved spending much of my life exploring my own country, Canada. Here's a few of the areas of Canada that I've lived in and visited over the years.

  • Cape Breton Island and most of Nova Scotia
  • Victoria, Vancouver and other spectacular places in the beautiful province of British Columbia
  • nearly every corner of my province of Alberta, from Calgary to Grande Prairie, from Banff to Jasper
  • la belle Province de Quebec, from Montreal to Le Malbaie along the banks of the St. Lawrence River
  • Toronto, Guelph, Elora, Grand Valley and many other delightful locations in Ontario
  • Winnipeg, Brandon and most of the small farming communities in southern Manitoba
  • Saskatoon, Regina and Lloydminster and many other beautiful cities and towns in Saskatchewan

Trip Report

Trip Report 926: My Dream Trip to Italy and France: A long time in the incubation stage, a long time in coming ... I'm sure there were those among you who thought I'd never take this trip! 3 weeks in Italy and 1 week in France came together in the blink of an eye ~ my dream trip became a reality in April of 2005. This trip was made on the wings of others holding me up and helping me to fly on my own. For that, I am forever grateful.
