Upcoming Events & Webinars!

Greetings from Koh Phangan!

The island has dried out and I was able to get out my first video of 2019! It's just a short note this week about our upcoming events and webinar:

As mentioned in the video:

More information about our Oakville brunch here

More information about our Mississauga dinner here

Both of these events are meant to be very casual, a chance to meet some other travellers, say hello to myself and Veronica, and talk about travel! I hope you'll join us should you have the chance.

Here's the replay from our January 10 Webinar about our upcoming tour of Japan. Gordon talks a bit about what makes Japanese culture so interesting, the flow and highlights of the tour, and answers some questions from members on the webinar.

Connection, Community, and Our Goal for You

Connection, Community, and Our Goal for You

Happy New Year!

I wanted to start the new year with a short message about community and connection, and tell you about the goal we have for you here at Wheel & Anchor.

I was blessed to get to spend some time catching up with old friends and family over the holidays, and I was asked a few times why I started this travel community and what we plan to do with all these travellers who've joined.

Croatian dishes and desserts you must try at least once in your life

It goes without saying, it’s best to savor them while exploring the wonderful destinations in Croatia. Travelling across this melting pot of cultures will give you a taste of Croatia's highly diverse and well-preserved culinary traditions.

Whether you’re going on a gastronomic adventure this side of the Adriatic or are merely curious about the culinary specialties of the Croats, there are several tasty dishes and delicious desserts that will nourish your journey.

Greetings from Thailand for my final update of 2018!

Every year around this time, a few of my friends and I call or message each other and ask some variation of these questions as we consider the year that was and the year ahead:

What from last year will you bring into this one?
What will you leave behind?
And what do you plan on doing more of in the year ahead?

It's been an adventure starting Wheel & Anchor this year, and I can't wait to share the exciting things we have coming up in 2019. I'm deeply grateful to all who have helped me start, grow, and maintain this wonderful community of travellers.
