Lucas Aykroyd has faced a charging polar bear in northern Canada, flown in a helicopter over a volcano in Maui, and attended the Golden Globes red carpet arrivals. And he did it all for his job: travel writing. No other profession enables you to have as many adventures and to expose as many intriguing destinations to the world as travel writing does. In this presentation, he’ll explain how he forged a successful career writing for the Vancouver Sun, the Washington Post, and the Globe and Mail, and give concrete examples of how others can do the same.
