The Great Canadian Bucket List - One of a Kind Travel Experiences.
October 20th was a bucket list day for me as I was able to cross off an item on my bucket list. (yes, I have one. Don't you?) I was thrilled to do so because in agreeing to go to a book launch with a friend, I really didn't know who I was going to see. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the author doing the presentation not only looked familiar but is the co-host of one of my very favourite television travel programs, Word Travels!
Robin has released two books: Word Travels and The Great Canadian Bucket List - One of a Kind Travel Experiences. It is the latter book that Robin is promoting during his cross-country tour from BC to Ontario. He plans to continue the book tour next year in the east including the Maritime provinces. Both books are available at any of the venues during his speaking tour when you attend in person at the event. Major bookstores carry The Great Canadian Bucket List while Word Travels may be purchased at Amazon.com or in person while on his tour. If the opportunity to attend one of Robin's book launch stops comes your way, you must attend. It was the best book launches I've attended!
"Full of adventure, humour, photos and fun facts, The Great Canadian Bucket List is the definitive list of things to do in Canada before you die." (www.canadianbucketlist.com)
