Come meet the talented and amazing regular guest contributors to Go, See, Write. I personally chose each of them after working with them on various projects and ideas and I am completely confident that they will each be adding immense value to the site.
Each of them has complete carte blanche to write about whatever they want here and each develop their own relationship with the readers of this site on their terms. I think you will love them, but you tell them what you think in the comments on their posts. They’ll love the feedback.
So, with no further ado, here are the contributors to Go, See, Write.
Nat and Tim:
Tim has a multitude of interests from sports cars to fly fishing to playing the ukulele. He moved to NY in the late 90′s to attend the French Culinary Institute after which he worked at some of the best restaurants in Ottawa before returning to NYC as the executive chef to the Consul General of Canada. It’s in this position that he found himself cooking for everyone from Norman Jewison to Joan Rivers and Elvis Costello. Tim has dedicated his life and career to cooking and the pursuit of honest food.
Nat is a Jane of all trades, she has worked as a florist in Ottawa, managed an ophthalmologist’s office in New York and opened a deli with Tim in Vancouver. She has a slight obsession with honey bees and usually has a camera or two on hand. As a professional photographer, Nat records their adventures with incredible pictures of everyday life and the extraordinary.
Together for a quarter of a century, they have indulged their passion for life and experience to the fullest, feeling invigorated & alive when traveling, cooking and exploring. They believe that everyone should get to know a culture by learning about the foods they eat and living like a local as much as possible.
Their blog, A Cook Not Mad is written for anyone with a lust for life and curiosity to experience the world.
Born and raised in Canada’s tiniest province, Trish always felt a need to see more than the sandbar of Prince Edward Island. In 2011, she took off to Australia for 6 months. After 4 months, a slap of reality, and a desperate lack of funds, Trish returned to Canada more determined than ever to keep going and figure out this ‘travel thing’ without blowing all her money on cheap wine.
Still a lover of wine, Trish now has since added handfuls of countries to her list of visited places. Her sense of humor and adventure make for funny posts that often come with a dose of reality and wit. Trish works as a fitness instructor when she’s home and also works in social media, editing, publishing, and VA work for Go, See, Write among other travel blogs.
Lavi left NYC to pursue travel blogging and world wandering in 2014. Since then, she’s lived in Spain working as an English language assistant, backpacked extensively in Europe, Southeast Asia, and Latin America.
From surfing along the beaches of Central America to trekking the mountains of Patagonia, Lavi loves all things adventure. A backpacker at heart, Lavi enjoys learning the local culture, tasting native foods, and capturing the views of landscapes and cities with her camera. She works in San Francisco in content writing and social media marketing when not exploring the globe.
Originally from Michigan, Steph peaced out in 2013 (much love to the Mitten State but those winters are INTENSE). She’s now a serial expat, choosing cities for their vibrant culture, amazing weather, and of course job opportunities. She’s lived in Bangkok, Rio de Janeiro, and Mexico City and loves immersing herself in the local culture while trying to learn the language (but usually failing).
When she’s not exploring her current hometown of Puebla, you can probably find her traveling somewhere in Latin America, Israel, or the USA. She’s currently studying for her master’s degree in counseling psychology, but spends her free time tracking down delicious vegetarian food (preferably via street vendors), hiking every possible trail, and hugging random dogs everywhere she finds them.
Born and raised in one of England’s most famous university cities, Cambridge, Kiara now lives in the medieval English town of Shrewsbury, famous for being the birthplace of Charles Darwin. Much as she loves her hometown, she satisfies her passion for travel by escaping as often as she can.
Aside from two stints of long-term travels to Southeast Asia and South America, using redundancy money from two separate jobs, Kiara fits all of her travels around her full-day day job in local government administration. When she’s not busy working on new material for Gallop Around The Globe in her spare time, she can usually be found hiking up mountains, getting lost in the cobblestone streets of her favourite cities, making friends with a furry feline or two, photographing cacti, or grazing on olives and cheese.
