I loved my experience traveling and filming for the TV travel series, Timeless Places, as well as Passport to Adventure and others. These days, I’m busy with a new series called OUTTA TOWN ADVENTURES. Season One is already airing in certain markets and a distributor is working on getting it out there far and wide.
OUTTA TOWN ADVENTURES TRAVEL TV SERIES
Outta Town Adventures travels both near and far to discover the best adventures the destinations have to offer. Season 1 visits attractions from California to Rwanda, Switzerland, Iceland, Utah, Zambia, Mexico, The Grand Canyon, Georgia, (the Eastern European one,) Louisiana, Hawaii, Mauritius and Seychelles.
This TV series is dedicated to presenting history, culture and geography in a fun and positive way. It encourages people to explore this beautiful world – something that starts with simply getting out of town!
Season One includes California, Switzerland, Utah, Rwanda, Zambia, Seychelles, Mauritius, Reunion Island, Iceland, Wales, Louisiana, etc. Already in Season Two, I have filmed in Uzbekistan, China, Toronto, Turks and Caicos, The Grand Canyon in the USA, England, Scotland, the Netherlands, Guadalajara, Georgia (in Eastern Europe,) Florida and California, with upcoming trips in Indonesia and elsewhere.
TIMELESS PLACES TRAVEL TV SERIES
My first TV travel series where we shot all of the footage was Timeless Places, which followed a previous series we produced called Passport to Adventure. (Sometimes we used other footage in that series.) I co-produced both with my X-husband, Bob Connolly. (It’s a bonus to get a partner that shares your dream so you can live it together.) Between them, our programs were seen on Vision TV, Life Network (since 1997), Canadian Learning Television (since 1999) and CTV Travel (since 2002) and on various PBS stations. The program ran and re-ran over and over so many times we were getting complaints asking when we were going to release more shows! We found that it’s not that simple to travel and then rush back to the edit suite and make a quality production. We decided that terrific content would be king – not talking heads and hotel promotional videos.
Timeless Places would travel to the world’s most exciting, mystical and “timeless” destinations by air, train, cruise ship, sailboat, or horse cart!
Timeless Places visited locations where splendid and baffling archaeological wonders lie, from the great Pyramids of Egypt to the isolated enchantment of Easter Island. What happened to the ancient civilizations of the world that mysteriously disappeared? How were their amazing technologies lost in time? Are the countries of the Western and Eastern Hemispheres somehow connected by the similarities of their ancient history?
I was inspired to search the world over for the answers to some of these riddles. We would guide the armchair traveler to and around exotic locations such as Easter Island, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico, Egypt, Denmark, Cuba, Aruba, Singapore, Malaysia and Israel, with useful tips on how the viewers themselves can most easily explore them.
Along with hints on the best ways to get around to places that are off-the-beaten track, Timeless Places takes a closer look at the people and the history of a country, linking their past with their present, and highlighting the character traits that make that country unique and give it a special signature all its own.
Timeless Places: is a combination documentary/how-to travel show which gives alternative vacation ideas to viewers who will be awestruck by the mystery of the far-off lands unveiled.
It’s an adventure right from the start with a story-line that’s bound to leave you wondering…
For two years, I was “the Global Traveller” on the Global News at Noon, and have carved a successful career in the production of web video clips that are widely viewed.
