Bucket Listed with Esrock, a bi-weekly opinion column exclusive to CanGeoTravel.ca, will engage readers across travel, culture, personality, science and history. As a globally syndicated television host, award-winning travel journalist, popular speaker and author of the smash bestseller The Great Canadian Bucket List, Esrock is uniquely positioned to provide context, authority and his trademark wit to his musings on the future of Canadian tourism.
“One of Canada’s biggest personalities” [The Globe and Mail], “the Evel Knievel of Travel” [Canadian Living] and “King of the Bucket List” [Travel+Leisure] will explore everything from vaccine passports and global travel trends to Indigenous tourism, bucket-list activities, cultural stereotypes and the realities of travel in a post-COVID world.
“Canadian Geographic is staffed and followed by people with a deep passion for this country,” says Esrock. “It’s credibility and reputation across science, geography, exploration and tourism is second-to-none. The opportunity to use that incredible platform to celebrate Canada, speak to real issues and explore wild ideas is exhilarating.”
“Robin’s depth of experience and strong personality is uniquely credible, both in Canada and abroad. I expect his take on our post-pandemic future will be required reading for anyone interested in Canadian travel culture,” says Aaron Kylie, Associate Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Geographic and Canadian Geographic Travel.
