This is a follow-up to my last post on the inaugural WestJet flight to Penticton that I got to be a guest for on October 26. I had a lot of fun and met a lot of very excited people. Mark Brett of the Penticton Western News took a few fun photos of me and interviewed me for the article above. I met some of the WestJet brass and representatives from Hester Creek winery. That last meeting was very handy indeed because, as it turns out, less than an hour’s flight in beautiful clear skies give a person room to dream big joy-filled dreams.
One of my winter projects this year is to follow-up on the wonderful dreams I so clearly envisioned in the highlighted article above. The photos gallery you’ve just scrolled through, might give you an idea of a future expansion for my company Calgary Food Tours Inc. I’ll keep you posted when that happens but until then, I think you’ll have a pretty good idea of where the inspiration for my dreams of food and wine tours in the South Okanagan came from. This is one of my favourite places in the world to savour it all.
For me, great food and wine – like I find when I travel in the South Okanagan of British Columbia – will always lead to joy.
