Caros amigos Jeguiantes, pela primeira vez trazemos um post bilíngue por um simples motivo: Gostaríamos de prestar uma homenagem a nossos amigos de viagem ao Canadá, que, cada um à sua forma, tornou essa viagem muito especial. Em breve, traremos conteúdo produzido a partir desta deliciosa viagem, mas por hora apenas nossos agradecimentos.

First of all, keep in mind that we are not native and fluent English speakers, so forgive our mistakes, ok? We really would like to thank the Canadian Tourism Comission and Mr. Udo Simons (brazilian representative of CTC) for hosting this travel and give us this amazing oportunity to learn more of this amazing country with multicultural history and surprisingly kind people.

Thanks to Udo for the commitment and hard work to make our trip as good as it was, without any headaches that usually comes with travels of this magnitude. We are really thankful for the invite and trust in our work.

This was the Jeguiando’s first travel to Canada and was divided in 2 diferent trips between September 13-22, 2011.

1) Pre Tour – Montreal and Easter Townships, Quebéc. 14-18,2011.

2) GoMedia2011 – Edmonton, Alberta. 18-22,2011.

During the first part, I would say we just had fun, fun and a little bit of more fun. Lots of restaurants, awesome gastronomy and how about the wine? Just amazing! (hic).

At this moment, we met our travel mates. A very nice gang, made by people from Brazil, Canada, China and India. Now a short profile of our travelers.

  • Kishore and Smita Iyengar: A couple of travel and lifestyle writers from Mumbai, India. A very sweet couple who travel and write together. Both became very nice friends and, in fact, shared a lot of wisdom with Jana and me. Our talks were very important for we both understand all changes that we have made in our lives for the last two years. Dear reader, if your didn’t understand this, be sure… You are not alone. We’re talking about past lives.

  • Douglas “Doug” English, from London, Ontario: Funny isn’t it? A true original Canadian! Travel columnist of London Free Press and Toronto Sun. Very funny, patient and kind. Doug was in deed one of the most important persons in this travel. Always taking care of our group, this man is a truly Canadian pride. Wrote more than 20 articles about Canada last year, Doug made us feel more comfortable always teaching us a lot about Canadian culture and sharing some of the most hilarious travel histories we’ve ever heard. Awesome guy with a great sense of humor! By the way, where’s the booze?!

  • B.H. Kasinath, from Hyderabad, India. Senior Editor from the Decan Chronicle. Very funny guy! Kash was always around, smiling, making fun and talking with the group. Kash in fact was the great Bon Vivant of this group.

  • Márcio Nel Cimatti, from São Paulo, Brazil: An old friend, writer and photographer that runs www.ajanalelaranja.com is a pretty funny guy. Always trying to find something for his girls in Brazil (wife and daughter), Marcio have already traveled with us to Argentina on September 2010. Always carrying his camera and sharing nice histories, he went to Toronto after #GoMedia2011 and I’m pretty sure he’ll bring some great new content for his site on the next few days.

  • Zhang Jing 张静, from Beijing, China. Chief Editor TravelWeekly Asia, and Linlin Sun, from Guangzhou, China. Editor from Neweekly. Both very shy and always together! I think language was the major barrier between the girls and the group! Anyway, it was a real pleasure meet you both! By the way, Jegueton (the plush donkey) loved to take pictures with you both.

More than these awesome travelers, we were hosted by Ruby Roy and Isabelle Cyr on Montreal. Both local and responsible for showing us the city as real Montrealers knows it. Very informative and funny, never left us with unanswered questions!

The trip to Easter Townships was guided by Danie Béliveau, the P.R. for Eastern Townships. She took us for the most interesting places over this region, including Sutton and its winerys (hic, again).

Well that was the gang! We would like to thank you all for the great time we had, and please keep in touch. We are aware of the language barrier, but we can assure that nothing is bigger than the power of a will. 🙂

At the second part of the trip, we’ve met the rest of brazilian delegates to #GoMedia2011. Roberta Miranda, from São Paulo, Brazil. Director of Brazil Travel News and Cristina Massari, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Assistant Editor of O Globo, a major brazilian online newspaper.

These girls didn’t got the sweet part of the pre tour in Montreal, but at least Cristina took the pos tour to New Brunswick and I bet she’ll come back to Brazil with a lot of news to publish. 🙂

    Nice tribute – always great to take part in the pre and post-fam tours, to find out what others were doing. Perhaps this will inspire a piece about our post-fam to Luxury Alberta.

    • Erik disse:

      Crai,

      It was just great read your comment. By running a blog, my Wife Janaina and I are really trying to inspire other people to share their point of view and realize that the most important thing about traveling is just meet other people and cultures! Thanks for your kind words!

      Erik
