When we were named one of National Geographic Traveler Magazine’s “Travelers of the Year” for 2012, we were pretty excited. You may have seen me dancing a jig on the streets of Toronto. ;)
But when we were invited to fly down to Washington D.C. in February to meet some of the National Geographic editors and a few of the other recipients, our minds were blown. What an honour to be on a stage with these incredible people and to be inside the famous yellow square to boot.
We’re still pinching ourselves.
The video of the night has just been released. Grab the family along with a cup of coffee, glass of wine or juice box, settle in and you’ll see just how incredible a group of people our fellow nominees are.
We hope you’ll be as inspired as we were to keep on traveling!
