2015 Gift Guide for the Traveller in Your Life

2015 Gift Guide |

It’s that time of year again. I don’t know how it’s late-November already. Seriously, how did that happen? Didn’t I just blink and it was (Canadian) Thanksgiving? Normally, I’m all up on Christmas shopping in September. This year, not so much. Procrastination is real.

Everyone but me that is. But someday that’ll change.
