I’m Tammy Burns, a writer, editor and clumsy adventuress with a lust for travel and a taste for more red wine than I should probably admit to. (Other addictions: overpriced lattes, documentaries about Mount Everest, and plotting how I can move to Reykjavik, Iceland.)
Home is Toronto, Canada, but I have a bit of a nomadic heart—I’m happiest when I’m living out of a suitcase and not entirely sure of where I’m headed next. And this blog is a bit of a mixed bag: part musings from the road, part ramblings about life behind an editor’s desk, and part everything in between. For me, searching for the best cocktails abroad and crafting the perfect pitch are equally important blog post topics.
Travel and travel writing isn’t just a hobby; it’s my job. I’m the global marketing manager for Urban Adventures, as well as a freelance writer who has been published in the Toronto Star, the Globe and Mail and the Hamilton Spectator newspapers, on websites such as EatDrinkTravel.com, blogTO.com and TheCircumference.org, and in magazines such as Taste & Travel, Travel + Escape and Dolce Vita. I have also appeared on CBC Radio, talking about why you should never venture out on a hike into the woods of Northern Ontario without a map, food supply or sufficient time to find your way back out before sundown (not that I was speaking from experience or anything).
Hope you stick around, find some things you like, and maybe even subscribe via one of those nifty buttons to the right. I promise to do my best to keep you entertained.
