Over the past few years I have had a weekly travel column in the travel section of the Winnipeg Free Press every Saturday, and used to host hosted a weekly travel show on a Winnipeg radio station. I will be doing broadcasts again in the very near future on a podcast that is nearing launch time.

While a name like Pradinuk would not seem overly complicated to pronounced, when people see me in person or are introduced to me their first words are frequently, “Oh you’re that travel guy.” Hence the choice of http://www.thattravelguy.ca/.

I would have preferred a dot com but there seems to be another travel guy out there currently using it. My own background includes travel to 60 plus countries so far. As I talk to fellow travellers, as much as I have traveled, I realize my list of places I must still visit is very long compared to others. So many places…only so much time in a life to see it all.

For almost 30 years I operated a travel agency focusing mostly on leisure travel. I served on the national board of the Association of Canadian Travel Agents for years and was the National President for two years as well.
In this blog I will call issues as I see them and I look forward to your responses, whether you agree or not. We will talk about destinations, airline and tour operator policies, good and bad travel products you have used, and anything that has the connotation of travel.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to your feedback.

You can read my column every Saturday from wherever you are by going to http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/ then clicking on to link and then to the travel section. Most of the past columns and freelance stories I wrote for the paper are still online.
