The Land of Alex



Travels with Alex

By occasional request, a compendium of my travel tips. Featuring a special page on Aeroplan, plus my favourite travel web sites.




Books I love

I can only justify my book habit by passing along my books to friends. I have passed along enough wonderful reads that I now get regularly pressed for more recommendations. So, here is a starter book list, and I will continue to add to it.






Alexandra Samuel, Egghead

If you find my taste in novels and dog photographs insufficiently illuminating, you may want to visit my professional web site. That's the one that has all the serious stuff about my research and writing, plus the archive of my articles for the Vancouver Sun.
