Author: Lori Sweet & Sylvio Roy


Lori and Sylvio are freelance travel writers based in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. They have both had a life-long passion for travel and for learning about other cultures, while travelling on and off the beaten path. Taking detours along the way has enriched their experiences immeasurably. Both enjoy writing and photography, so it was a natural fit to combine this with their love of travel. Lori was in education for 30 years. She was able to combine that with 14 years of part-time work as a Tour Director for a travel company that provides motor coach trips across North America. Upon retirement from teaching, she moved into the tour company office as a tour planner. She has kept a travel journal for over 30 years! Sylvio spent 25 years in the Canadian Airforce, travelling the world as a pilot. Now retired from the military, he spends his time as a commercial pilot. He also spent the last 5 years writing a regular column for Canadian Aviator magazine. They have both taken online and live travel writing workshops and are members of International Travel Writers and Photographers Alliance (ITWPA).
