Lisa Kadane is a travel and lifestyle journalist based in Kelowna, British Columbia. She loves actively exploring the planet’s near and far corners, whether that means sea kayaking with her husband and two kids off of Mexico’s Isla Espiritu Santo, or trekking to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
After spending seven years as a lifestyle reporter at the Calgary Herald newspaper, Lisa embraced the freelance life in 2011. Her writing has been published in AFAR, AARP, Air Canada enRoute, American Way, BBC Travel, CNN Travel, Best Health, Today’s Parent, WestJet Magazine, The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, and others. In between travel assignments, Lisa writes about food, drinks, health, parenting and special needs (inspired by her son, who has autism), and applies her copywriting and blogging creativity to organizations such as Destination BC.
When she’s not travelling, writing or parenting, you’ll find Lisa hiking with her Brittany spaniel, skiing at a resort in the Okanagan Valley, or trip planning with her husband. Next up: Haida Gwaii, Amsterdam, Belgium, Iceland, The Bahamas.
