Although more at home in a city—whether in Mexico, France or the U.S., all countries where she has lived—the Ottawa, Ontario-based Simpkins sometimes escapes to the jungle, roaming through those in Laos, Guyana, Peru and now Brazil. She covers travel and culture for Toronto’s Globe and Mail, Fodor’s Travel Guides and other publications. “Visiting another country, seeing how different cultures live, fascinates me,” says Simpkins, “but travel also makes me appreciate what I have at home.”

 

Quote/Unquote

“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
