Featured Contributors

HANS TAMMEMAGI

Hans’ writing is eclectic including travel (ecotourism, soft adventure,

history), Native culture and environment. He has penned 10 books (one

national best seller) and his articles appear in newspapers and magazines

across North America. As a member of the Society of Environmental

Journalists and former adjunct professor in environmental sciences at

Brock and Victoria universities, he has a strong affinity for nature and the

environment around us. He enjoys photography, kayaking and playing

disc golf in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia where he lives with his

wife and two cats.

LOLA AUGUSTINE BROWN

Lola Augustine Brown is a freelance writer who is based in rural Nova

Scotia, where she lives with her husband, three kids, two dogs, and 12

chickens. Lola loves to travel both with her family and without, having just

returned home from a family trip to London and looking very much forward

to her next solo trip, to Anguilla. Travelling to Japan was a definite career

highlight for Lola, and she loved seeing how inclusive the culture was to

children and families. She hopes to return some day and enroll herself in

ninja school, with or without her brood.

MELANIE CHAMBERS

Melanie’s 16 years travelling to more than 40 countries has produced

adventure stories for newspapers and magazines including Outside

Magazine, Canadian Geographical, The Toronto Star, Canadian Cycling,

and Mountain Life. Conducting writing workshops around the globe, her

favourite was on board a cruise ship in Iceland. Locally, she’s conducted

writing workshops at the Alice Munro’s Writers and Readers Festival and

Western University’s Homecoming. When at home, she teaches food and

travel writing to Western undergraduates. From chasing elk in Italy to

eating a 15-course tasting menu in Lima, Peru, Melanie adores travel.

MONICA KAHINDO

Born and raised in Uganda, Monica Kahindo caught the travel bug early

and started off exploring her immediate region, East Africa. She is slowly

making her way through Africa – having visited Cameroon, Kenya, Namibia,

Rwanda, Tanzania and Zambia. She hopes to continue discovering what the

continent has to offer. Monica is also passionate about wine and is taking

sommelier courses at George Brown’s culinary institute in Toronto. In

Cameroon, she delivered wine appreciation workshops pairing Ontario

wines with Cameroonian cooking.
