The Travel Concierge

I was Globe Travel's first Travel Concierge. Each week for over two years, I scanned the map -- and mined my contacts -- to answer readers' trip questions. Some favourites:
"You wrote up Tembe Elephant Park in South Africa and we were so impressed that we visited the Park this past May. The experience was terrific. On our second night, Isilo, the monster elephant, broke through the electric fence and crashed by our tent snorting and huffing. Apparently elephant tusks are non-conductive to electricity so are not deterred by electric fences!"
