Travel Life: Volunteering at Maui Nui Botanical Gardens

I’m really proud of the fall and winter issues of Travel Life. I got to edit some interesting articles by talented writers and I got to contribute one of my favourite pieces of 2016 to Pay It Forward, a column that explores voluntourism.

In February 2016, during a mountain biking trip to Maui, I chose a Wednesday morning and joined The Weed And Pot Club at Maui Nui Botanical Gardens. They meet each week and work at weeding and potting (as the name cheekily suggests). Dig In! Volunteer for a short-term opportunity, like gardening, when you visit Maui appeared in the fall issue.

I also wrote a little piece called Avant, Après and in Between about unique après ski destinations around the world. I haven’t been to all of them, but I think I might need to try fat biking in Gstaad next winter. ;)
