Nov News 2021 with Lisa Niver & We Said Go Travel:

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Chanukah! I hope you are able to safely celebrate with family and friends. I wish you warmth, light, support and that all your dreams come true!

Last month, I shared how I won an award for technology reporting and had my first story in WIRED! This month, I was back in Vegas at the DEMA scuba show and started working on a social media challenge: 5 videos a day for 30 days! You can see my first tik tok dance above and my dad and his brother carving the turkey below:

I have more than 60 videos so far on Tiktok, Instagram Reels, Facebook Reels and YouTube Short Video! Please comment, like and share on your favorite platform! I appreciate all of your support. After the first 12 days, I had over 50,000 new views! I am going for 100k and then 1 million.

I have three articles from when I was in Vegas in Sept 2021 for IPW Travel Conference. You can read about my stay at the Venetian, the BrandUSA conference and all my fun from climbing walls, driving bulldozers and landing in the Grand Canyon by helicopter–17 videos of all my adventures in the playlist above:

Thank you IPW 2021 Resorts World Las Vegas

What happens in Vegas? EVERYTHING

After Vegas, I went hiking in Park City, Utah! It was GORGEOUS!

Thank you to Carolann and Macrae for celebrating my birthday with me in Toronto! We went hiking on Bruce’s Trail which was founded in 1967 just like me!
