Jody Robbins is a Calgary-based freelance travel and lifestyles writer. When not travelling with her precocious children (one daughter, one husband and one dog), she can usually be found hiking or snowboarding in the Alberta Rockies. Who are we kidding? She's most likely indulging in après-ski right now! Having a knack for learning things the hard way, she’s keen to share her experiences on her blog Travels with Baggage, so you can have better ones.
