Three things Doug O’Neill cannot live without: his hiking boots, portable coffee mug and any kind of e-reader. O’Neill has held full-time positions at Canadian Living, Homemakers, TV Guide Canada and Toronto Life, and now, as a busy freelancer, he contributes to Canadian Traveller, Canadian Geographic Travel, BOLD magazine, WestJet, Explore Magazine, Ensemble, Ignite, Urban Guides Canada and many others. While O’Neill loves scribbling about city escapes –nature and the outdoors are his first passions. His favourite hikes so far: the 800-km Camino de Santiago across northern Spain, and a luxury heli-hiking adventure in the Cariboo Mountains, B.C. Doug is a member of the Adventure Travel Trade Association.
