Gord Paynter passed away suddenly on April 16th, 2012. He will always be fondly remembered by his family and friends. This website will remain online as a tribute to his accomplishments.

Gord's travel stories have entertained and educated thousands of loyal readers, who encouraged Gord to combine them into one book.

Augmented by his wife Catherine's photographs (as well as some of his own!!) and including some stories never before printed - this collection can be enjoyed over and over again - and perhaps be an inspiration for would-be travellers.
