In celebration of its 2014 Europe product launch, Trafalgar is sponsoring a three-city tour with New York Times best-selling author, Patricia Schultz. More than three million copies of her “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” book have been sold. “For Trafalgar, travel is all about the aspiration of discovering a new world and immersing oneself in local experiences around the globe, and Patricia is a fantastic champion for our brand and ambassador to the travel industry,” says Doug Patterson, president of Trafalgar Canada. The tour begins Oct. 3 in Calgary at the Martha Cohen Theatre, with further stops including Toronto’s Winter Garden Theatre on Oct. 8 and Montreal’s Ludger-Duvernay Theatre on Oct. 10.

During presentations, Schultz will share her favourite places to visit and personal travel stories, “from the humorous to the insightful to the truly inspiring. Following the presentation, guests can gather to have their books signed by Patricia and meet the best-selling author in person.” “I’ve discovered great things since my last Trafalgar events in Canada, so I come well-stocked with new stories and new destinations to talk about,” says Schultz. “Trafalgar’s events always promise a great mix of travellers new and old — we all share a passion for adventure and exploration, whether it’s a weekend of culture in Paris or exploring Machu Picchu.” (
