- Cheryl Green profile
One of Cheryl’s fondest travel memories was courtesy of Continental Airlines, and their legendary “Pub in the Sky”! A spur-of-the-moment officewide decision resulted in nearly the entire office being picked up by limo on a Friday afternoon and driven to YVR, where they were whisked away to Hawaii! The “Pub in the Sky” was located in the middle of the plane, where people gathered to enjoy a few drinks, smoke (!) and socialize. The group enjoyed a Saturday on the beach, and then right back to Vancouver on the Sunday morning. Talk about your jetsetters!
Cheryl will be the first to admit that she doesn’t have the greatest “sea legs”, easily succumbing to seasickness. On a trip to New Zealand’s Abel Tasman National Park, they decided to take a boating daytrip on what seemed at first to be very calm seafaring day. Unfortunately, the weather soon turned windy and stormy, and even on the top deck, waves were clearing the bow and hitting them in the face. The bottom line being that the relaxing boat trip turned into a five and a half hour hike back from the first possible stop!
Her experience with exotic animals ranges from riding them (an elephant in Chiang Mai, Thailand), to eating them (ostrich, crocodile, camel and more at The Carnivore Restaurant in Nairobi).
For Cheryl, it’s always been a fun and wonderful career path, working with friends all the way, from her first job scooping Baskin Robbins ice cream to corporate partner at Forbes Travel.
