- Grant Hurrle profile
Grant once flew 36 hours roundtrip, from Vancouver via San Francisco and Cincinnati to Zurich, to spend just 72 hours on the ground and be the best man at his friend’s wedding in Basel, Switzerland. He had just started a new job and hadn’t yet earned time off!
His first travel memory was a family train trip to Philadelphia at age 3, with all the excitement of sleeping in a berth, and walking between carriages of the moving train! One of Grant’s most treasured travel memories was witnessing the rainbow created by the full moon rising above Iguassu Falls in Brazil, unique to guests of the Orient Express Hotel das Cataratas, and only viewable for three or four days each month!
His most relaxing vacation, taken three times now, has been a week at the Waimea Plantation Cottages in Kauai. He describes it as a perfect place for someone who loves hiking, golf, snorkelling, and the independent, unfussed cottage lifestyle.
Grant enjoys books written by John Irving and Margaret Atwood. Being a bit of a film movie buff, he likes visiting www.metacritic.com, sometimes just to read the more scathing reviews of trashy movies!
