Backstage Traveler is intrigued by what is going on beyond the surface. I will try to bring you entertaining anecdotes and reviews that explore some aspect of a travel destination usually passed over by guide books and magazines. 

I am based in Montreal, so many stories involve locations here. Recent travels have also taken us to other destinations around the province of Quebec, and farther afield to Vancouver, Florida, California, Oregon, Alaska, Mexico, China, Barbados, and other islands in the Caribbean.

All reviews are based on personal experience, and no stock photographs are ever used, only those taken personally. 

Please feel free to send your comments or suggestions for future posts to backstagetraveler@gmail.com or on twitter @backstagetravel.

Hope you enjoy your trip!
