We'd like to thank our sponsors for providing the following during the shooting of Word Travels. 


Air New Zealand

Special thanks to Air New Zealand for getting us to and from the Land of the Long White Cloud!   Air New Zealand now offers a wonderful direct flight from Vancouver to Auckland, so exploring one of the world's most beautiful countries has never been easier. 
Air North
 Special thanks to Air North for the helping us explore the wonders of the Great White North in the Yukon.  You've really got to appreciate a company that can land a plane on a frozen runway and still greet you with a smile and some hot coffee!  
Special thanks to Quebec-based Chlorophylle, who kitted Robin and Julia out with various stylish outdoor apparel.  Not only did we look great, their garments survived even the toughest of foreign laundry services!
Our friends at Keen Canada provided our hosts and crew with fabulous, lightweight yet heavy-duty shoes and sandals.  Robin and Julia only packed one pair of each and after 12 countries, they still look new! If you're curious, Robin wore a pair of Targhee II 's and Julia a pair Truckees.
 Ray Ban
 Special thanks to Luxotica for providing Robin and Julia with their smoking hot Ray-Ban sunglasses!
Special thanks to Sony Canada for providing electronic equipment to our hosts and crew. Robin and Julia used VAIO laptops, Cybershot digital cameras, as well as Sony memory sticks for backing everything up.   
 Special thanks to Sherpa Mountain Products for providing Robin and Julia with their backpacks.
