Ynot-Travel  was developed with an attitude of optimism – why not plan your own vacation, why not try new experiences, why not contribute to the community you are visiting, why not…you get the picture. With a shared desire  to meet new people and learn about other cultures, Jean and Barry embark on the next chapter of their lives. A focus on assisting business owners in attracting prospective customers, serving as the Canadian Connection by sharing what they have learned on  how to “see more and spend less”, has this fun-loving couple committed to travel while embracing ‘the local experience’.

Jean is Ynot-Travel’s travel writer, joint photographer, community manager and social media consultant. With an affection for blogging, photography, warm destinations and social media she is destined to work remotely as  a Canadian snowbird. As a Level 6 Trip Advisor Contributor with over 55,000 readers and a nominee of the 2014 Canadian Weblog awards Jean composes regular travel tips and destination reviews highlighting sites in North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe. Budget conscious travel planning and meeting new people has lead to a curiosity and respect for other cultures and a very large “bucket list” of travel destinations.




Barry is Ynot-Travel’s joint photographer, researcher, and guest services advocate. After dedicating thirty years to the same employer Barry is now pursuing career prospects that combine his love for travel, his insight into the travel experience and his ‘go with the flow’ philosophy. His passions include sports, sampling spirits worldwide (especially aged rum), and leisurely drives in his restored classic car.
