Sandra Phillips
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page" —St. Augustine

After her book, Smart Shopping Montreal, climbed onto the best seller list 37 years ago, Sandra was offered her own newspaper column, which ran for 15 years in the Montreal Gazette. She became a regular on TV news and talk radio. The corresponding website has achieved 3/4 million hits per month – just in one city.

Sandra is a native New Yorker with a Master’s degree in Art and Education. Her passion for learning and travel has taken her to 65 countries, all of the U.S. States and all the Canadian Provinces. During and after her adventures, she reports for travel media, online and on Instagram and has authored 34 travel guides.

Her best-selling guidebook, Drive I-95: Exit by Exit Info, Maps, History and Trivia (6 editions) won 4 National book awards. She has appeared in over 100 newspapers, TV stations, radio stations and web sites in the US and Canada. NBC-TV has interviewed her (and her husband Stan) about a reality TV show based on their adventures, and NPR aired them across the US.

Sandra is a member of the Travel Media Association of Canada.
