The travel bug hit at seventeen when, with a lawyer's letter for permission to travel under age, Gregory left to explore Mexico using local transit. Later adventures included a ship to Europe, then joining an overland bus group travelling from London to Kathmandu through Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India (including staying on the houseboats in Kashmir), Nepal (New Years Eve dinner in the King's palace in Kathmandu), Thailand, Indonesia (seeing by air, his favourite children's book story island of Krakatoa), Australia on a work permit, visiting every state there by bus including Tasmania (except Western Australia), Hong Kong, and later trips to Ecuador, Peru (down the coast by local bus), Cuba, and a dozen Caribbean Islands.
Former antique car restorer. In the 1980's, worked with his Canadian Industrialist great-uncle Percy Bishop in preliminary designs for an all Canadian car using interchangeable body panels & doors as cost saving devices. Mr. Bishop had previously imported the Austin car agency into Canada in Toronto to sell small cars. At that time, people were not interested in them, and the effort failed. The new vehicle venture was to use his manufacturing connections with Massey Harris.
Our life is like grass. It blooms and flourishes. Then the wind blows on it, and it is gone. Never to be seen again.
My father documented WW 2 with his 35 mm twin lens reflex camera, and passed those "two extra eyes" to me at ten when he gave me my first camera, and then at twelve: a Super 8 movie camera. Writing - storytelling is a natural extension of that.
