About Travel the Prairies

How Travel the Prairies Came to Be

I love traveling almost as much as I love the Canadian prairies. That’s how Travel the Prairies came to be. I thought it was about time someone shared the many stories, secrets and beautiful things this part of the country has been keeping secret for so many years. My hope is that, after spending some time here, you’ll love and enjoy this part of Canada as much as I do.

While I was born and raised in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, I have spent much of my life traveling throughout Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. During that time, I have had the pleasure of seeing the most amazing things and meeting some of the most wonderful people you could ever hope to meet. That being said, I’ve also learned a lot about myself and the world around me. This blog is my way of inviting you along on this journey. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

About the Author Angie NikoleychukWestern Canada's Angie Nikoleychuk, Copywriter, Consultant & Strategist

I wasn’t always a writer. In fact, I hated English class, so believe me when I tell you that my writing career was a complete accident. I was bored. I wasn’t a big fan of English class or writing, but I did miss doing research and creating reports. So, I started writing and publishing articles online.

Not long after I started, I started getting paid for my work, and before I knew it, I had given up my job at the cabinet door manufacturing plant to pursue my writing full time. Today, I’m a senior copywriter, marketing strategist and consultant at Angie’s Copywriting for a number of companies ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500s. I specialize in content marketing strategies and content optimization based on behavioural analysis.

When I’m not working in the marketing and advertising industry, I enjoy music (I’ve been a professional oboist, clinician & instructor for 20 years.) and spending time with my son. Together, we spend hours geocaching, hiking, painting, photography, crafting, home reno/decor and pretty much anything that lets us learn something or get creative.

“Whether you’re moving to Western Canada, traveling through the area, or would just like to explore the Canadian Prairies from the comfort of your own home, enjoy the blog and happy travels.”
