Michael Law Bio

Travel Writer


Michael Law is a freelance travel writer and photographer who caught the travel bug at an early age. Doing a Rotary International exchange to Chennai, India as a student at the age of 16 helped set the stage for a life of travel.

Between degrees at the University of Manitoba he took a gap year to explore the world, and 10 years later, took another year off from work and life to again hit the road and see areas he missed the first time round, with his wife Lana Law.

In his personal life and as a writer, Michael has continued to travel regularly, visiting over 50 countries. His adventures are often planned around his passions: skiing, kiteboarding, hiking, camping, fishing, and other outdoor activities. Some of his most frequented destinations outside of Canada are the Dominican Republic, Colorado, Arizona, and North Carolina.

Michael is a member of SATW (Society of American Travel Writers), NASJA (North America Snowsports Journalists Association), and TMAC (Travel Media Association of Canada). He has lived in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario, Canada, where he currently resides. Each winter he heads out to see new places and revisit favorites.
