In April of 2008 I decided to set out on a rather unique SBI! adventure.
Instead of my usual journey to the realms of some third-world country, I would set out to visit some of the most amazing sites in the world SBI! sites. Actually, the people behind the sites.
Here's the "Trailer" to my SBI! adventure in Canada, a spin-off of my first SBI! video ;-)
I've been all around the world. I traveled for years. It's my passion. I've been to Antarctica, canoed down the Congo River, hiked the Andes I've seen the most incredible sights. And throughout my travels, I've always been interested first and foremost in the people.
So now my plan was to meet people like myself who share the same passion for SBI! as I do. Since starting off with SBI!, I've become part of this tight-knit and enthusiastic virtual community. And truthfully, as a people person, I'm not that good of a virtual Samaritan because it's all so virtual for me.
I also needed to get a bit more reality as to what SiteSell, the company behind SBI!, looks like. I think that it's something many SBI!ers would like to know. To me, it all seems so vague. SiteSell and SBI! usually equal a guru called Dr. Ken Evoy. But I know that there are so many devoted people taking part. Who are they?
So, after five years of SBI!-ing, I decided to set off and come face to face with some of the people of Site Build It!, better known as SBI!ers.
Where would I go?
With thousands of SBI!ers scattered all around the world, I just had to spin the globe and point my finger anywhere it landed. Yet, the moment I came up with the idea, I knew where I was going.
Along with visiting other SBI!ers, I was also eager to meet Ken, who is a Canadian and lives in Montreal. Over the years, Ken has become a virtual friend and guru to me and to so many others.
I turned to Theresa from SiteSell (you'll meet her later on in the story) and asked for a list of SBI!ers in the Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal area. She sent me a bunch of names and I started contacting people and trying to piece the puzzle.
I don't usually make many plans when I set off to travel, but this time I had no choice (although I did leave enough room for spontaneity). There were quite a few changes and ultimately this is what the route looked like:
On the flight from Tel-Aviv to Toronto I wrote down my very first thoughts. The prologue of this adventure, so to speak. Although I've put links below to each of the days, I suggest you start reading the story from what I wrote while on Air Canada flight 085:
