After ditching a career in international marketing, Calgary-based Jody Robbins now writes travel and lifestyle pieces for a variety of outlets including The Globe and Mail, MSN Travel, Avenue and Jody is a former competitive dancer and wherever she travels, she makes a point to groove with locals on and off the dance floor.

Must-pack item: Swiss Army knife—the one with scissors and a corkscrew.

Favourite travel memory: Escaping out a window by tying bed sheets together (so we could go to the disco), while vacationing in Greece as a 16-year-old with my Austrian pen pal and her parents.

Best travel advice: Check out blogs by lifestyle writers living in the destination you’re visiting and even try connecting with them on social media. You’ll get an insider’s glimpse into local hangouts.
