Welcome to Travel and Tourism: CGG3O1!


I'm your instructor, Mr. Jody McKinnon and I love to travel. Hopefully, you love to travel as well and that is why you have taken this geography course. 

Ever since I was a little boy, I have loved to learn about the world, and one of the best ways to learn about the world is through travel. This course will explore why, where and how people travel, as well as the sustainability of tourism. In addition, we will explore interrelationships and trends in tourism and finally, we will examine challenges that the tourism industry faces. Let's travel together!

To give you a better idea of how much I love to travel, take a look at this map that shows where I've been before.

 Don't worry if you haven't been anywhere yet - you're young and you have your whole life ahead of you to fill the map. Why not try seeing what your map looks like as of now? You can do this by visiting this website:
