Traveling Tales online travel magazine - articles, photos and stories from around the world by travel writers

It’s with heartfelt sadness that this announcement is posted on Traveling Tales. Earlier this week, Editor, Vic Foster, passed away in his sleep. Although he had been struggling with a number of health related issues over the last few years, his strong will and Irish tenacity had always kept him going. He never missed a deadline, even when in hospital. Nor did he ever turn down the opportunity to chat with his writers and fellow colleagues.

As well previous involvement with TMAC, Vic was one of the founding members of BC Association Of Travel Writers, an organization that provides mentorship and networking for both the veteran and aspiring travel journalist. He recently attended the association’s AGM and was regaling all with his feisty stories and anecdotes.

Vic was also publishing stories right up until his final day. Travel yarns from his cast of well versed writers were shared regularly with readers of the Van Net paper chain. The same stories were immediately posted here, for additional coverage. Quick turn around time from submission to exposure was always important to Vic –a task in today’s market that is rarely attainable. He had a consistent style that worked, not only for the writer, but also for his newspaper editors.

Vic had expressed wishes that Travel Tales continue in some capacity after he was gone. We had met with him on a number of occasions to amalgamate his business with ours, Travel Writers’ Tales, but unfortunately time ran out.

Here's to you Vic

Kind regards,
Jane Cassie & Margaret Deefholts,
Co-owners / editors of Travel Writers’ Tales
