About the BellaOnline Canadian Culture Editor
Monika R. Martyn
Monika R. Martyn is an intrepid writer who has embraced a nomadic lifestyle. She grew up in Austria, immigrated to Canada as a teen, and enjoyed living in Panama, Colombia, and Mexico.
To qualify as an editor of Canadian Culture, she has visited eight out of the ten provinces, one territory, and has driven at least two-thirds of Canada’s massive 5780-mile girth, twice.
When she’s not traveling, she writes, when she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing. She’s been published online and in print and has earned several writing-related certificates through ed2go and NovoEd.
Her alternative lifestyle allows just enough room for her husband of 33 years (33 implies loves), her family, anything animal, the environment, women’s issues, minimalism, yoga, and has vast amounts of compassion for immigrants and refugees.
She can truly say, ‘I live out of a suitcase.’
Her motto: Life is too short to waste on hating.
She speaks German, English and is working on improving her Spanish.
Welcome to the Canadian Culture site at BellaOnline and allow me to introduce my goals for this influential medium. The Canadian Culture Channel at BellaOnline will not only introduce you to new ideas about Canada but also give you great insight into what is available for you to explore in this beautiful country. With my articles, I aim to bend stereotypes and confirm the reason we are respected the world over. Ah! Canada is a phrase I´ve encountered often during my travels, and people always respond with a glint of recognition and respect.
When we meet on the Canadian Culture Channel, I will take you on a journey, by rail, by car, and imagination to all corners of this beautiful country that I have had the pleasure to experience first hand. As a Canadian and immigrant my perspective will be as diverse as the country. Together, we´ll indulge in food experiences, discuss Canadian art, literature, music, and traverse each province and territory and so much more. You´ll get to know this country intimately and want to put it on your bucket list. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Looking forward to hearing from you, and I hope you´ll reach out to receive my newsletter.
