Dennison Berwick

Dennison Berwick

Travelling and writing have always been Dennison Berwick's passions. "There's too much of the world to see, and too many fascinating people to meet, to stay in one place for too long," says the sailor, storyteller and nomad. Born in Yorkshire, England, he emigrated to Canada in 1980, settling first in Alberta and later in Ontario. He has walked the length of India's Ganges river, travelled extensively in his own canoe in the Amazon and sailed in South-East Asia. (Taking a break from travelling in 1995, he established Still Life Retreat, a 90-acre non-denominational retreat north-west of Toronto.) He now spends much of the year aboard his 32-foot sailboat "Kuan Yin". He is planning voyages to several places around the globe.
