Brian Boettger

Tour Host

Brian is married to The Lovely Cindy. They raised two beautiful daughters who are grown and have families of their own. Calling Calgary home, they are fortunate to have them both living nearby, so lots of opportunity for Cindy to practice her Good Granny, Bad Granny shtick. As you can see from the photo, Brian still has the "car bug", with drag racing being a favorite past-time. There's also a 67 Coronet sitting undercover in the garage, hoping to be released from the bowels to soon see the light of day again.

After beginning his career in aftermarket automotive speed parts and then going on to manage several jewellery stores for "Peoples", Brian finished his corporate life in the area of product development, where he travelled extensively. Visiting Hong Kong, China, Thailand and Japan, Brian is fascinated with what other cultures have to offer in broadening our understanding of how these differences shape their society. In the fall of 2017, Brian co-hosted a group who were privileged to tour Helsinki Finland, as well as much of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and would encourage everyone to put that trip on their bucket list.

He looks forward to meeting you as we share this incredible planet together!
