Host Bio

Rev Dr Susan MacAlpine-Gillis & Paul Gillis

Host Photo Susan and Paul live in Cole Harbour NS, home of Sidney Crosby for hockey fans, where Susan is the minister at Cole Harbour Woodside United Church. They have been married for almost 30 years and have 2 adult daughters. Paul was "Mr. Mom" when the girls were growing up and now operates his own small cleaning business.

Susan and Paul enjoy traveling and also like the opportunity to make travel possible for people who might not travel on their own. In 2009 they took their first group to Europe, traveling to Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. They had such a great experience on that trip that they have traveled most years since, with a Russian River Cruise in May 2013 and Ireland in 2014. In June of 2015 they are back on board a Viking ship going from Budapest to Amsterdam and they have just decided to do France's Finest, another Viking River cruise in 2016. Susan and Paul have been incredibly impressed by the quality and value of each of their Rostad trips, as have their passengers, many who have traveled with them multiple times.

Elsie, one of their passengers said, "I have traveled on many bus tours and none can compare with the quality and value of Rostad". St Augustine once said, "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page". And Mark Twain sai"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover".

We would love to have you join us on one of our Rostad adventures.
