Journeys Into was founded by Eric Model.

Few are as familiar with places offbeat, off the beaten path overlooked and forgotten as Eric. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for places beyond the interstate that provide a unique sense of place”, Eric said. For over 25 years, he has turned the passion into a career, becoming one of North America’s leading authorities and voices on things Americana, Canadiana and more. Formally , the description is of author, syndicated columnist, radio broadcaster & producer (Journeys into Hidden America, Journeys into Hockey, Journeys into Beer and Journeys into Canada), travel expert, entrepreneur, teacher, and consultant/coach/advisor to businesses, communities and individuals. But he does much more. His creative & passionate multi-disciplinary approach uniquely blends together various disciplines and diverse perspectives into an integrated platform and brand. He occupies a place at the intersection between good content, media, community, sponsorship/marketing, travel and the dollars that can be generated from this mix.
