PREMIERE: IRE & ICE (Ireland Charm, Iceland Chaos!)

Join Vancouver photographer & adventurer William Jans for this 10th new multimedia show about absurd travels. Including Cork, Castles, Characters and Charm. Fantastic accents from friendly people! Then on Iceland with its impossible waterfalls, great topography and creative and clever people. Including stuff about elves, volcanos, languages, and a perhaps less than delicious delicacy. Come see why these infrequent live shows are so popular and often sell out.Over 80,000 Canadians have seen previous shows including 15 sold out west coast shows with 850 people per night. Come see what all the fuss is about.

“So smooth and flawless!”

(Lily, Edmonton)



“William Jans’ sessions are my favourite part of convention! His stories and pictures whet my appetite for travel and some of the videos definitely get my heart rate up! A group of us make sure to attend whenever he is in town. Thank you for taking us away from our every day life to new places and experiences we would never attempt on our own.” (Lori Boomer, Edmonton, Mar 3, 2023)

“So enchanting and enigmatic! How you speak is so excitable, just cannot help but listen and watch. ” (Shonna Marlo-Kwasny, Mar 3, 2023)

“Just wanted you to know how much your Show is appreciated! You are so flexible and incredible that you managed to turn a crowded space into such a positive experience for people.  As a premiere, your presentation was fantastic and was so smooth and flawless!!!! The drone pictures were amazing!!” (Lily, Edmonton, Mar 3, 2023)

Despite gale force winds this is one the the best short hikes I’ve seen. STEEP! But if 80 plus year old Maur can do this a couple times a week, you certainly can do it once 🙂

Belfast has what many consider the best accent there is. I tend to agree. Super friendly people, even when they might seem serious.

I have video in the show about how the trinity library works that is short but really interesting! No Dewey Decimals system here!

(From GETCA teachers conference shows) “I arrived early so was able to enjoy having a seat for both shows. All around me the same question was being asked, “Why such a small venue? Don’t they know how great he is?” Thank you again for such an incredible tour of the people and places of Ireland and Iceland. As my grandpa is from Ireland and my Grandma is from Iceland , it was a remarkable opportunity to see both of their home countries at the same time! Thank you again for bringing countries and people to life. I love how you always say to travel with a smile. Especially at this time , it is such a wonderful reminder of how we are all connected and that a smile can be spoken in any language. I look forward to your next event. Safe travels” (Marie Lamarre, Edmonton)

(from GETCA conference shows): “It was squishy but awesome! I’ve already asked the GETCA president to make sure you get a bigger space for your new Norway show next year!” (Michelle Aoki, Edmonton)

One of the nicest fellows I met in Dublin! Funny and wise too. The video in the show of James Patrick is a hoot.

Taken after being awake for 40 hours this group portrait inside of a fireplace seemed appropriate at the time.

A real destination restaurant serving Amazing food, and even one food item you might need to be more daring to taste!

The dark hedges made famous by Games of Thrones are a rather pleasant wee walk in Northern Ireland

This interview will give you an idea of what the shows are like

The Dark hedges in Northern Ireland was made famous in Game of Thrones. Less ominous without the fog and a pleasant little photogenic wander.
