I have so much on my mind these days. In the old days I wrote my Rawketscience blog which was quite different than this one. It had lots of high vibe tips and thoughts on life, as I cruised through it living the superfood raw lifestyle. There was some info and recipes but it was a bit of a jumble, totally unorganized and I felt lots of important information, especially recipes, got lost amidst the art, videos and random thoughts. || Read more
We took mom out to the Beaman’s Sugar Shack last weekend and it was a great trip. It brought back memories of when I was young. My parents often brought me in the spring to the Beaman’s sugar camp. The camp is what they actually call it. There are lots of sugar shacks, or camps, around here just outside of the city and some people are quite loyal, have their favorite maple provider and buy from the same family each year. || Read more
Our virtual trip today takes us to the Harbin Ice and Snow Festival. This festival is amazing with full size buildings made from blocks of 2–3 feet thick of crystal clear ice cut from the Songhua River and lit up in many colors. Quite fascinating and beautiful. This is ‘Ice and Snow World’ but there is also an exhibition at Sun Island with enormous snow sculptures as well as ice and snow sculptures throughout the city. || Read more

Today we are heading to a tea plantation, called Suvirun, which is located in the province of Chiang Rai in Thailand. Tea is harvested here every 6 weeks and from the leaves oolong tea is made. Oolong tea is made from the leaves of the camellia sinensis, like black, green and white teas. What differentiates it is the way that it is processed and of the 4 types, oolong is the most difficult one to process. || Read more
Our location of the day takes us to Iquitos, Peru where we will board the M/V Aqua, the first luxury cruise ship on the Amazon River. It is only 130 feet long and accommodates 24 guests plus cruise ship crew. Not many people have associated the Amazon River with luxury but this cruise could change that. This ship is much like a large luxury cruise ship but on a smaller scale. It has a jacuzzi and gym and the windows are not like the usual small round windows, this boat has large floor to ceiling windows. We will cruise deep into the Amazonian rain forest and jungle and stop for expeditions to see monkeys, dolphins , alligators and much more.
Our location today takes us to northern Ontario to E’Terra Samara, an eco resort designed by Farrow Partnership Architects. Here there are 12 single room tree houses nestled in the Bruce Peninsula forest, an area listed as a UNESCO World Biosphere reserve and which gives a spectacular view of Georgian Bay. || Read more
