For our last Global Fieldtrip Night we enjoyed a different type of evening. The weather was amazing, so we were able to start our gathering outside. We started off with eating of course by having an international pot luck. People brought dishes from different countries

Charming China and Awesome Australia!

What a combination!  At our last global fieldtrip night, we combined our images of China and Australia to showcase the similarities and differences between the two incredible countries! We had a great crowd who were open to trying a variety of tastes such as stir

The Trippers Need a Break!

Hi All, We hope everyone is doing well and enjoying a great start to the New Year! Up until now, we have been lucky to have Oliver at home and able to support our Global FieldTrip evenings.  Now that he has started his new job at

Happy New Year from the Global Fieldtrippers!

Happy New Year – All the best for 2016! Our last Global Fieldtrip Night highlighted our exploration of the Holy Lands (Israel and Palestine) along with Jordan and Cyprus.  There were close to 50 people in attendance even though it was on a Friday night.

Make Sure to Remember

One Last Time…..

After almost 400 days on the road – it was time to go home. We have truly enjoyed our time in South America and know we will be back for more. On our way back to Toronto, we decided to enjoy every last moment….this included

Delicious Peruvean Eats

Well, here is our last food post of the trip….and what a way to finish up!  The food in Peru was both interesting and delicious. We honestly didn’t find the time to do any official cooking lessons while there, but we did have the opportunity

We are lucky to belong to a fabulous neighbourhood in Pickering, Ontario. Our street is filled with amazing people who are very kind and giving. Our direct neighbours to the North of our house come from Ecuador. When Victor and Martha heard we were going

Happy Anniversary in LA!

While in LA and soaking in the rays and the sights, Oliver and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary! It’s not that hard to believe that on our honeymoon we backpacked our way through France and Italy staying in hostels and slugging around our backpacks.
