• On Saturday we joined over 100 people to stand up against animal abuse and captivity at the terrible abusement park that is Marineland, in Niagara Falls, Canada.
    We hope that we don’t have to protest again next year, but if we do, we’ll be there!

  • @codyk And I are having a lazy day back in Canada enjoying some down time and damn good toast! 😉
    What are you up to today?

  • One of our favourite places to eat while in Saskatoon is Golden Pagoda.

    A Burmese/Asian restaurant with some of the most delicious and authentic dishes.
    Hmo Gyaw (Mushroom Tofu Stir Fry) is one of our go to dishes when we visit.

    If you are ever in Saskatoon and looking for so me authentic Burmese food give this place a visit.
    Like they say on…[Read more]

    From +38 (Thailand) to -1 (Saskatchewan). It snowed this past weekend and we are trying to re-adjust to the prairie weather.

    Regardless of the cold, we are having a nice visit.

    Just ignore our sad faces 🙁

  • We are back home in Canada and I’ve wasted no time getting back to baking!

    Natures Charm gifted us with a few cans of their amazing coconut condensed milk, so I baked us a coconut loaf and topped it with a lemon coconut condensed milk icing.

  • As if our log haul flight from Thailand to Canada wasn’t bad enough, our 1:40am flight out of Bangkok was delayed to 4am, then a 5 hour flight and an 8 hour layover in Beijing, then a 13 hour flight and a 4 hour layover in Calgary, then to Saskatoon.

    It’s going to be a looooong April 18th.

    Hopefully we’ll catch some Zzzz’s.

  • It’s great to know that we can hitch hike in our village if we need to! Hooray for acts of kindness!

  • 2 more days until we leave Chiang Mai……. 🙁

  • We’ve been sanding, varnishing, priming, and painting our little hearts out for the past 2 days, and our communal space is really starting to come together.

    It feels incredibly rewarding to get our hands dirty and put our backs into a space where we will be welcoming family and friends into a tranquil and peaceful environment.

    We can hardly wait…[Read more]

  • Our 10th visit to Jay My Jam Jay in Chiang Mai was as delicious as our 1st visit.

    Noodle soup, spicy papaya salad, and ‘duck’ on brown rice was gobbled up before you could say VEGAN.

    Oh yes, we will be back

  • Just munchin’ on yellow watermelon in Kuala Lumpur.

  • Thank you Dharma Realm Buddhist monastery for your compassion for all sentient beings, and for these sugar donuts ❤️

  • We are never disappointed when we pay a visit to Ice Love You Cafe in Chiang Mai.

    Tonight we had the Roti Love You (not pictured here) and this amazing chocolate fondue with fresh fruit kebabs, and chocolate mint, rum raisin, and cappuccino chip ice cream.

    VEGAN, because we are cruelty intolerant.

  • This lovely doggo has claimed our land as his own. He comes and goes as he pleases, but he mostly comes to stay.
    We’ve named him Dunkin, short for ‘Dunkin Donut’. He is very loving and affectionate, and we are glad he chose us as the people to keep him safe <3

  • Slightly sweet, and sticky coconut rice cooked in bamboo.
    So yum!

    Has anyone tried this Thai treat?

  • Peace and Love from Thailand.

    Today we planted an abundance of bamboo on the land.

    It was very hot, and very sweaty, so I thought I would take a break and get a snap of me in my work hat

    Throwback to when we witnessed the entrancing Whirling Dervishes in Konya, Turkey.

    The Whirling Dervish took their name from Jelaleddin Rumi (1207-1273), the mystical poet and great Sufi master, called Mevlana (our leader) by his disciples.

    The ritual begins by reciting prayers, and is followed by each dervish beginning to spin until they are…[Read more]

    Why I adore Chiang Mai, reason #5
    The sweetest little cafes, restaurants, and homes down every quiet soi (street), with a beautiful, yet simple mix of traditional Thai style, and cool modern concrete ❤️

  • Today is a pretty meaningful day for us. No, not because it is Valentine’s Day, but because 5 years ago today, @codyk and I left Canada to see and learn about the world.

    Although it wasn’t our first visit, Egypt was our very first stop in 2012.

    Since then, we have visited over 40 countries, made new lifelong friends, opened up to deep compassion…[Read more]
