Rotorua, New Zealand is renowned for its geothermal activity and Maori culture. We visited Te Puia and saw Pōhutu (the largest geyser in the southern hemisphere) and watched a cultural show featuring the war haka. We explored the Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland including its famous Champagne Pool and geothermal-centric hiking trails.
We were amazed by the Hairy Feet Waitomo tour that showcased numerous filming locations for The Hobbit and Rings of Power. The Mangaotaki Valley bluffs were an astounding backdrop, and the stories Suzie told were very insightful. We also experienced the famous glowworms at Spellbound in a magical boat ride through the bioluminescent cave.
On our Mediterranean cruise we visited 11 destinations in 6 countries across 2 continents aboard the world’s newest cruise ship, the Norwegian Viva.

Our TMNT Mutant Mayhem Halloween had loads of shell shocking fun for our party and trick or treaters! It featured gobs of toxic ooze slime and jello shots, cowabunga crafting, a superhero showdown and the return of RaphaElektra and DaredevElangelo.
Our Loki Season 2 premiere party was filled with much mischief, and we tried everything! The menu included the death of Mobius’ salad, Love is a Dagger cocktail, Shapeshifter’s Skillingsbolle topped with Loki Charms, and Happy Meals with Mischievous McNuggets, Sylvie’s salty fries, and Time Variance Apples (TVA).
The Rogers Centre, in the heart of downtown Toronto, has some nice views with the dome open and features a fun social area across the entire outfield. The Outfield District is definitely the highlight of this stadium with unique social areas on 3 levels. The view of CN Tower looming over right field is beautiful. The poutine hotdog was a unique experience. The Round House Park train area around the stadium has a lot of fun venues.
