  • clothes i haven't folded everything i've just kind  of thrown it in the suitcase i'll do a final pack  

  • yeah i'm not taking much because i do have clothes  in fredericton that i need to bring back here  

  • and who forgot to do laundry both of us you don't  really you normally do laundry i do groceries so  

  • i'm bringing home a bag of dirty clothes which  is slightly embarrassing but also i gave you a  

  • haircut it did that was an improvement over the  last time well last time you were impatient and  

  • you just said shiva now the only skill the only  skill left for you to learn is blending i have  

  • like a bit of a bowl cut going on there's like a a  line and then suddenly hair next time we can blend  

  • it a bit more that's that's the that's the last  touches you need to learn but you know that was  

  • my second ever haircut for you yeah you did a much  better job yeah and the barbers aren't open right  

  • now so this is this is yeah otherwise i would  have been arriving at full on wolverine so i i  

  • did shave my beard and i cut my hair so it's just  a matter of getting to the airport i i wonder what  

  • it's gonna be like the last time i flew there it  was it was pretty empty so i'm guessing maybe even  

  • more maybe even more so this time around so all  righty we'll find out we'll find out tutors togi  

  • who's leaving togi i don't like this guys  the guardian of the house i don't like this

  • when i get there you have your passport you  boarding pass yep i think i'm good let's go

  • you want it to be early no it's good it's good

  • i can't see anything it's just white

  • wow traveling in 2020 even when  you guys picked me up it was busy

  • oh good well

  • time to grab the stuff oh there's hardly  any vehicles here yeah the last time i

  • all right guys hello a bit of a different video  today i'm going to be taking a cooking class  

  • online via zoom so that should be a lot of fun so  basically to give you a bit of background sam and  

  • i work a lot with tourism boards throughout the  year to promote their destinations film videos  

  • this year one of the destinations we were planning  to visit was germany but because of the pandemic  

  • and the second wave that trip ended up getting  cancelled but as a little holiday gift i received  

  • this lovely box from the german tourism board and  they invited me to take part in a cooking class  

  • so today we're going to be making german christmas  cookies and yeah they sent over this box we have  

  • a recipe in here that we're going to be following  along all the ingredients are pre-measured  

  • pre-packaged sam's not here so my dad's  going to be helping me out with the baking  

  • and yeah he was super impressed that everything  is you know already assembled measured and he  

  • was just commenting on german efficiency  and attention to detail like even the egg  

  • so it won't break it came in this little plastic  container so yeah we're excited to do a little  

  • cooking today it's a bit of a snowy day kind of  gray outside so this should be a fun activity  

  • sam's out in new brunswick as you've probably  seen in the previous clip and yeah i'm just  

  • going to log into zoom now and we'll see who  else is participating so catch you in a bit

  • so we are currently shaping the cookies uh we're  kind of making them look like little crescents  

  • fat in the middle kind of thin and pointed on  the ends uh i'm calling them little slugs i think  

  • they resemble slugs and then we just fold them  into a little crescent shape and yeah we're just  

  • putting those on the tray in they go good luck  cookies tata see you in a few minutes it works  

  • but uh if you have in the oven okay so  the cookies are ready out of the oven  

  • coated in icing sugar there you have themended up recruiting my dad so he helped me  

  • with the whole process and we already  ate half a tray yes we actually have  

  • they were so delicious easiest recipe that you  could try for uh cookies especially for these  

  • holiday seasons you cannot stop eating them it  just takes one and then it becomes like uh one  

  • after the other one kind of one biters right  or two biters if you're a lady if you're a  

  • lady to bite her but for men one biter okay with  a nice cup of coffee or a hot chocolate and yeah

  • works at a bakery in bavaria and he was telling  us this is a 10 generation family business they  

  • have been he says that they have been in the same  building for 350 years yeah he was saying for 350  

  • years in this house the oven is never shut off so  imagine that 350 years baking cookies and pastries

  • i mean one more on camera why not you know you  can do this because you're not on a diet but i'm  

  • breaking my diet today yeah he's on a diet yeah  but honestly a wonderful recipe for the holidays  

  • it's just that christmas flavor you can taste the  hazelnuts okay that's that's basically the main  

  • the secret ingredient the main flavor that  you that you can taste well that's it for the  

  • baking adventure thanks for joining us we hope  you try this recipe because it's very good and  

  • yeah happy holidays yeah happy holidays everyone  see you in the next one in the next one ciao toki  

  • all right guys good afternoon time forlittle family outing we're with my sister ariel  

  • in the passenger seat no in the driver's seat i'm  the passage and my dad daniel he's in the back and  

  • how are we we're okay we're okay we're on our way  to see some christmas lights at the airport yes  

  • there is supposed to be this display at one of the  employee parking lot exactly and uh supposed to  

  • be a 1k run through the parking lot with all the  christmas lights and blah blah blah blah blah so  

  • so let's see what it's all about yeah this  is actually something new i've never heard of  

  • this activity they're calling it polar drive and  maybe this is the first winter they're doing it  

  • um but basically they've taken  over the the staff parking lot  

  • um my sister used to park i used to park there  it's like five levels it's all empty so it's all  

  • plenty of space to do it yeah since people  aren't really traveling as much right now i  

  • think they've tried to repurpose the staff parking  lot we're gonna be doing a one kilometer circuit  

  • where we get to see some christmas lights there's  gonna be like a light tunnel maybe a santa claus  

  • christmas trees we'll see it's meant to befestive family-friendly activity and we're gonna  

  • turn on the radio tune into a particular station  and they're gonna have christmas music for us  

  • so we're almost there the three of us so we're  going to take you here for rolling airport oh yeah  

  • it's empty let's see let's turn this around  tada that area used to be full of planes that's  

  • toronto airport yeah i i don't see  a single plane taking off right now  

  • yeah usually there there used to be  a lineup of planes on this particular  

  • runway whenever we drove past um oh there's  one coming in for a landing there you go  

  • nice little lineup of vehicles getting ready for  the polar adventure here we go value park garage

  • do you miss driving here every morning ah  no at four am four in the morning no no  

  • she does not miss it do you miss the airport  working here and seeing my friends yeah  

  • yeah that i do miss but drive the drive  here it's right here waking up at 3 30.

  • it

  • time

  • every year

  • this day

  • it is you

  • you don't have to bring me flowersdon't want shiny juice and baby it is

  • this is

  • okay

  • hello it is the next day i am back in the  car with my sister again ariel all bundled up  

  • um we're going to go hiking with my parents  and togo in the woods but first we realized  

  • we never really talked about the polar  drive yesterday what the experience was like  

  • our thoughts why why were we so rushed ariel on  the way out what's happened or is it too much  

  • too much emotion and i needed a bathroom stomach  problems so the experience was really cool  

  • but there is a lot of waiting around which  surprised me like it kind of reminded me of being  

  • stuck in traffic but with really pretty lights  and really pretty christmas decorations easy drive  

  • through a busy drive through yeah and you stop  yeah then you stop yeah but then again maybe it's  

  • just the time of day that we went like we went  after dark so maybe more people go in the evening  

  • but it was still really fun because in a way  since you're driving so slowly you really get  

  • to admire all the decorations and the christmas  trees and the reindeer and it was also really  

  • cool that there was a santa claus at the end  of one of the levels so kids could like roll  

  • down their window and talk to santa so i think  that's part of the reason why one of the trees

  • yeah and then of course we had the grinch which  was really funny my dad actually rolled down his  

  • window so he could talk to the grinch oh man  yeah whoever did the grinch great great job  

  • great acting yes for sure and the price  was 55 canadian dollars plus tax and that's  

  • per vehicle not per person so if you haveminivan and you can load like seven or eight  

  • friends or load it up people have many people  just load them up that's good value right there  

  • so i would definitely recommend it for  families with young children like if you  

  • want to do something something memorable  because it is a unique experience right  

  • so i would say it's worth doing we had a good time  um but yes we needed to get back to the bathroom  

  • no bathrooms on site just so you know go to the  bathroom before you go and anyways now we are  

  • driving to our local forest it's like a small  forest small conservation a conservation area  

  • it's like a wooded area and we like to bring togo  here so he can feel like a wolf um it's a cold day  

  • um this morning it was -18 with the wind chill  i haven't checked again um so we've bundled up  

  • still cold yeah but togo wanted to go out so yeah  we're taking the whole family out on a little  

  • hiking adventure and we'll film a little bit of  it and share what it's like so yeah that's the
