  • in cuba remember those giant pieces rememberalso remember feeding you quite decisively when  

  • we were going down on an amazon cruise in peru  oh really remember that my mom's a really good  

  • chess player so i feel like i should have gotten  you should have had a few more lessons from her  

  • okay so before we get too far into this  video i want to thank this week's sponsor  

  • which is skillshare and if you haven't heard  of skillshare yet they are basically an online  

  • learning community with thousands of inspiring  classes for creators and it's a place where you  

  • can explore new skills deepen existing passions  and get lost in creativity they have numerous  

  • topics to choose from including illustration  design photography video freelancing and more  

  • so personally i've been taking a video class and  it is called grab your audience enthralling intros  

  • for your videos and it is a class taught by jr  alley who's a young videographer from toronto and  

  • he is really talented so i was super excited when  i came across his class what i've been learning  

  • is that when you start off a video you really  only have like 15 seconds to capture people's  

  • attention so basically what he talks about is how  he creates his intros and he takes you through the  

  • whole process he shows you his timeline he talks  about things like how he prepares his shot list he  

  • talks about sound design visual effects how he  edits so that's something that i'm going to be  

  • trying to do in my videos moving forward another  cool thing about skillshare is that it's curated  

  • specifically for learning meaning there are no ads  and they're always launching new premium classes  

  • and it's less than 10 dollars a month with an  annual subscription so the first 1 000 of our  

  • subscribers who click in the link we've got  in the description will get a free trial of

  • oh oh

  • hello and welcome welcome back to the doom went  for a nice little jaunt around the premises  

  • they have a cool little trail yeah so it starts  off as stone around the perimeter of the house  

  • and then it actually forms into a proper  proper trail proper path through the woods  

  • and then it's a steep section on the way  back oh geez cheers cheers we earned these  

  • how often do we have soda rarely since it  was available it was left for us we thought  

  • it's so nice and ice cold chucked it in the  freezer as opposed to the fridge that's the secret  

  • yeah i feel like we're in mars you know like  staying in this cool futuristic dome (geodome) it  

  • just has a bit of a spacey vibe to it feels like  we're colonizing another planet mars you know what  

  • it makes me think of i listened to this really  cool podcast a few years ago it was called the  

  • habitat i believe and it was about six scientists  um and they're kind of like just testing them to  

  • see what it would be like for them to live in  these domes (geodesic dome) in a self-contained  

  • habitat essentially and kind of like pretend that  they're on mars but really i think they're in  

  • hawaii and they're just like locked up for a year  in this habitat oh that's quite the experiment  

  • i know a bit of a social experiment it was  a very interesting year i'd recommend that  

  • podcast actually if you guys haven't heard of  it that sounds really good the habitat i loved  

  • it it's only six episodes but i was hooked  so we still got board games on the agenda  

  • um can't wait to go and roast the marshmallows  a bit later yes and i have a feeling that the  

  • property is going to be lit up really nicely  once it gets dark all you gotta do is set me free

  • can't you see come on little  girl all you gotta do is

  • set me free come on

  • all right so we've moved over to chess i hope  you guys enjoyed the dancing with it's funny  

  • as fun as it was to dance with marky the moose  yeah he tired us out so now we're uh now we're  

  • playing board games how did the first chess  game oh my gosh it was check me sam cornered me  

  • in every single direction anddidn't even see it coming i i don't  

  • i'm not that good at chess to be honest  i just think i think you're pretty good  

  • i don't know i i can i can just i'm a  little bit patient i guess or or strategic

  • who's gonna eat me there nobody really what about  your tower oh i think it's checkmate no i think  

  • okay can you no no no no no no it's you know what  that that that match was a war of attrition we we  

  • basically we were taking out each other's  high-ranking pieces our queens were off the  

  • board really quickly and i just somehow  managed to gobble up a lot of your pawns  

  • yeah that was you you played well like yeah and  you know what's your best game i got blocked like  

  • i had so many pawns that were blocked like  eventually i just started killing the mob  

  • yeah yeah yeah no other pieces to go yeah  yeah that's the best game you played for sure  

  • yeah i'm impressed that's cool that was a good  game good game high five marshmallow time okay  

  • how's it going sam it is going  mighty fine what are you working on  

  • i'm working on the marshmallow stick and whatdifference in temperature oh yeah what at least  

  • like at least 10 degrees would you say cooler yes  for sure considerably cooler i mean i've got my  

  • two con i've got my jacket on and just a couple  hours ago i was sweating in my flannel so quite  

  • the difference but uh yeah we're really excited  to cook up some marshmallows and believe it or  

  • not all the hiking and stuff we've done i i've got  a bit of an appetite i'll be able to eat a few for  

  • sure how about you yeah thank you that's good  so the nice thing is that the fire was already  

  • started they were the owners were burning some  leaves so we've basically got we got it going um  

  • yeah we really bundled up well i bundled up whoa  you're you're playing with fire there oh sorry

  • my gosh it's on fire but yeah it's a lot cooler  oh yeah the temperature has dropped quite a bit  

  • from the 18. it went from it went  from almost t-shirt season to two  

  • seasons yeah that's what that's what happens  when the sun goes down in early spring in canada  

  • yeah you get teased during the day cold  by night let's eat marshmallows oh wow

  • do

  • with you i can be sad with you just take  my hand and fly up through the dreams  

  • where the skies are so clear  with you i wanna stay with you

  • with you i love the way that  you love me today let's run

  • oh hello good morning good morning how is  everyone doing it's a wet one oh it's a cold  

  • one yeah all of that talk about um you know having  the warmest spring day of the season so far and  

  • all that yeah that uh today is not that day that  is not that day we reverse to a damp very cold day  

  • we had a lot of rain all night long in a way it  was really nice because it's kind of soothing it's  

  • like just white noise yeah i i mean i guess for  me i grew up in such a rainy and wet environment  

  • on the west coast of vancouver island that the  sound of rain is actually soothing i don't like  

  • being outside in it yeah but but being indoors  is it's a familiar sound so yeah we had a nice  

  • breakfast and aside from that we also made use of  the facilities here very nice bathroom i filmed  

  • a clip for you guys so you can see what it's like  but seriously so clean spacious nice body wash and  

  • shampoo fresh towels you can basically say this  this overall experience was clamping i mean yes  

  • inside of our dome (geodesic dome) we had really  high quality coffee we had a record player we  

  • had board games we had markie the moose to hang  out with to dance with all i mean it was just  

  • a phenomenal stay yeah i mean i could easily  do another night here and we were both talking  

  • about this that it was so nice to disconnect to  be completely offline yes no internet no no no no  

  • no computer no nothing no nothing so we were just  in the present in the moment playing games having  

  • fun roasting marshmallows it's just uh it kind of  it reminds it's a reminder of what life was uh was  

  • like before everyone was so connected and online  all the time too connected too connected and so  

  • what we what we noticed i think was that we had  more it felt like we had more time in the day yeah  

  • that's so true like they slowed down the day felt  a lot longer because yeah back at home whenever we  

  • have downtime i guess i'm usually on the computer  or scrolling on my phone or watching youtube but  

  • here i couldn't do any of that so we spent a lot  more time talking and just being present aware of  

  • our surroundings but it wasn't as though the time  was dragging on it just felt like we had more time  

  • i felt like we gained time and yeah i think that  was kind of invaluable you know yeah a great  

  • experience a good reminder and maybe we should  try to integrate that into our our day-to-day life  

  • what do you think disconnecting the modem atcertain time internet yeah turning off the phone  

  • just yeah you know just maybe creating a a day or  a night per week where you do that i think it's  

  • good for your mental health to be honest yeah you  know i would agree yeah it made me realize i want  

  • to do that more often so so that is the video we  hope you guys enjoyed our home sweet no not home  

  • we hope you guys enjoyed our dome sweet dome  sweet there you go we could make it our home  

  • for a few more days and yeah the  exciting thing is that we're going to be

  • have more unique stays coming up for you guys and  the next one is going to be a mongolian yurt on  

  • a biodynamic farm yeah and we'll be fighting the  elements a little bit today so uh that should be
