    Dreamy travel destinations for your summer vacay

    Travel and Money Expert Barry Choi helps you plan your dream summer vacation with a list of his top travel destinations.

    Video: Dreamy travel destinations for your summer vacay

    People don’t think about the Caribbean as a summer destination, but Barbados is a year-round destination with so many things to do.If you’re looking for a place to stay, check out the Crane Resort which has direct access to the beach on the Atlantic side and some of the best restaurants on the island. There’s also Naniki which isn’t on the beach, but up in the mountains. This is the spot you should head to if you’re looking for a wellness or nature retreat.

    As for what to do, Tiami catamaran cruises offer a half day tour along the tranquil Caribbean Sea where you’ll get to snorkel by a shipwreck and among sea turtles. There’s also Harrison’s Cave where you can explore the site via a tram! For a little bit of history, check out St. Nicholas Abbey – one of the oldest rum distilleries on the island.

    Be sure to try a flying fish sandwich is basically the national dish and is super cheap. Then there’s Oistin’s Fish Fry where you can get fresh seafood and sides while enjoying local entertainment. Fun fact, McDonald’s doesn’t have any locations on the island. Instead, the local fast food joint is Chefette which is definitely worth trying.

    Everyone has heard of the Blue Lagoon, but what is it exactly? It’s basically a thermal spa where you enjoy the pools but you can also pay for additional treatments such as face masks and massages. Keep in mind that there are spas all over the country so you can easily find a spot with fewer crowds compared to the blue lagoon.

    Now that you’re all relaxed you explore the rest of the country. The nice thing is most of the attractions are nature related, I’m talking about waterfalls, glaciers and rock formations that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. It’s easy enough to rent a car and drive around the country on your own, but G Adventures offers a 7-day Wellness Iceland tour where all of the logistics are taken care of including meals, transportation, and even a guided meditation session.

    Nicknamed the Emerald City, Seattle has so many outdoor activities to do from scenic hikes to kayaking. It’s also the cultural center of the Pacific Northwest and is easily accessible to Canadian travellers.

    When people think of Seattle, they probably picture the Space Needle. It recently went through a renovation and now features a floor-to-ceiling glass viewing experience. Other attractions you can’t miss include the Museum of Pop Culture and Pike Place Market which is the longest continuously running public market in the U.S.

    As you can imagine, the city hosts year-round events including the Destination Moon exhibit at the Museum of Flight. 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing so you’ll get a chance to see artifacts from the Apollo 11 mission.

Andrea Donsky, Holistic Nutritionist, NaturallySavvy.com
Spring natural and organic product trends from this year’s Expo West
Twitter: @andreadonsky | @naturallysavvy

1. Environment 

One of the biggest trends this year was sustainability. How can we the consumer, help the environment by making better purchasing decisions, and what can companies do to make products that are more environmentally friendly.

Two companies that are leading the way in reducing the use of single use plastic bottles are: SodaStream and Brita.

Here are some cool stats: Each Canadian household can save up to 2,000 single-use plastic bottles a year by using a SodaStream. Have you ever used one? It’s a sparkling water maker. Last year alone, SodaStream users replaced 217 million single-use plastic bottles.

The other thing you can do to reduce your use of single use plastic bottles is to use a Brita pitcher with a built in filter. One filter replaces 1,800 single use plastic bottles a year. My mother loves her Brita filter! I love it because it filters our chlorine and lead, and the water tastes great.

2: Hemp

Another huge trend was hemp. Manitoba Harvest is leader when it comes to hemp-based foods. They recently launched their Hemp Yeah! Granola. Each serving has 10 grams of plant-based non-soy protein, and less than 10 grams of sugar. It comes in 3 flavours (Honey & Oats Blueberry and Dark chocolate) and it’s great for breakfast or as a snack.

3: Mushrooms

The next trend is mushrooms, and specifically mushroom supplements that include Reishi, Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Maitake, shiitake and Chaga mushrooms. Different mushrooms have different properties and contain antioxidants, anti-bacterial and anti-aging properties. They are amazing for overall immunity and brain health, specifically memory. Both Pure Essence and Garden of Life have mushrooms lines with clean ingredients.

4: Adaptogens

Adaptogens are herbs that help us to cope better with stress and fatigue by regulating hormones. If our body needs a little more of something or a little less, herbs like tulsi and ashwaghanda help with energy, mental focus, and endurance. Organic India is new to Canada and has a line of Tulsi Teas and Supplements that contain adaptogenic herbs.

5: Inflammation

Anti-inflammatory continues to be a huge trend since it’s so closely related to chronic illness. The key is keeping that inflammation down on a consistent basis. One of my favourite supplements that I take daily is serrapeptase. It’s an enzyme that helps to break down protein in our body. It works really well for helping to reduce phlegm and breakdown fibrous tissue in the body and can also help with back pain.

6: Clean beauty

The last trend is clean beauty. I am so happy to see that this trend because we absorb 60% of what we put on our body so avoiding chemicals like parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol and other chemicals we know cause harm to our body, specifically hormones, is important. Natural beauty products have exploded with everything from skin care, to deodorant and make-up. 2 brands I’m really liking who are both local is Look Organics, and Clean Kiss Organics.
