That’s the simple but compelling premise behind Restaurants for Change, a new inaugural event rolling out for one night, this Wednesday, October 22 across Canada, and here in Toronto at 10 fantastic restaurants. At the media launch for the event, I got a behind the scenes look at how this exciting night came about. (more…)

[Review] Ocean: The Definitive Visual Guide

Ocean is DK’s second edition of the best selling visual encyclopedia. This impressive 512 page tome is THE definitive guide to the ocean. It contains everything that you’ve ever wanted to know about the ocean…but were too afraid to ask.

When I was growing up, DK books were a staple in my library. I used them for school projects, homework and just for fun when I wanted to read about Egyptian mummies.

Reading DK books as an adult, I’m now a big fan of their travel guides Picking up a copy of Oceans has reminded me of everything that I love about DK encyclopedia. Large, full colour photographs, detailed imagery and lots of information in an easily digested format.

Ocean divides and conquers information into different sections. Coasts and seashore, plants, reptiles, the ocean floor, sea life and even climate is covered here.
causewayI particularly liked reading about the Hairy Angler Fish (they have expandable stomachs that allow them to swallow prey larger than themselves) and about the Oceans of the World. Travel lovers will be inspirited to create bucket lists with the stunning photos of unique reefs, lagoons and pink sand beaches. The Coastal Landscape section had me adding the Giant’s Causeway in Ireland and the Skeleton Coast in Africa to my travel wish list!
