May 1st I fly out to California. My brother Sean is going to pick me up at LAX.  Then to my first farm. I have not decided if that will be San Diego or Los Angeles (my preference will be LA and then San Diego) with the other being the next farm.

  • Catalina Island for the month of June
  • Ventura/Moorpark
  • Big Sur         (with a side trip to the Gilroy Garlic Festival before Big Sur)
  • Napa Valley
  • Greece          (side trip to Istanbul)
  • Italy               (side trips to Morocco, Spain, Canary Islands, Portugal)
  • South of France
  • Bulgaria
  • Poland
  • Ukraine         (side trips to Hungry, Romania, Albania, Croatia)
  • Ireland           (visiting all of the United Kingdom I can)
  • HOME TO THE USA for about 3 months
  • New Zealand

There will be so many different farms along the way. Here are a few:

Avocado and kiwi orchard, urban roof gardens, olive orchard <for olive oil>, vineyard, backpacking shelter building, yoga retreat, Old World beaver habitat, cattle farm, horse farms, cheese farms…

But then….
