When I usually check dj events on socials, I most of the time checked the songs that interests me. Sometimes it’s like a never ending moment with the most cherished songs that a lot of people would never get tired of when the melody has a good rhythm to the beats. When I hear most of my favourite EDM or Drum n Bass Artists, I would get pumped to see which concert, nightclub or music festival depending on popularity size of where and when they perform the shows. Generally I get excited because it’s the same type of music pitch the raise like I used to hear it on the radio which most Dance Artists in general wanna raise the pitch to make the song sound more appealing to the fans of the audience.
It could be music videos from the special type of video that wasn’t the main official video, or it could be your workout show or it could be your drive to playlist or it could be just for your favourite tunes. Maybe it could your favourite artist that you want to see but you don’t feel comfortable going to large crowds where it’s too cramped or if it’s too late to step up for a late night party that starts by midnight or maybe you don’t wanna to travel too far and fear of going to the city at night.
Most people seemed comfortable going to warehouses at nightclubs but for myself I don’t feel comfortable going to warehouses at night or don’t want to see an artist that late at night because sometimes I wish I want to see them badly which makes me feel sad. I would love to see a EDM or Drum n Bass concert some point in life which hopefully I can see them for a once in a lifetime opportunity to see them for real life.
Here’s the rest of the song underneath below through all of the platforms of songs and festivals on socials.
The same weekend that I went to Christine’s Weekend House Upstate and I dreamed about the time when I was on month Business Trip to England because it has the highest percentage of viewers overseas and I have some of my personal interests and related to my expression like I wish that I get to do outside of my home country. It was during the month of May 2025, I was on a 1 month experience living in England from Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Leicester to London and Southampton.
The 1st week, I spend my first full week in Liverpool to discover life and piece of history to learn their culture which I visited a couple of Musems and discovered the brand new Bradley Docks Stadium of Everton which is by the water and Anfield to discover the history of Liverpool FC from the Glory Years and their current Champions soviviners epscailly the Premier League Championship Throphy of the 19/20 Season. I stopped by to some cafe’s before and after my seminars about the international support of Autism in the UK and US because Autisticana has the most viewers outside of the United States. I eventually took took 1 day in Manchester to discover interesting spots which i was able to visit the Studios of iTV to see the set of Coronation Street. On the 2nd Week of England, I visited in Leeds, from Monday Night to Friday during the day and decide to take drive and dropped off my first rental car and took the train and cabs at local ranks. When I got to my appartment, I had a very special friend name Patrick and he is on the autism spectrum. He really enjoyed the life of England and became a huge fans of my blogs which I started with Leeds United getting secured in the Premiership against the Brentford Bees, especially the greatest comeback against Bournemouth.
Patrick wanted to give me the best surprise for my Tuesday night that he give me an extra ticket for me to see Leeds United against Nottingham Forest. On the other hand, his mate which Ryan Colloney is close friend of him and had 2 more of friends which Finley and Conor which he has his other mates that would make it to the match like Tyler, James and like the mates that I Would like to have on Tuesday Nights back at home. Patrick works at the cafe by the city Centre with the Taxi Rank which he works on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday depending on football day for the local. When I got to the Marriott which I didn’t realize that he lives around the area and always walk in the area.
I was so pumped to watch Leeds United play on a Tuesday Night at Eland Road which Leeds. Before I got ready I FaceTime my mom to check how everything is doing and heard Danica my Parrot who makes noises as usual so I talked to her about the weather was gorgeous outside and it was the same temperature as my holiday while it’s mostly cloudy in England and it’s mostly sunny back at home. I went to Patrick’s House to take the light rail to the stop where they always hangout on Tuesday Nights but this time the wanna walk to Eland Road to experience the moment and Leeds United has been the best team in the League outside of the main 6 clubs included Newcastle United. Liverpool FC has won the Premier League Title during the 2023/2024 while it was nice to bring back to fans watch the moment in person which I suddenly remember the moment when my room was crazy even the birds came the party. While Man City and Arsenal are battling the League while we focused on Leeds unforgettable Season with so many lady winning goals which they’re lucky to take the Top 10 in the League. If Leeds win against Nottingham they’ll take 5th Place before the 2024/2025 Season ends.
When we got to the Stadium, Patrick and I were so excited while his mates were having their normal conversations. It was a thrilling experience to see Leeds United even by the famous statue outside of the stadium. We took our seats and started off with Leeds taking the ball while I was lucky to seat by the view of the goal with the tunnel of fans leaving in and out of their seats, Leeds United got their first goal of the match with Rodgrio from a great pass from Patrick Bamford. We saw the most beautiful sunset with all of the beautiful colors after the clouds pulled out. Before it reached 20 minutes Patrick and I walked around the Concourse of Leeds which it was cool to see the entire path empty so we had a quick stop to get snacks and a toilet break. When we planned to walk back to our seats, we heard the whistle blow but we saw the tvs in action but it was a penalty for Leeds to give Nottingham Forrest to level it up and heard the away fans fading in the echoes of belief. We ran upstairs and Forrest take the Penalty kick and Brennan Johnson got the goal to level it up. It didn’t stop with the Forrest taking the lead at the 35th Neco Willams the former Liverpool player pass it to Joe Worrall and did a long range kick to run the ball and give Nottingham the lead 2-1 which it stayed until halftime. We saw the beaufil colors of the sky to avoid the misery of the performance and we sang the Leeds Anthem with our hearts with the big general Leeds Supports but on our side of the field but the opposite side had more fans that were explicative that had some Hooligans and crazy young men who can care less. At the time of my dream it was one week after the day when Leeds took an outstanding victory 4-3 against Bournemouth which I still had Jesse Marsch who was the Coach of Leeds and huddle up to regroup the team and bounce back to get some in the 2nd half of the match. The match started with Leeds off to a slow start but Nottingham Forest took control of the ball for the first 10 minutes but until Jack Harrison got a great pass from Luke Ayling but it was so close at was an inch for a goal but hit the post but at the same time the goalkeeper Dean Henderson touched it before it hit the post. Tyler Adams kicked the ball for a corner kick and pass it to Liam Cooper and did a massive pass to Patrick Bamford which Leeds got the goal at the 57th Minute to level it up which I wanted to use it for my video compilation for my vlog. I was happy that wanted to record one moment of the memory lane with Leeds. After Leeds was able to tie it up 2-2, the match was starting to get into Leeds way but had fouls from both sides and a couple of yellow cards along the way. When it was time for some substitutes took over the field which Nottingham shortly got for a serious foul which it was originally checked for a yellow card but review the video and realize it was a call for a red card at the 75th minute. The whole Leeds fan were happy so Patrick and I laugh at Nottingham’s misfortune. At the 80th minute, the dusk sky was beautiful even it would stay natural twilight for the rest of the evening was beautiful but 3 other new Leeds players took some quick passed it Weston Mackenzie and ran it all the way to Brendan Aaronson got a powerful and all of the fans around the Eland Road got hyped up they thought it was going to be the winning goal. All the fans sing American Boy Leeds Edition after the celebration of Aaronson’s Goal. By the the 85th minute the dutchmen Pascal Struijk was about get the goal which he was tripped for a foul but the Referee blow the whistle even if the was ball was already in the net, either way the fans were blasted to raise the energy whenever if it counts or not but Leeds got a desperate chance to take the 4th goal. Pascal Struijk was able to get a second chance to retake the goal for a penalty kick which gives Leeds United a thriller lead 4-2. Everyone screamed for the goal and partied like its the moment of time. There was singing and shouting from fans around the stadium which some fans planed to leave before the traffic takes over. Everyone put pure heart for Leeds will move up to Fifth Place which they could their award for going to the Europa League Group Stage for the 25/26 Season. At the 90th Minute which they added 5 minutes of stoppage time, Willy Gnonto took the run and pass it Crysencio Summerville and wrapped up with a stunning goal which as soon as cheered, everyone got excited but i got too excited and accidentally on an empty seat which I had a quick chuckle it wasn’t plan to jump up and down for that moment. The match closed it with an outstanding win for Leeds United defeated Nottingham 5-2. As soon as the match ended with a victory as fans leaved the Stadium, we stayed for an extra 15 minutes I took a group photo with my England Mates which one of Leeds Stewarts did it before we got kicked out as we were the last few 100 people to wait for the traffic to fade down. When were ready to leave the Stadium, we took the exit path and saw some kids and happy fans outside of the Stadium pointed out that was gut who wrote the blog about Leeds United from Autisticana. It was a memorial match to witness the greatest home wins of the season.
We all departed our ways which some have work and I was getting ready for a special VIP Nightclub from Someone in Leeds that messaged me since I was famous for Dance Artist in the UK was Awesome and Songs in High Pitch for Drum n Bass Artist. So Patrick and I showed me his place to meet his family before I walk back to the Marriott to get ready for the Nightclub. We took the rail took the place by the Town Centre and it was Nightclub that usually opens on Fridays and Saturdays but opens during the week for special occasions or close the place when no one makes reservations for special occasions. When we got to the place Patrick’s 3 Mates came in on the other side the town centre which Ryan, Finn and Conor were ready to pump up the music. We got in for a special VIP Music playlist for me from all of my favorite artists of Drum n Bass in the 2020s which it was perfect and played most of my favorite songs in high pitch.
There was list of songs from BLVCK CROWZ, Aktive, Alexa Mae, Blanke, Delta Heavy, Freaks and Geeks, Friction, Georgie Riot, Holy Goof, Kanine, Koven, Lee Mvtthews, Seven Lions, Skepkiss, Sub Focus, Subsonic, Tsuki, Turno, Wilkinson, and so much more artists that would last the night.
While some round of the music when I need a break of dancing while the music switch to regular pitch for the audio I socialize with The Ladies and talked about my work of art and creativity in the world of blogging. I had some great chats and had some a nice chat about life and music which I also talked about what was life with music festivals. I also danced with some of them and flirted with them to get the attention. Afterwards I went back to dancing with my mates and some of the guys brought their women they want to dance with while I was more focused on a people person with women. We also did some wacky dance moves and brought the club to an unforgettable night to remember. When it was 2AM, the party finished and we said goodbye to our partners and exchanged social accounts to keep in touch so we walked to the pizzeria and howled like the wolf because we had fun and got drunk so we decided to wrapped up the night by getting a midnight snack. At the pizza place we’re loud and obnoxious about the time of our lives what it feels like to be young and . I had a huge slice of pizza with chips and it was outstandingly delicious.
When we left the pizzeria, I had a quick hiccup and held a moment to stop and regain some of my momentum because I had plenty to drink at the club and their was a taxi rank few buildings by the pizzeria. Luckily we took the last 2 cabs that were available at the taxi rank. Patrick and I took the minibus which it was the Vauxhall Vivaro as a passenger van which we had a nice chat while riding back to the hotel and also talked to the driver about Leeds Victory and the simple life of driving the cab in Leeds. We decided to finally relax because we used up all of the energy. The guys took the sedan cab as the Audi A6 which they continued to get wild as soon as they left. By the time we got to our destination, we thanked the driver and Patrick also used his card to notify his account for the Leeds Taxi App and I was amazed that you get to be a member of the local cab rewards program. The driver already got an automatic pickup for a passenger who wants to get to the airport for a early morning flight when we walk back to the hotel.
I took him to my room at the Marriott to have a child feeling by laughing and having fun while spending the rest of the night watching Bluey and Clohet which I recently dreamed about it as a spin-off version but more in adult animation with the same animation studios and animation style as Bluey which back at home I would watch it on Hulu and the UK has a streaming site which lucky both Australia and the UK has it on their local network channel.
As soon as we woke up by noon for a Wednesday which we made coffee to start the day so I can get ready for a Zoom Meeting with Christine. I had a business meeting on Zoom with Christine and talked about the importance of Autisticana and upcoming events later in the summer. After the Zoom meeting we stop by at a Cafe by the town Centre to have brunch. Then Patrick showed me his Autisticana Building in Leeds near Bradford which it’s actually a house in the dead end path in Pudsey within 5 minutes away from the Train Station. We did some blogging on their own site included a category on what a positive impact about your week if it’s good or most memorable highlight and I was happier to see Patrick’s Teacher Tiffany who runs for the Autisticana Division of the UK which I was the top American Fan that often goes on their website. The house was next to the Group Home for the individuals to learn independence skills so they don’t have to deal with pupils that are typical neighbors. They have the sensory room in the basement and the Colour Room in the upstairs Room. We decided to write a blog about Leeds and then we made season pesto and tomato sandwiches. Afterwards we wave goodbye and we both walked to the train station and and hugged Patrick and wave goodbye when we got his local train station and I went back to the Marriott and talked to Christine about everything plus the most important lessons of life.
The next morning I took a great goodnight sleep and took the train to Newcastle and had another conference Meeting. I also went to the beach to rent a surfboard and discovered St. James Park which is home to Newcastle United. I took an evening nap so I can stay up late at the nightclub where they play all kinds of Dance Music from Synth-pop to heavy bass music. I also dance with a lot of different attractive women. The next day I went to Leicester to have another Conference Meeting which I went to visit a facility for Autism of Leicester, which there was recreation Centre which the people were awesome. During my few days of Leicester, I discovered the town Centre and some of the historic sites of England. I wrapped the weekend and went to the nightclub with pop music and dance. I also dance with a lot of attractive women and chatted with them about my stories and life which I had the sexy moves when the music was blasted. I was the top dancer of the night luckily most of my favorite pop and dance songs from the 2000s, 2010s, and today’s hits were in high pitch like I used to hear on the radio which was awesome. I was also happy that one of my favorite woman was able to take me home for a one-night stand. The next morning I woke up with the birds chirping and we went to the cafe of Downtown Leicester City. We talked about life, music and type of style of interaction and the way feel about other people included my life story while feeling relaxed than dealing with the loud music last night. I was happy to bring up my horizons to talk about my experiences that most neurotypical people don’t even realize about my genius of autism. We talked about our favorite holidays and top memories including nightclub stories even though I don’t go as much back home because I feel free to avoid any crimes or drugs in the club while at the resorts you don’t have to even worry about waking to a dark night scary. We decided to stay friends because she is more into the social life but I was happy to text her on socials when I get a chance about music and my blogs.
During my final week of England, my friend BFF Patrick texted me that Leeds United won 2-1 against Huddersfield which he was glad that that we went Tuesday over Saturday because he realized he had work last minute. I chatted with him on the train from Leicester to Paddington. On My visit to London, I stopped by to spend a couple of days to stay in London to see the top attractions like the London Tower, The London Eye, Queen Elisabeth’s Castle, Buckingham Palace, The London Museum, Big Ben, the new Tottenham Stadium and other popular attractions of London. I wish the Queen of England would still be alive. I took the Black Cab, the London Tube. and walked through the London Bridge. I was also invited to the Autisticana Sponsorship Meeting in London by the London Tower.
I spend my last my full day Southampton I took a rental car from London and drove it to Southampton for my last conference event in the Uk and watched the season finale of the Premier League on my phone and laptop at some hotel by the beach near Southampton. I was more focused with the Leeds United match at St. Mary’s Southampton
Premier League Table of what happened in my dream of Leeds United being the dominant of the 24/25 Season
Tress MacNeille who played as Daisy Duck deiced to step down after playing for her since Late 1999 during the 2nd Season of Mickey Mouse Works which was a tv show from 1999 to 2001 on ABC for Saturday Morning Cartoons. She made her first appearance for a Disney Film called Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas and tool the role as soon Diane Michelle stepped down and let her take the role of Daisy Duck. She played as Daisy Duck for 2 Decades and worked throughout the Mickey Mouse Series included Disney’s House of Mouse, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Minnie’s Bowtoons, Mickey Mouse Shorts Series, Mickey and the Roadster Racers, The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, Legend of the Three Caballeros, DuckTales, Party Palace Pals (Revival Series of Minnie’s Bowtoons) and the 1st Season of Mickey Mouse Funhouse.
Daisy Duck has been one of the characters in the Mickey Mouse Series who’s been loving charming but can be sassy at times which she can be fun and silly with her own wacky style. As soon as Tress took the role for Daisy Duck, fans has slowly increase having her in the Mickey Mouse Squad, while the merchandise and figures is still needs to be done to gain more popularity. However, Daisy started to become a loveable character during Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and showed viewers can but a positive note about her and make her an icon. She also did more roles after the success of the series even at the Disney Parks
The Storyline is that Debra Wilson would make her first appearance of taking the role of Daisy Duck would be life changing experience for her and hard work of doing many voice roles since the late 90s. Debra Wilson who was Born and raise in Ozone Park, New York and worked in the tv show industry for many years especially the performing arts of work to be superstar. Debra also worked on many tv shows and video game projects to do the voices of many characters. She also worked in live action shows, films, cartoons, video games and so many more. Debra was one of most flexible actress and often takes time to think before she resume the role of the many characters. She was an opened minded person who would express how she feels and willing to talk about life and work in the Hollywood industry.
The Reason why Debra Wilson decides to take over for Daisy Duck because Tress MacNeille decides to step down after the fact that she doesn’t wanna work on Season 2 for Mickey Mouse Funhouse, because she wants to be more focus on other work like the revival series of Futurama on Hulu for 2023, and continue to work for other tv shows. The role of Daisy Duck was a big commitment for her which it would be really sad for loyal Daisy Duck Fans which Tress’ Voice for her in 2 Decades. When Debra did the audience for Daisy Duck she had a couple of setbacks and took 3 tries to take the role for her. After her 3rd try for the audience of Daisy Duck, she jumped up and down because she got the role and she was able to meet the producer of Mickey Mouse Funhouse. The idea was that Disney wants a new actress to take the role for Daisy Duck because they want a new actress to sound like Tress because they’re afraid that they might lose of the audience for future episodes of Mickey Mouse and going forward. Especially they want the Tress MacNeille template so they get the idea of Daisy Duck for the future by having the loving and energetic Daisy Duck. Disney always question about what is Daisy Duck before Tress and onward of the future by being focus on her personality of the character itself. Disney also tried their best to keep Daisy Duck going but it was the lack of success but really have improved the fans as decades go by even when Daisy Duck is Donald Duck’s Girlfriend even during a tv series Quack Pack which only lasted in 1996. There was also the moment when Debra Wilson took the role for Daisy Duck, the producer wants to find a way that Daisy Duck could be entertaining and fun to take the role of her. Debra did a lot of work to catch up and worked the recording sessions doing 5 to 6 episodes in the studios per Fridays, because Disney wants to keep making new episodes and shorts for upcoming events and Disney specials even the sing alongs.
By the time when the future of Daisy Duck goes on, they’ll be more opportunity of Daisy Duck in figures, expanding her position at Disney Parks and special accessions, even though she could possibly be in the Disney Hall of Fame and be on the Hollywood walk of fame one day like Minnie Mouse did in 2018. Generations will live on for Tress MacNeille who worked for Daisy Duck and now it’s Debra Wilson’s turn to take the role of her. She will eventually be good as Tress does for Daisy Duck.
After all these years, I enjoy listening to EDM Songs but when I felt like researching the artists from autobiography, about most of them from UK which the Netherlands were my runners up of DJ’s outside of the US. During the time of a Global Pandemic, I decided to focus on young talents of British Dance DJ’s who started as local DJ’s in their hometown area. I watched them play club music on social media. I never focus on going to Nightclubs in general which I wish I would like to go. I really love to hear nightclubs on social media and videos so I can enjoy the experience and tryout different musics for each club. I became interested of these small artists because of a specific channel of music on Spotify and search, Drum and Bass, UK Garage, and other categories of EDM Songs for current generation.
If I would here any of my music or my favorite songs from the artists if they decide to play it in high pitch at clubs, I would rewatch it over and over and over until I get tired of it. Not just nightlife in the UK, it could happen to nightclubs and concerts in Australia, the Netherlands, USA, Germany and Ireland, Tomorrowland in Belgium and other countries around the Globe. The DJs that I’ve listened to is Tsuki, Aleya Mae, Koven, Aktive, BLVCK CROWZ, Subtronics, Blanke, Excision, Freaks & Geeks, Biscits, Maduk, Modestep, JEANIE, Lee Mvtthews, K Motionz, Wilkinson, Ekko & Sidetrack, Friction and Protostar

Our News Virtual Travel Bloggers got the opportunity to take a kayaking trip last Friday with a young man named Huy (You can follow him at his Facebook page Huygo Gang & Kiara Badass). Huy, Kiara and Momo created this group to hold a space for us to grow our connection. We’ll update upcoming tours in Vietnam or in other countries. Exploring hidden spots, telling untold stories, and having fun are what we want to do together!
It was really nice to see that Huy created this whole trip using his own dog Momo as the main character in his story. My impression is that he named Momo after the winged lemur from the beloved Nickelodeon cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender. The show follows a young boy named Aang as he awakens from a century long slumber in an iceberg and goes on a quest to bring harmony and peace to a world of four warring nations. I think Huy named his dog Momo because Momo from Avatar and Aang have a very close connection with each other as well as his sky bison Appa. I can relate to Huy and Momo’s bond because Momo rarely leaves Huy’s side as he livestreams his journeys for HeyGo.
We began our trip on the boat with Huy to an abandoned island as Momo stepped into his role as captain and led the way while Huy started educating us with his wonderful storytelling about the virtual excursion he was taking us on. The boat ride showed us beautiful tunnels of coconut palm trees which stood out in the murky and shallow swamp as we finally ended up at Hoi An.
Hoi An, Vietnamese for “peaceful meeting place” is one of Vietnam’s most renowned cities that is located within Vietnam’s Quang Nam province. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site because it serves as a renowned example of a 14000s to 1800s Southeast Asian trading port that displays lots of influence, whether it be from other parts of Vietnam or other countries teeming with traders and travelers.
It was very interesting that people worldwide could come on from around the world and go on a boat ride throughout Vietnam’s river. That meant the Heygo viewers could ask a lot of questions from their own perspectives and I find that intriguing especially as a group of travel bloggers.
As an investigator, we dug a little bit deeper to find out the name of the island and why it was flooded. From our research, we learned that Quang Nam province was heavily destroyed due to Typhoon Joan in November 1964. Many villages as well as Vietnam’s rice crop supply was destroyed by the raging rivers and heavy rain and many people died as well.

Sit in a comfortable quiet space. Let your body relax, preparing yourself for your mind to relax. Take a deep inhale in, and exhale completely. Once again, take another full breath in and exhale completely. We are going to take an imaginary trip on a kayak through the Vietnam rivers. Gently bring your shoulders to your ears, shrug your shoulders up creating tension, and let them drop. Again, take a deep breath in bringing your shoulders up creating tension and then let them drop. We begin our venture kayaking the the Vietnam rivers to an abandoned village. As we start our voyage we take notice of the sight of palm trees as we keep paddling through the canals. We take a deep breath in as we bring our shoulders up and exhale releasing tension as we continue our kayak journey. We are excited and can feel the sensation of joy as I look at my little dog on the front of the boat playing the captain of our journey and of our visual meditation. I am so grateful I have a small companion to take this trip with. As I exhale completely, I bring the boat up to the shore of the island. I take a deep breath in and smell all the vegetation on the island. I hear “splash splash” as my dog falls off the boat. I laugh as I remind myself that he can swim because I taught him well. As I begin to pick him up and dry him off, I feel the sensation of his wet body and keep drying to make sure he is comfortable. As Momo and I get off the boat, we walk onto the island. I follow my sense of smell as I am led to plush vegetables and fruit gardens. I pick a ripe star fruit off a palm tree. As I taste its sweet yet sour fruit, I then feel the fruit which is in the shape of a 5 point star. Its skin is edible and the meaty part of the fruit tastes sour. I learn that they use star fruit in many dishes in Vietnam. I am full with joy as I take another inhale and exhale deeply. I follow the fruit patch till I see these big beautiful cows. I notice that the cow is starting to come over to me and I feel that he wants me to pet him. I first place out my hand to be very gentle as I feel the sensation of him licking my hand. I see that myself and the cow are really laughing together. I take another deep breath in and out and feel grateful that I have this bond with the animal. I begin to sit under the tree with my dog to relax. I close my eyes, take a breath in and out as I am very grateful that I can return to this amazing trip and create my very own visual meditation and excursion whenever I wish.
Scott’s Sport Review
We found out that one of the most popular sports in Vietnam is Da Cau. Da cau or “foot Badminton” is a sport that has been in practice in Vietnam for centuries. The emperors and kings of Vietnam also encouraged their soldiers to play the sport to sharpen their agility for fight. There is incredible acrobatics that the players must utilize when practicing da cau.

There was a guy in cambodia named Huygo
Who had a puppy named Momo
They took us on a kayak tour
And showed us local scenery and more
And now that’s another country that I know!
Dr. Christines Positive Take Away
I am so proud of all my kids consistency with continually sharing their talents with the world . This trip was extremely fun because it show cased the joy and accountability found in the host It is so wonderful to see a young adult be creative and enthusiastic about his work . He captured this virtual experience very well and entertained his global audience with his dog Momo.
He answered all questions immediately that were asked with calmness and confidence . Some participant asked him ” What am I learning ?” and his response was ” Watching is learning ”. I thought that was confident and a brilliant answer. In this fast paced crazy world we live in, everyone is looking for a quick fix and an answer There is beauty behind curiosity . If we quiet down to pull ourselves into our five senses, we will find our answers So visually watching was so on point. Great job Hoy, and kudos to my newsmakers for sharing their individual gifts with each trip we take. Consistency is the key to success
The one thing that stood out on this trip, was the colors were beautiful in this festival . Outfits are fruitful and display the love amongst the people display the true meaning of joy in every sense of the word.
Carnaval de La Paz is a party-like carnival. It is celebrated throughout Bolivia with unlimited attractions for it’s attendees.
It portrays the Masterpiece of the Oral and intangible heritage of humanity; due to which it has been listed among Unesco’s heritage sites since 2001.
Attendees will have access to local crafts, and local Bolivian’s lifestyles and cultures.
Throughout the festival, more than 48 groups of folk dancers specializing in 18 different folk dances perform a pilgrimage to the Shrine of the Tunnel every Saturday of the carnival in a traditional parade. The traditional Llama llama or Diablada became the leading traditional dance of the festival.
La Paz is one of two capitals in Bolivia, the second being Sure
La Paz is the capital with the highest elevation
Bolivia lost its cost line to Chile, but still has a navy
Scott’s Sports Revues
One of the most popular sports in Bolivia is soccer known as Futball.
Volleyball and horse racing are also very popular.
Other popular sports Bolivia enjoys are volleyball and table football, both of which can seen being played on street corners. Volleyball has increased in popularity as an alternative to football, as both can be played with just a ball. After marking the net with a string or cord, the game can be played on any surface.
There are many other sports Bolivians like to practise or watch, including tennis, swimming, horse riding, gymnastics and car and bike racing. Notable exceptions are the sports of American football and baseball which despite many attempts have never captured the heart of Bolivia.
Although they have not integrated themselves into football as yet, Bolivian women have integrated themselves into another male dominated sport. Bolivia’s native Aymara women fight lucha libre style.
They are distinctive for wearing traditional feminine dress for their free range wrestling bouts, of lace petticoats, pollera skirt, shawl and a bowler hat over their hair which is plaited in two braids. The fighting women are called cholitas luchadoras and this practice of wrestling which began in 2001 has become more popular than traditional male wrestling.
As a poor third world country with little prowess in sports, Bolivia has seen great motivation and inspiration from José Gamarra Zorrilla. A native Bolivian, who promoted value of sports throughout the country and the 1970’s led his country to the best sporting results they had ever seen.
Our news makers, now taking on the job of being our virtual travel bloggers got the opportunity to take a virtual trip by Amazon Explore. Our trip was to the Featherwood Sanctuary in Australia. We had fun seeing the sanctuary’s different examples of Australia’s greatest creatures such as koalas and kangaroos.
This virtual tour hosted by Leone was really great for all of us. She was very kind and very experienced about the park and all the animals. We virtually got to experience some great stories about the park, it’s history and all the animals. We saw and learned about the kangaroos, koalas, wombats, Penguins and much more.
What was fascinating to me was that these penguins that live in tropical temperatures. This was all new to me, I thought Penguins could only survive in the cold. Leone explained to us that these penguins have adapted to the climates in Australia. They have a layer of fat, just like the cold weather penguins, but it is not as thick. This allows them to live on land where it tends to be warmer. However, they are also covered in tightly worn feathers that act like a wet suit. These are all the animals we experienced in Australia.
We also really loved the kangaroos as they were able to jump up high, like we had learned about in various books and websites. Seeing them do it in real life was amazing!
Eric’s Fun Facts
Kangaroo Joey’s are the name they call their babies and weigh up to 6 kilograms until they leave the pouch (does anyone know how much 6 kilograms equals? a. 25lbs b. 13lbs c. 3lbs)
Wombats have hard butts used for defense, burrowing, and mating
14 species of penguins can survive in warm climates
When seeing the koalas climb on the trees, it was amazing to see them in action. What we learned was that they use climbing as a powerful tool to get food . They also climb to escape danger. So koala bears are actually super heroes. Imagine if we had those powers? We really do! Dr. Christine has taken all of us out hiking and climbing, so we are on our way to staying fit , reducing stress and being our own super hero!
Nicole’s Creative Visualization
A meditation about Featherwood Sanctuary
Find a calm and comfortable place.
Close your eyes as we begin our journey to Featherwood Sanctuary in Sydney Australia. Take a deep breath in and exhale completely. Let your body relax and your mind settle down as we begin our journey through the luscious green park. As you are walking through the path, you notice the ‘ lily philly’ which is a beautiful fruit that grows through all of Australia. As you breathe in and out you feel your body beginning to relax deeper as you smell the fresh wooded scent of the bamboo trees that surround you. When you reach out to touch them they are so strong, which makes them so resilient to any environmental condition. Christine teaches us to stand tall and be strong always, and if you fall, it is ok, you then begin to pick yourself up. As you breathe in and out, try to stand tall and confident in your strength like a bamboo tree. Even on our worst days, we can find the time to mimic a bamboo tree and stand tall like the mountain pose in yoga.
You feel grounded and strong into the earth as we hear the birds chirping and singing amazing songs they create naturally. You take a deep breath in and out and feel very grateful that you have this opportunity to experience this magic as we continue our creative visualization. As you keep walking through the trees you see the rain drops fall off the leaves, you proceed to reach out and touch the leaf, feeling soft and wet from the natural rain. You breathe in and out as you see this beautiful koala smiling at you. You reach out gently to touch the little bear, his fur is so soft. The koala is smiling as you stroke his fur, and that makes you smile as well. You proceed to walk further as you see a bright yellow banana tree. You pick one, close your eyes, and breathe in and out feeling grateful that this banana tree is able to share it’s fruit with you. You peel the banana and take a big bite, it is so fruitfully sweet. You walk to the end of the park looking at all the amazing animals. At the far end of the park, you realize you are at a cliff and am able to see the waves go up and down. As you feel the wind, you breathe in and out and look at the blue ocean. Realizing from the teachings in the News Makers, life is really like an ocean and we are all here to learn how to surf the waves and to stay emotionally steady and physically fit. You proceed to take one more deep breath in and out, knowing that you can come back to this beautiful sanctuary whenever you wish. Dr. Christine has taught us the art of writing creative visualizations, which actually helps us to calm down and center our minds.

I chose the Koala because I thought it would suit best with the blog. This picture was painted on mixed media paper, fully done with watercolor. I enjoy using all different mediums for my works, but I chose watercolor because it’s efficient, dries quickly, and the colors come out brilliantly.
David’s Rhymes and Rhythms
The wildlife sanctuary was like a zoo
And we even got to see a kangaroo
The momma kangaroo had a joey in her pouch
He was so heavy the momma said ouch
We also saw a koala bear
He was so close as if we were really there
We enjoyed the Featherdale Wildlife park
It had a lot of pairs of animals just like Noah’s Ark

Dr. Christines’ positive take- away
What is not positive about being so close to beautiful animals, that you feel you can reach out and touch them. Our News Makers were thrilled to see these beautiful creatures in Australia and learn about their characteristics and fun facts. The host was exuberant and lovely and was happy to answer all questions. Animals and nature have a way of lifting every ones’ mood. For the isolated, animals can make you happier than most humans. Getting in nature, even virtually can really help shift your mood. Nature has been researched to be one of the best elements to increase mental attitude. What better way than having the opportunity to do it in Australia. Our News Makers had a wonderful excursion.
Cara is our Art Director for The Newsmakers and Autisticana. She experiences our trip, then draws a beautiful illustration of her adventure. She is very talented and utilizes all sorts of mediums in her artistic expression! Here is the artwork she made for our virtual trip to Disney World:
On Wednesday, the Newsmakers completed our very first virtual tour to Disney World in Orlando Florida. We were shown the six parks, which I never heard of before. I was only familiar with a few of them and have visited Magic Kingdom a couple times with my family. As a Disney enthusiast, I would love to visit Blizzard Beach in person because it’s one of the recent water parks to be owned by Disney.
The host of our journey was named Albani. She was very gracious and very helpful in answering all our questions. It was interesting to hear all about the differences between the different parks. We learned about each of them and two of them are waterparks!
The Magic Kingdom is one of the most popular places in Disney World. It’s where the magic begins! Animal Kingdom is the safari park of Disney World. There are so many animals in this park. You can explore all the animals on a safari through the park. Epcot features countries around the world and explores this through rides.There is so much to do to discover the world and explore about these countries while learning and having fun with friends! Hollywood Studios is all about the rides with cool thrills and you can see memorabilia from different films like Toy Story and Star Wars. Lastly, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon are Disney World‘s waterparks.
