1. Crusoe grocery shopping

“I might be a superstar of the digital world, but at home I live a pretty regular, low-key, even modest, type of life near Ottawa, Ontario.”

“I also do more chores than I should. Like, I am way too famous to be seen meandering about a third-rate grocery store trying to find whatever the heck ‘two bunches of radicchio’ is?! How about two bunches of this is ridiculous!?”

“I was udderly excited to visit Grindelwald, a region of Switzerland that feels so truly magical it’s like something out of another world.”

“We spent much of our time hiking among the Alps, enjoying the fresh mountain air and gorgeous scenery. As always, I led the adventure, barely staying in sight of the group.”

5. Crusoe on an Italian boat tour in Cinque Terre

“The best way to explore Cinque Terre is by boat. We chose to go with a friendly, very enthusiastic local man named Stefano and his boat the Matilde. Now I know what you’re thinking—how could I possibly NOT be the captain? Well, it was hard for me, but since it was Stefano’s boat, I agreed to be his second sailor in command.”

“I’ve been going to Florida since I was a pup. Nowadays, I spend one to two months there per year. It’s a nice warm escape when I need it; a regular ripe supply of squirrels, guaranteed sunshine, beautiful beaches, and of course, some great fishin.’”
