Land without Limits - The Cariboo-Chilcotin-Coast Region of British Columbia, Canada (Episode #606H)

KQED Life: Fri, Feb 12, 2016 -- 10:00 AM

It may seem hard to say, but this little known region of British Columbia, Canada offers travelers a world of adventures. "Land Without Limits" is the areas' slogan, and, in this case, it's right on target. From the ocean to the mountains, Joseph crosses the region having experiences that range from smoking salmon with the First Nations Nuxalk people, fishing for prawns with local fisherman, hiking through the wilderness to Canada's third highest waterfall and stepping back in time at the roaring gold rush town of Barkerville. Throughout the journey Joseph comes face to face with the region's expansive, remote beauty and wildlife that includes hundreds of species of birds, Grizzly and Black Bears, as well as a mother moose and her calf. It's an adventure without limits that is close to home.

Tokyo, Japan - Celebrating The Past and Present (Episode #707H)

KQED Life: Tue, Feb 9, 2016 -- 11:00 PM

Like every other first time visitor, Tokyo's idiosyncratic pop culture, flashy neon-lights, garish billboards and hoards of people threaten to overwhelm Joseph's sensibilities, yet it doesn't take long for this episode to find its cultural center. Ancient temples, revered practices, natural beauty and graceful personal exchanges take the lead as this episode unfolds. On his Tokyo journey Joseph learns that while the glitz and glamor of modern Tokyo excites the senses, the heart and soul of the Japanese is found in their ancient customs and honored traditions.

San Antonio's Fiesta - Ole! (Episode #812H)

KQED 9: Sat, Feb 6, 2016 -- 8:00 AM

Joseph and Julie travel to San Antonio, their favorite Texas town, for eleven days of parades, music, food, dance and celebration. During their stay they share their individual and mutual San Antonio stories. With more than 100 events and three million people attending, Fiesta is San Antonio's biggest party. Yet, it's a party with a purpose. Fiesta honors history, customs and traditions and is, above all, a celebration of community. Fiesta events benefit more than 100 non-profit organizations, which in turn aid San Antonians of every sex, age, race, creed and heritage. Viva Fiesta!

A San Antonio Christmas (Episode #711H)

KQED Life: Fri, Feb 5, 2016 -- 11:00 PM

San Antonio is a festival town and Christmas is a most festive time of year. Joseph joins the locals and visitors to celebrate the season along San Antonio's famous river walk surrounded by songs, decorations and plenty of holiday cheer. Yet San Antonio is more than the River Walk, and Christmas in San Antonio means more than twinkling lights. In San Antonio, faith is real and "Feliz Navidad" is heard more often than "Merry Christmas." So, Joseph explores the city's spiritual roots at festive events like Mission San Jose's Mirachi Mass, as well as Christmas and Chanukah events held at the historic La Villita in the Arneson River Theater. The real meaning of Christmas is most evident when he gathers with San Antonio families in their homes to honor their heritage and practice their customs in traditional ceremonies such as the Tamalada - holiday tamale making - and in the city's San Fernando Cathedral at the midnight Serenada for the Virgin of Guadalupe.

His path takes him from the monasteries of Lake Tana, the largest lake in Ethiopia, to the castles of King Fasiladas in Gondar, to the stelaes of Axum and the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela. There are World Heritage sites and surprises galore as Joseph traces the lineage of Ethiopia's kings back to the days of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. In the ancient town of Axum he stands at the threshold of the chapel where Ethiopians believe the Ark of Covenant is housed. In Lalibela he prays with a pilgrim before visiting a local school that is being supported by children in the United States.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada - Bonjour, Montreal (Episode #706H)

KQED Life: Tue, Feb 2, 2016 -- 11:00 PM

"Bonjour" means good day in French and it is always a good day in the French speaking Canadian province of Quebec, especially in the lively cosmopolitan city of Montreal. By taking to Montreal's streets, neighborhoods, natural places and waterways, Joseph discovers that joie du vivre is not just a French phrase; it's a way of life in Montreal. And summer is the time for celebrating. From music and dance to fireworks and circus acts, festivals abound! In addition, to the official celebrations every one of the scores of cultural neighborhoods throws a party! Extraordinary markets, majestic cathedrals, trendy cafes, the Latin quarter, a 70's era drum circle, activities on the St. Lawrence and warm fun-loving people all add up to a joyful time in Montreal.
