    Travel: Elk Island Backcountry

    Elk Island backcountry – for our 8th wedding anniversary celebration we headed out to Elk Island to experience some down time. We hiked, had a fire, neglected to set up our tent when it was nice, got caught in the rain and finished the trip off with a paddleboard. The backcountry camp sites are about 4km from the nearest parking lot – Oster Lake. Check out this huge bison in our way – well, we’re actually on his turf. One of the first things we…

    Travel: 3 Days in Victoria

    Yes, 3 days in Victoria! That’s honestly all you need. This city is less than 100,000 people and it’s easily walkable if the weather is nice. Looking for a place to say? Check out this place in the harbour. We visited Beacon Hill Park and saw so many plants, flowers, and birds – it was so much fun. Plus, a nice needed walk after our hike. Check out how colourful this peacock is – he came right up to us. I’ve heard they can be…

    Travel: Royal British Columbia Museum

    The Royal British Columbia Museum is a great place to spend the morning if you’re out and about in Victoria. Plus, the IMax is usually a fun experience. Royal British Columbia Museum On the day we visited, May 17, it was the very first day of the Mayan Exhibit. Pretty neat seeing as how we just visited Mexico this past winter. Something that was interesting is that on the plaques on the walls, like at most museums, they had little stories. Well, some of them…

    Travel: Victoria Eats

    Victoria eats 2019 – some of our favourite places to eat in Victoria. We had some places we didn’t enjoy so much (Cafe Mexico, Be Love) yet they’d still get a 6/10. Just not worth it in my opinion. All of these places below – at least an 8 or 9, if not 10 out of 10. First up, La Taqueria Pinche Taco Shop. They’re open late and offer some upscale tacos that bring some big flavours. This is the same chain from our Vancouver…

    Travel: Embassy Inn Review

    Staying in the harbour area of Victoria can be expensive, yet it’s worth it for the walk ability around the downtown area. There are so many parks, palaces to see, and delicious restaurants. The Embassy Inn offered a fair value and is a clean hotel. We paid 145$ per night, since I booked back in January and took advantage of the 35% off if I paid at the time of booking. Score! We got a room with two beds since we had all of our…
