Travel: Victoria Snapshot
Victoria snapshot – here you go. After hiking the West Coast Trail we spent a few relaxing days sightseeing in Victoria, British Columbia.
We visited the Royal BC Museum, the Legislative Building and a few parks. Oh, and the food – a few hot spots I’ll for sure share in a Victoria Eats post soon.
The neatest thing, though, was mile zero of the Trans-Canada Highway. Such a neat little sign – too cool to miss if you’re ever in the area.
The parks – the trees – the beauty. Victoria is full of so much life and the greenery really shows off just how much rain Vancouver Island gets. We’re not huge fans of rain (thank you Edmonton!) yet the luscious vegetation just might be worth it.
For now check out this photo from around the harbour.
Well, there you have it – a few quick pics from our recent trip to Victoria. Don’t worry, I’ll fill you in on all the things to do, where to eat, and where to stay in a few weeks time.
One thing to note, Victoria isn’t very big. With a population of under 100,000 people, there’s actually quite a lot to do. My guess is since it’s the capital of British Columbia, yet spending 2 days here is just enough time to enjoy the city and get the full flavour of this quaint little island city.
