5 Amazing Things To Do In BC This Spring

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Butchart-Gardens-springI was thinking the other day how great the weather was this year. That led me to consider the five things I’d like to do most close to home, here in British Columbia. My list surprised me and I’m pretty sure I won’t get the chance to do all five this year, but I’m determined to do at least one or two, and pick up the rest next year. Of course by then I’ll have another five, or more, to add to the list, after all BC is truly one of the most amazing and special places in the world. (more…)

Wish You Were Here!

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

postcard2When I was young, no seaside holiday in Britain was complete without a trip to a store selling a wonderful array of colourful postcards with scenes of beaches, parks, long piers and sailboats. Greetings from Bognor Regis, or Southend-on-Sea were hastily purchased in the first few days of our holiday and then we’d spend the afternoon writing short messages to our friends and family, “Wish you were here. Weather’s good, water’s cold, got Mum to ride a donkey – so funny. Off to buy ice cream now!” They were like long Tweets really. (more…)

Planning a Road Trip and Involving the Kids

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

family friendly hotel great after a day in the car

My wife and I have always loved road trips, and when our kids were young we did an epic road trip from Victoria to the Okanagan – this was in the early 90s. We had recently emigrated from the U.K. and this was our first vacation in our new country.

It’s funny, I came across the tape the other day and we are considering getting it transferred to DVD. I remember that almost every other minute while taping I would utter the words, “Look at this view, it’s absolutely amazing” interspersed with “absolutely awesome.” It got very tired very quickly. My only excuse was that we had arrived in a country that far exceeded our expectations in terms of sheer beauty, and B.C. appeared to us like something out of a National Geographic magazine – something we only dreamed of ever seeing.
