Good Times, Good Memories of the PNE

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

The fair at the PNE VancouverWell it’s that time of year again when the Fair at the PNE is happening in Vancouver.  This time of year means that you not only have the fun rides that Playland offers, the PNE means the addition of concerts & performances, exhibits, attractions and lots of great food! Although I grew up Victoria, the PNE coming to Vancouver was still a highlight of every summer. In fact the PNE used to give passes to all the school kids in Victoria (my home base as a kid) to remind and encourage us to “take our parents”. (more…)

Get Your Blood Pumping in Kamloops

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

BC has the best golf coursesOk sure Kamloops has lots of “refined” and “relaxing” things to do while you visit. There’s the great music festivals,  the symphony, taking in a play, fly-fishing, tubing down the river, sunning on the beaches and even incredible golf courses. Although if you golf with me I wouldn’t call that relaxing (fore……).  These are all wonderful things indeed,  but what if you feel the need for a little excitement or adrenaline? Well of course you could visit one of the local ranches and try and ride an unbroken stallion (highly unlikely) but Kamloops offers several more practical options. (more…)

Hitting the Beach in Kelowna

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

“Hey” can you spot Ogopogo out there!

One wonderful thing about Kelowna B.C. (besides the fact that it has an Accent Inn) is that it’s located next to one of the most beautiful lakes in the Northwest. Okanagan Lake is approx. 110 kms long and when you visit Kelowna, you’re roughly in the middle. A lake of this size, in one of the warmest areas of B.C. is perfect for just about anything. Avoiding your mother in-law or that cousin that just won’t leave you alone… It evens hosts a lake “monster” Ogopogo. No really it does! I tried to get it to eat my cousin when I was little but alas, it must be a vegetarian. (more…)

Wineries on Vancouver Island?

Friday, July 19th, 2013

When we talk about “experiencing local”  we want to take you beyond the usual, the expected and the traditional. When visiting Victoria B.C. we highly recommend taking in some of the more well-known attractions or activities such as visiting the Butchart Gardens, have an exhilarating ride with Eagle Wing whale watching tours or perhaps a wonderful kayak day tour with Ocean River Sports.  But then there’s the not so well known… Victoria and Vancouver Island have some award winning, scenic and downright tasty wineries.
