My New Favorite Waterfront Town

I visited my friend Simone in Victoria BCAs I resume blogging after quite some time off (starting your life over can really zap your energy!), I find myself smack in the middle of sharing my visit with my friend Simone in charming Victoria BC, her hometown. Simone is a fellow writer and blogger, and I just love her. She came to Vegas a few times and stayed with me, so I was thrilled to get to visit her!

My favorite part about Victoria is that it sits on the waterfront – it is actually the largest town on Vancouver Island, off the west coast of Canada. To get there, I flew into Vancouver and bought a bus/ferry ticket at the airport (it was very easy). The ferry ride to Victoria was stunning, so I was excited to take a ferry ride around Victoria.

Make Your Way to Charming Victoria

Simone Paget Victoria

My friend Simone, taking me on a walking tour of her neighborhood in Victoria.

When my friend Simone left the cosmopolitan city of Toronto to move back home to adorable Victoria, I knew I had to visit as soon as I could. Simone is the funniest writer I know, covering all topics related to men and dating, like this hilarious “review” of bad online dating profiles. In fact, we spend so much time gossiping about bad dates, time flew by without my writing about our trip. Now it’s March. And here in California, my dog walk has become overcome with blooming flowers – spring is here! It’s reminded me of last summer, when it was still warm up in Vancouver and Victoria. So it is finally time to share! I know that the quaint town will charm you as much as it did me.

Daydream of the Week: Victoria

Downtown Victoria BCOne of my favorite little getaways I had the pleasure of taking this year was to charming Victoria BC off the coast of Vancouver, to visit my friend of Simone. We spent the first two days just wandering around downtown, visiting one quaint block after another. I loved how everything centered around the vibrant center, which was filled with shoppers, live music, and people just passing the time. It was just what I needed after a few busy weeks in Vegas! No agenda, no schedule, just two girlfriends catching up. I enjoyed the ferry ride into town on the calm, gorgeous waters off the southern coast of Vancouver, and then our relaxing few days being tourists in Simone’s hometown, eating good food, and going out for drinks.

If I had it my way, I would have weekends like that one a lot more often!

Daydream of the Week: Water, Water, Everywhere

WaterI can’t wait to live near the ocean again, when I move to San Francisco this fall. A water baby Pisces who grew up mostly in Florida and moved to Vegas from Coco Beach, Costa Rica, I have always craved the ocean. Now, after three wonderful years in the desert of Las Vegas, the water fairies are calling me back. After an amazing trip to Seattle and a quick weekend in San Francisco, I am now up in Victoria. My favorite part of the island so far? Right… The water… My camera died right after taking my one obvious shot of nothing but water while traveling with my friend Ethan¬†on the ferry from Vancouver to Victoria. Today, my friend Simone and I are headed back to the harbor for a day of sightseeing. I am so excited to spend the day on the water and want to scream from the rooftops that I will again be near the ocean.

 

I am moving to California!!
