    Victoria, BC – Day 2 Butterfly Gardens

    Ahh the Butterfly Gardens. I think this one was the disappointing event I went too. Sure, there was butterflies, but I expected more especially since the insect is part of the building’s name. Admission was 16 dollars for an adult. At first I didn’t think it was too bad because I expected at least an hour of content. I finished walking around the building within 30 minutes and struggled to keep busy for the next 20 minutes before leaving. What did surprise me was that it had more than just butterflies. It had frogs, turtles, tortoises, tropical birds and flamingos. When I first entered the gardens I almost stepped on…

    Victoria, BC – Day 2 Butchart Gardens

    I’m very glad I woke up very early to high tail it to the gardens. I left airbnb at 9am. By the time I got to the gardens it was 10:30am and there was tour buses and other groups arriving as well. I don’t like crowds very much, but for some reason, I was pretty calm in this place. Unfortunately, I didn’t check my battery level in my camera the night before so I ended up having one bar of battery life left for my garden trip. I was surprised how long it lasted me. The camera lasted two hours before dying on me completely. Luckily, I finished my trip…

    Victoria, BC – Day 2 Overview

    Time for day two! I woke up pretty early for today because I didn’t rest well the night before. The airbnb place I was staying at was an older house, so I wasn’t used to the loud heater turning on at night. Also I sleep with a nightlight, so the darkness in my room freaked me out. I ended up turning on the lights and opening the window to allow the night sounds to creep inside my room. It’s very comforting to sleep to the sound of crickets. Day two was packed with a trip to Butchart Gardens and the Butterfly Gardens. I made myself a peanut butter and jam…

    Victoria, BC – Day 1 Fisherman’s Wharf

    The Fisherman’s Wharf was one of the areas that I desperately wanted to see. Partly because of their floating houses. I even allowed this attraction to affect my decision on where to stay for airbnb. My airbnb was literally 3 minutes away from the Wharf. When I was dropped off from my amazing afternoon with my family friends, I decided to go to the Wharf for some dinner. Alana recommended me to try out the curried mussels at The Fish Store, which I decided to do. They were delicious. Mussels are one of my favourite seafood item to have. It was so long since I had them as well so…

    Victoria, BC – Day 1 Overview

    What’s up guys? As a whim I decided to take a 4 day vacation to Victoria, BC. I was tired of where my life was going during this summer. I couldn’t get a part time job, nor did I have any other commitments to uphold. Therefore, I decided to take some time off for myself and leave the city. Hence, Victoria, BC. I figured it would be a easy relaxing trip by myself, which it was. The night before my flight was pretty relaxing. I had packed a few days before so I was prepared, so I thought. I realized that the airline only allowed 2 carry ons; one personal…
