    Finding a Hairstylist

    My search for a hairstylist has finally come to an end! Growing up, I never knew how great it was to get a stable trusted hairstylist. Mom bounced me around to whoever was cheapest and called it a day. Sometimes I would be happy with the cut, and most times I wasn’t. I get why I had this experience, but now that I’m older, I can afford to get a professional that I trust.  Back in Calgary, my hairstylist was Tomomi from Etch. I trusted her a lot. She was able to give me advice on hairstyles I was interested in getting and guided me toward styles that would best match my…

    Victoria, BC – Day 4 Overview

    After 2 nights of bad sleep, I was finally able to get some rest on the third night. How? Well my body was so exhausted from the lack of sleep and walking that I just knocked out on the third night. I woke up, had my breakfast from Crave Bakery and got ready. Since it was my last day at the airbnb, I wanted to make sure I was all packed up before leaving for my adventures. I also wrote up a thank you card for my host. She was a great host and definitely deserved some recognition for it. The Dragon Boat Festival was starting and I definitely wanted…

    Victoria, BC – Day 3 Chinatown

    Day 3 consisted with a lot of walking around. By the afternoon I was pretty exhausted from walking around so much. Instead of walking downtown, I decided to take a bus there. I made sure I was taking a double decker bus because I never been on one before. To my great luck, the bus was indeed a double decker. Ohoh. I managed to get the front seats on the second floor. This tourist couple came up a few seconds before me and was pointing and talking about taking my seat when I left. Lucky for them I was only riding for a few stops. The view from the double…

    Victoria, BC – Day 3 Royal BC Museum

    Museums are one of the things I enjoy visiting when I’m traveling to other places. It’s not for everyone, but for me it works. I love learning about the places I’m visiting and what their history was like so my visit to Royal BC Museum was met with excitement and anticipation. They were hosting a special exhibit where they brought in Woolly Mammoths from Russia. The line for the museum wasn’t long, which was great. I recommend buying the museum pass + movie ticket. The museum has a 6 story screening wall which sounds incredible. Unfortunately, I didn’t bother with a movie ticket. I didn’t realize how special their theater…

    Victoria, BC – Day 3 Overview

    Once I woke up I quickly got ready and rushed to the Wharf so I could watch the water and boats around me while I had breakfast. It was a good morning. I got a few stares from people passing by, but I didn’t mind it. I was hoping to catch some views on seals or otters, but I couldn’t. After breakfast, I wandered the habour in search for another sighting of a starfish. I also didn’t find any.

    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…
