Weekend Trip to Vancouver Island

If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, you may already know that I spent this weekend in Victoria on Vancouver Island with my school’s basketball team. The highlight of the trip for me and our team was the behind the scenes tour of the BC Legislature that Keith Baldrey of Global TV graciously gave us.

I’ll do a more comprehensive post on some of the food I ate and the place I stayed but for now, here are a few of my observations of the Island life.

  • First, there seem to be lots of independent coffee shops. I only saw one large chain coffee shop on my trip.
  • Next, I saw more Nissan Leafs in Victoria than I think I have seen anywhere else.
  • Like Nissan Leafs, there seemed to be more people standing outside buildings and smoking.
  • And finally, I found it difficult to find my way around the city because I didn’t have the North Shore mountains as an ever present landmark or bearing point.

More about the McRae Bistro and the Accent Inn later.
