Canada’s Wonderland(s) – Vancouver Island & The Yukon

Wow. That’s all I can say after this incredible journey to these two amazing places. Game changing for me in terms of future travel. Just being amongst all that beauty was so calming and rejuventating. Trees, lakes, animals and mountains: nature’s medicine. Both were beyond my expectations in every way, and perhaps are food for thought for my ‘retirement years’! Good weather was on my side as well. Always a bonus! *Featured pic is en route from Port Alberni, BC to Tofino. An exquisite drive.

Lake Superior has been #1 on my bucket list for a few years now. Having now gone up and experienced it, it’s renewed my love of northern Ontario and the expanse of this great province.

Northern Exposure (part 1) – Killarney Provincial Park

Heading off for a summer cottage and camping trip is an exciting prospect. One always prays for good weather! I have a history of being the ‘curse’ of bad weather and this trip didn’t disappoint. BUT…with bad weather comes amazing sunsets and sunrises, cloud porn and skies that change on a dime. We did end up getting a couple of days of sun, but I wouldn’t have given up the experience to see how the world turns via these skies for anything. Not to mention good times are not measured by weather, but who you’re with. And that’s the key to a great holiday! Stay tuned for Part 2, Lake Superior!
