Last year, I had the chance to hike Joffre Lakes, one of the most breathtaking hikes in British Columbia. Since I didn’t get to hike all the way up to the upper lake last time I went, I promised to go back and finish it. I finally accomplished it last week, and it’s still as breathtaking as I remembered.
Hey hey!! Last week, I had a week off from work, and what’s the best way to spend it, than to take a dip in the lake, and enjoy the summer heat. I am fortunate enough to be living in a place who offers such breathtaking views. Buntzen Lake is located just north of Port Moody. What’s interesting about this lake is that it’s man-made. But you won’t even notice it, since the lake is surrounded by beautiful mountains.
There’s nothing more exciting than discovering new places to explore. I recently went on a quick getaway to Vancouver Island, and I was astonished by the places I’ve discovered. Vancouver Island is approximately two hours away from Vancouver. It consists of different cities such as Victoria, Parksville, Port Renfrew and more. Vancouver Island offers endless amounts of experiences and activities for all ages.
One of the main reasons why Spring is my favourite season is because of the beautiful fresh flowers everywhere. And last Sunday, I was invited to have breakfast at one of the tulip fields in the Fraser Valley. They invited a few bloggers to enjoy an amazing morning by the tulips. Waking up early, to have the whole tulip fields all to ourselves was a perfect opportunity for a photo shoot.
Day offs call for a little exploring around Downtown Vancouver. The past few weeks, my work schedule has been so hectic, and it’s been a while since I went out to explore the city. So yesterday, I met up with my good friend Camille and we went around town. Our initial plan was to stroll around, and visit this newly opened coffee shop called Nemesis. Unfortunately, it was already closed when we got to the place.
My friend, Camille (from Captivating Soul) and I, started a series called #Exploring604. Where we explore the streets of the Lower Mainland and share what we’ve discovered on our blog.
So in today’s blog post, I will be sharing about the newly opened 720 sweets branch in Richmond. This branch is located at 1121-8328 Capstan Way, by Bubble World and The Captain Boil. I’ve never been to their Vancouver branch, so I’m really happy when I found out they opened a new branch close to where I live.
