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.
We spent our whole Monday and Friday at Disneyland and California Adventure. The last time I went to Disneyland was in Paris, 10 years ago. It sure is the happiest place on earth. Despite the long wait times, every minute is worth it. Being at Disneyland brings out the little kid in us. Everything is wonderful, from the rides, to the parade and the fireworks. It is truly a spectacular experience.
Last week, I visited Los Angeles with my family. It was our first time going to Cali so I was pretty stoked. We tried to explore a lot of places in a span of seven days. Before the trip, I tried to search for places where locals would usually go. But I failed to visit those places and ended up visiting most of the tourist spots. The next few posts will be all about my trip to Los Angeles.
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.
