It’s another beautiful sunny July day in Vancouver. It’s mid week and my friend Jorge is visiting from San Francisco. It’s a workday for most, meaning “S” is hard at it and not able to join us on our outing today. “J” and I were talking last night and hatched a plan to go...Read More
Do you remember when Y convinced me it would be a good idea to hike through a train tunnel on the railroad that runs behind Kamloops Lake? I sure as hell do. Cue Riddick from Pitch Black’s voice now: You’re not afraid of the dark, are you…? The day started...Read More
SYinc spent the May long weekend in the quieter regions of the GVRD as Y was still recovering from his recent accident and the resulting surgery. But what better way to assist in his recovery than a healing walk through the magnificent wild spaces that reside, amazingly, right...Read More
I’ve been happily puttering along with my trusty Nikon D40 for many (many) years now, adding a new lens here or there as friends recommended one or another to me. I have a lot of fun taking pictures on our travels and it’s one of the reasons I started blogging this...Read More
It’s the weekend, it’s Spring, and we can still see snow on the local mountains from the windows of our Gastown loft. Time to hit the hills and use up the last few lift passes left on our Whistler Edge Card! As we’ve two days left on our cards, and not a lot...Read More

My favourite aunt had escaped with family to Hong Kong for a week and had offered us her place in beautiful (SUNNY!) Ladner, British Columbia for the weekend. While technically a house-and-cat sitting gig, it had much more a vacation feel to us. And more importantly, the house...Read More
If you’ve never ‘survived’ a winter in Vancouver, then you may not know the crazy things that a glimpse of sunshine can drive one to do after many wintery months of grey and rain. And if you have, well then pop on over to “Definitely Raining” for a...Read More
Using up our Edge Card discounted lift passes at Whistler. We purchased discounted lift tickets for Whistler again. Although, since we struggled to used up five days last year, we opted for just three this time around. Whistler is one of those so-close-but-yet-so-far places...Read More
Y’s friend, Chris, joined us for another jaunt out to Dog Mountain Viewpoint at one of the local hills. We just had to take advantage of that sun! (rainy Vancouver winters and all) This is a quick and easy snowshoeing option at a Vancouver’s Mount Seymour (a mere 20...Read More
Spring has sprung here in Vancouver and the bright sunshine and vivid colours are reminding me of our hike of the amazing glacier-blue Joffre Lakes. It was a trip that lasted just 32 hours, but provided memories that will remain vivid for a lifetime. In our hunt for less...Read More
Vancouver to Kamloops, Cherryville, Edgewood, Needles, Fauquier, Nakusp, New Denver, Kaslo, Howser, Gerrard, Trout Lake, Nelson & Galena Bay, circling back to Kamloops and then home to Vancouver. Check out our Kootenay Circle Route map for all the places we stopped along...Read More
