We live on Saltspring Island in British Columbia,Canada and are usually here from late fall until the end of May. In the summer we can be found at West Hawk Lake near Lake of the Woods.
We try to do active holidays that require training in advance of the trip. Staying moderately fit seems to be easier if you are preparing for a specific objective such as hiking the Coast to Coast Trail etc.
The Travelblog website is very helpful when planning a new adventure because you can almost always find a blog by someone who has been where you want to go. Thanks to all the other helpful bloggers.... full info
