A Perfect Balance!
While Port Townsend seemed a bit on the quiet side, Victoria seems the perfect balance among city life and castles and gardens and nearby small towns and trails and of course, one of your fabulous lighthouses. Love the stories of your arrivals, and glad this was memorable in a good way. Happy travels!

Thanks as always for following along, Tara. We liked Victoria. It was a really nice city with really nice people. We've been in our new town for about a week now and are planning some bigger adventures soon!

This is the Kinsol Trestle. It was used by Canadian Railroad for years but when the railroad closed the BC government rebuilt it and made it park of a network of hiking trails. It is really high and unique in places that we have been. Definitely worth stopping at if you're in the area. Thanks for reading, Ake!

Beautiful photos as usual!
This place is breathtaking! I agree with a previous comment; this place wasn't on my radar, but it is now! When would you say is the best time to go weather-wise? I love how you've described the arrival to different countries, and I agree that the arrival can be very memorable. I did Machu Pichhu and Cambodia half way by train, which were both long beautiful rides. I've never done a ferry ride but it seems very interesting!

Nice compliments that are appreciated! Victoria is nice all year and has a very nice climate as it is near the ocean. I would go during the summer, it you were looking for a break from the heat somewhere else. The temperatures are very nice and you could even need a sweatshirt or sweater at night. Thanks for following along!
