Travel Blog – Vancouver Island and beyond
I now live on the southernmost part of Vancouver Island in James Bay, the oldest residential neighborhood on the Pacific Northwest. The Lekwungen people roamed these coastal lands for centuries prior to European arrival. They lived in Big Houses together eating fish and camas roots, carving and weaving.
EVBlog is mostly about this Island, Vancouver Island, it’s infinite beauty and secrets, the stories and totem poles, the English gardens and Victorian castles. I will share with you all that I love about this Island, with photos I take, and tips on preparing to be here.
First Nation culture and heritage, the seaside cliffs, the abundance of flowers, historic castles and lighthouses, intrigued me to come and explore #Vancouver Island. You will love it here. The best months to come, I think, are April thru to November. Winter is quiet and spectacular when we get the odd snowfall.
Capital city of British Columbia, Victoria: “I love your shops and restaurants, your English gardens and high tea. Most of all I love the proximity of Victoria to wilderness. #Victoria, BC on Vancouver Island, is a benevolent place showcasing peace, the well being of it’s residents, protecting animals and habitat. Thank you for having it all together: clean streets of hanging flower baskets, humming birds, fresh organic farm food. Peace and natural wholeness. I am aligned with values here and glad I made Victoria my home.
For the past several years I’ve been running EV Tours, a tour guiding company that takes people on fabulous excursions on #Vancouver Island, #Victoria, and #Saltspring Island. Vancouver Island has the warmest climate in Canada and attract visitors from all over the world. My guides and I have a passion for sharing the beauty of the Island and hope to hear from you and to see you here one day soon.
