Ultimate Vegan Guide to Victoria, BC CANADA

Image
Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia, the most western province of Canada. It is located on the southern end of Vancouver Island. Victoria is a great city which is lucky enough to have some of the best weather in Canada. The winters are mild and the summers are a comfortable temperature as well. Victoria is the biggest city on Vancouver Island. The greater Victoria area has a population of about 344000 so a fair size but not as large as Vancouver.

Why You Should Go:

There are plenty of cool areas to visit in Victoria such as Fernwood, James Bay, Cook Street Village, Oak Bay and the Downtown. The downtown area has many great shops, restaurants and sights to see such as the waterfront with the legislature building, Royal BC museum and totem poles. There are often lots of gigs to see and there are annual music festivals Rifflandia and Ska Fest. If you are a fan of beer then you will like the local breweries such as Philips, Vancouver Island Brewery and others. Victoria is also…

Rocky Mountain House National Park, Alberta

After making it through Banff National Park which was incredible we made it to Rocky Mountain House National Park. We stopped there to check it out before it closed and ask if they knew of any good camping in the area. We saw some Bison in the field. It's pretty hard to see them because they were a bit too far away. It turned out that there was camping at the park and it was reasonably priced as well. Only $15.70! We took a walk around the park. The park is the sight of a fort used back in the day of the early settlers and fur traders. There were some different trails to take and see what life was like for the Metis settlers and fur traders. There was a historical interpreter that told us a little about Metis life and talked to us a little bit about our road trip. The trapper tents were replicas of what the tents looked like for the early settlers to give you an idea of how they lived. There were signs everywhere giving more information on the site.

We started off our new series 'Spotlight' with Birmingham!

No we aren't talking about Birmingham Alabama. We are talking about good old Birmingham, England. We lived there for two years 2015-2017 and it was two of the most amazing years of our lives. We met a lot of great people, ate some amazing food, explored the city until we could not explore any further. Now we want to share all of the things we love about Birmingham with you. Join us the fourth Sunday of every month for our latest spotlight series.

Yoho National Park, British Columbia

Travel Diary
After driving through Glacier National Park and Roger's Pass we arrived in Yoho National Park. The drive continued to be very scenic and entertaining. There were lots of winding roads up and down to keep driving interesting.

We were looking for good campgrounds in the area to camp at and there were a few to choose from. We continued driving towards the National Park Campground. We made it to Kicking Horse Campground which had showers and washrooms. It was under $30 to camp there so cheaper than some of the other campgrounds we were finding. It was self registration so we had to fill out a form with our credit card number to pay for the site and put it in a payment box since we didn't have any cash. One of the campers was driving out of the campground and told us that there was a Grizzly Bear roaming around the campground and to be careful.  We made sure to keep our eyes out and be bear safe with all our food. It was a really nice campground but it was pretty busy.…
