Exciting news for me, I booked my plane tickets to Victoria, BC continuing my trend of traveling in January to locations with only slightly warmer temperatures than Chicago! Some people go to Mexico or Florida, last year we went to Iceland. Who knows. I do like to bundle up though.
Anyway I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before but my sister and her husband moved there for his Post-Doc with their two beagles. They live a block or two off the ocean – these photos were taken by my sister while walking the pups. Much different than walking them around Chicago! I’m pretty pumped up to spend 10 days with them. The magic of skype and US/Canada cell phone plans have made it much easier to handle the long distance but I’m ready to hang out, eat tons of candy and Nintendo WII vote (something I force them to do), check out Victoria and Vancouver etc. I’m really excited for David’s Tea since they seem to have a lot of interesting combinations I haven’t seen here and get burgers at their favorite place, The Pink Bicycle, since they have gluten free buns. I need to start searching to see what else I want to see while I’m there / where we should go on our shopping day trip to Vancouver!
