Read and rate Travel Journal Entries for Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
Het is 04.00 uur, veel te vroeg dus, zeker als je weet dat we beiden slecht hebben geslapen. Met meer dan 900 km voor de boeg niet meteen het prettigste vooruitzicht. Maar geen geklaag, we moeten erdoor om tot in Tofino te komen en onze trip verder te zetten. Nog voor 05.00 uur zitten we al en route. Het is hier nog steeds bitterkoud en het regent nog altijd. Opletten geblazen in de kronkelige bergen. We volgen de hele weg terug langsheen we in Whistler waren geraakt. Ik kan dus nog even mijn ogen dicht doen, want been there, done...Jump to full entry

Anyway, fortunately I have previously checked in online, so we managed to squeak in.Jump to full entry
Aug 18, 2007 - Island Retreat!
Saturday afternoon, August 18 It's raining. Again. Hearing "rain again" so often, you probably think I'm getting tired of it. Truth is, it's been both refreshing and aggravating! When we're in the car, trying to locate sights, hampered by a deluge of rain falling on the windshield, it is, admittedly, not my favorite thing. On the other hand, the sound of softly falling rain is quite soothing. Makes a body want to slow down, stay absolutely still and enjoy the moment. So that's what I'm doing - listening ... enjoying ... writing. And I...Jump to full entry
