Decided to skip the Buchart Gardens. Supposedly very beautiful but not paying $25 person plus $10 transportation to see flowers that are everywhere in Victoria. The Empress Hotel (where my sister, Sandra, had high tea on her visit last year) and the Parliament building are beautiful and lit up at night. 3 cruise ships in Victoria today so very crowded plus Canucks won again and celebrations are beginning. Leave Monday on 9.5 hr bus ride to north island town of Port Hardy. We catch a 13 hr ferry on Tuesday to Prince Rupert which is supposedly spectacular.

- After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 100 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.
