Walking to Walmart/Uptown mall in 30 minutes!

11:29:00 AM

When we feel like taking a walk in Victoria, we usually take the Galloping Goose trail. There is an access road near our place.

Galloping Goose Trail is a 55 km trail stretch from Victoria to Sooke. You can walk, bike, and run on this trail. Since there are access points every few meters, we sometimes use this to walk to Walmart, Uptown mall, or Mayfair Mall. Very quiet and picturesque. There are waterways, rose bushes, and other interesting sights. There are parking lots along with the access points and anyone can start or end their walk. Source:

Experiencing West Coast Amusement Carnival

11:02:00 AM

We attended our first carnival here in Victoria BC!

It was actually spur-of-the-moment. We left the house at 8 pm and figured 2 hours will be enough to enjoy everything. Since it was almost summer, the sun was just about to set at 8pm!

We arrived at around 8:30 and a kind soul gave us a booklet of tickets for the rides, amounting to  $45! Bless their kind hearts. Still, we weren't able to go to any of the rides with the long lines.  We gave the tickets to friends the following day when we accompanied them. 

Two ladies also gave us a toy while we were lining up for some popcorn! 

Now, about the fair itself? Perya 😁 Pinoys know this and it reminded us of a lot of things back home. Kulang na lang ang sirena at kuneho 😁

Overall an enjoyable experience!
