Not one thing you mention is ridiculous!

I am a pretty regular guy with a sense of adventure and a disdain for the "been there, done that" style of gotta do everything or else I'll die, kinda travel ethos......
I bicycled western europe, western usa and even victoria/tasmania/so australia. I've lived in AUS and in CH (Switzerland). Train traveled in europe staying in hostels or local, simple hotels.
I am saving money to tr...rself lots of time to spend in areas instead of burning your passport pages - it's that quality versus quantity way of travel. the best times of my travels were the unplanned or those days i spent a bit longer in a place. Desparation or franticism is a language understood around the world, and often, it is spoken by an american tourist.
have a blast and don't take any advice too seriously!

  • Avatar lawgirl_x Where are the best places to live in Victoria, BC?

    Hi, my partner and I are hoping to move from the UK to Canada. Ideally we're looking for somewhere as warm as possible, and my research tells me this is likely to be Victoria (unless anyone has any other ideas?). Can anyone recommend some good places to look at moving to Victoria? We want a nice, pretty, clean area with good transport links into the city for work. Also, although this isn't a necessity, it would be great to be in close proximity to a nice beach... Any ideas or information will be much appreciated!

    • I also really want to move to Victoria someday. I looked into some areas around there I decided, I'd really like to live right on the ocean by Victoria in View Royal. I want to get a job and move there after I finish college. They have some decent starter condos near the harbor in Victoria for about $120,000-$150,000.
