posted in: Travel | 2

While my memories are still fresh and lingering on my mind, this post had to be penned soon.

I am sure by now, you would have guessed what this post is all about. Definitely! It is about my recent surprise trip to Victoria arranged by my amazing husband.

Victoria as we all know is the capital city of British Columbia and is situated in southern tip of Vancouver Island. Names after the Queen Victoria from United Kingdom, Victoria happens to be one of the oldest cities with British Settlement. This “Garden City” boasts of its historic buildings like the British Columbia Parliament Buildings and the Empress Hotel.

This city is the best destination to escape from the hurried world if you are approaching a long weekend and living in Canada. Victoria is a perfect weekend getaway offering a  unique blend of old charm with new experiences.


Boasting of the amazing climate, it remains green and beautiful throughout the year. Walking by the harbor and a walk thorough some of the oldest part of Victoria exploring the mysteries and secrets stories behind the city’s hidden history can add on to your experience.
