Wave hello to Victoria!

This past winter, I went to go visit one of my BFFs in Victoria, British Columbia. Victoria is located in western Canada on Vancouver island and has a population of about 300 000 (with a large population of retirees!). The city of Victoria was named after Queen Victoria and still maintains its charmed British history (via historical buildings, cuisine, and culture). We spent three days exploring (very easy to navigate on foot) which gave us plenty of time to see the main sights. Here are some of the photo highlights:


Me and my bestie strolling around Beacon Hill Park.

Provincial Parliament Buildings. Victoria is the capital of the province of British Columbia.

Roger’s Chocolates

I received such a nice surprise in the mail last week from my boyfriend – a box of Roger’s chocolates!! These chocolates are the most delicious chocolates i’ve ever had and a treat to look forward to at Christmas time each year.  Roger’s Chocolates is a Canadian chocolate company based in Victoria, British Columbia which has developed a renowned reputation for its divine chocolates.

Thanks for the chocolates, B!!
