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:
