Tofino, British Columbia.


After having learnt my lesson in Thailand, I was determined to keep my travel schedule flexible and it definitely paid off. When I landed in Canada I hadn’t even heard of Tofino and so had absolutely no intention of visiting. However, the more hostels I stayed at the more buzz there was about Tofino and nearly everyone I met who had been there said that I had to go. Tofino is a 7 hour bus journey North West from Victoria, so I decided that after three days in Victoria, I would spend an additional three days on Vancouver Island in Tofino.

Victoria, British Columbia.


Victoria. British Columbia’s capital. To be perfectly honest with you, I’m still not sure what I made of Victoria. Except whale watching and visiting various different gardens, I don’t think there was all that much to do.

Banff, Alberta.

I hope you’re sitting comfortably with a cup of tea and biscuit as this is going to be a long old post about one of my favourite places in Canada.

Diane and Bear (the owners of the Ranch) own 180 acres of land, 4 dogs, 2 cats and 60 horses, with Summer camps on over the months of June through to August, it’s safe to say that they often need as much help as possible.

My poor long lost blog. How I have neglected you. All my empty promises to try harder to post more have been unsuccessful and a little thing called life keeps getting in the way… However, I am currently sat on a Greyhound bus, 6 hours into a 16 hour coach journey and I couldn’t think of a better time to write a post. I’m looking forward to catching you up on what I’ve been up to including my trips to Dublin, Poland, Germany, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and maybe I’ll even get round to finishing my posts on India and Bali from last year (oops). However, if you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t follow me you can follow me @stephaniezoerogers) you will know that I am currently in Canada!
