This week I went to Victoria, BC. This is partially why I have been MIA for almost a week.
I saw a lot of gorgeous architecture.
I ate a LOT of good food. I wanted to ensure that I experienced Victoria for their food, and didn’t want to eat anything I could eat in my hometown. I found a flyer for a vegan restaurant and asked two locals how to get there. 20 minutes later I was eating some amazing vegan food.
I stumbled upon the most amazing Mexican cafe after deviating from the tourist area.
This burrito was almost $10, but it was so incredibly heavy and stuffed with so much amazingness, I had to save 1/4 for later. SO.GOOD.
I needed something sweet to wash it down, so I found another cafe that sold vegan brownies.
I also stumbled upon the tea store I see all over the Candian bloggers pages. There are only like 4 of these in the states, but the closest to me is California. It was more fun to see it in Canada anyway.
Canadian friends I need your help..what is this?
It was some kind of squishy looking fruit. It almost looked like lychee.
The main part of this getaway was to “relax.” I spent WAYY too much money on a hot stone massage, but I tried it once and now I know.
I came home with a small bottle of Canadian maple syrup, and I can’t wait to give it a test drive on some pancakes or waffles. Or maybe I can just drink it straight from the bottle.
I loved this town. It was calm, quiet, simple, and the location was gorgeous. The cafe’s and food were perfect and I never struggled to find good food. What better way to experience a new area than by tasting it? See ya soon Canada!
Q: How do you like to experience a new area? Walking the streets, and tasting the eats!
