I’ve been wanting to visit this trestle for a while now. Continue reading
First day in Thailand! We had a wonderful stay in the first Villa we were staying at (where I learnt that you could pay a fee if you flush your own poop!).
We were scheduled to go to another villa closer into town, so we decided to explore and find some lunch before we headed to our next location.
When we arrived to our next villa – we pretty much arrived in paradise to a very beautiful villa called “Jungle Village”. The staff were incredible! To get to the beach and downtown it was only a 10 minute Tuk Tuk ride away where the service was provided. We used that to our advantage.
After unpacking all of our things we headed down to check out the downtown area and beach in our first Tuk Tuk excursion (on the main road)! It was…. well…. fun and smelly? Only because you can smell the exhaust from all the vehicles driving by and also the Tuk Tuk’s exhaust. But totally worth it!
It was weird to sometimes see random single gas pumps in front of people’s houses… but there they were!
The family split up a little bit today – half of my cousins decided to go and shop some more – the other half are visiting old friends – the other half decided to go check out this science museum that caters to children about workplace safety. Yeah I know. There’s an actual SCIENCE MUSUEM for this. Suffice to say, my nephew LOVED IT. He’s obsessed with garbage trucks, dump trucks, and excavators. It was a dream come true.
Decided to head to Whytecliff Park today with my buddy, Adrian. We left a little later than I would have liked as I usually leave around 10/11am to beat the traffic and avoid how busy the park would be.
HAPPY MAY LONG WEEKEND — I’m on the island!!
First thing I did and knew I wanted to do was fly Pooka around town! (well parts of a general area). Considering it was an epic failure flight yesterday (you can watch that video it’s titled “I CAN’T BELIEVE I DID THAT”) after I got off the ferry and understand why I wanted REDEMPTION.
I started out at Cadboro Bay (Gyro Park) (5 minutes away)
It’s been almost a month (I think) since I bought my DJI Mavic Pro drone! And even LONGER since my last post. I should really get back into writing some more!
I haven’t written a mini-blog post in forever! I’m slowly getting back into it.
After a few days of pouring rain in Vancouver (or Raincouver for those of us who live here), the sun finally came out. Not to miss this somewhat otherwise “rare” opportunity before more rainclouds decide to pour in, I joined my friend for a walk along English Bay.
I think the last time I went to Whytecliff Park was in 2009. I had just gotten out of a relationship and I decided to venture off to Vancouver to explore parks and beaches because it was the only thing that helped keep my mind off of things. I guess every one has that same type of vice.
Now 7 years later and living in Vancouver, I went on a spontaneous adventure to West Vancouver. (I originally wanted to go on Saturday, but an accident happened on the main road and so I was detoured. Therefore deciding to just go the next day). Thankfully, the weather was still gorgeous.
I jettisoned off in the late afternoon hoping to arrive a couple hours before sunset.
When I arrived it was pretty much how I remembered it all those years ago: vibrant and calm.
In the middle of my treck up the side of a cliff, I noticed that on top of the tiny rock island across from me there was a couple. The tiny rock island is accessed via along the rocks and boulders that led out towards the island. The water was already elevated to where most of the rocks and boulders were submerged. I think everyone there was wondering when the couple would decide to wade there way back to the beachside.
