Hello again friends! I hope that your week has been flowing smoothly along!
SO!! Where we left off, My Love and I had just traveled for four hundred years, arrived in Victoria, checked into our hotel and called it a night.
Saturday started with a sweat sesh with T-Horts;
And a little chill sesh with this guy;
We then got all dressed and ready, and set out to see the town!
On our way into town, I noticed that our hotel was very close to this street;
We passed by the Parliament building, where there was a rally going on. My Love was with them;
And I was excited to see the Empress Hotel;
Then we were excited together;
I wanted to get a map, so we headed to the information centre. We had been told by several people that whale watching was the thing to do in Victoria, so after we collected our map of town, we decided to indulge;
China town was the next stop on our list.
That was because I had a feeling that my very favorite food would be available. I was correct;
My Love and I took our loot back to our hotel to defrost, and it was on to more exploring! I wanted to take My Love to this little vegan buffet that I went to last time I was in Victoria. It was found in a cool little street;
In a place called Market Square;
Which is like a mall with no ceiling! This is what it looked like inside;
We were disappointed to find out the place was closed down. So we did the next best thing and went to Cafe Bliss, which is Victorias raw vegan spot!
There were so many awesome options. I got my beloved Green Medicine;
My Love got a strawberry cashew ice cream mylk shake;
And we split a green salad. It had sea weed, house made kim chi, beet, pear, seed crackers, a ginger dressing and greens. I just wanted the greens and kim chi!
We saw this on the way out;
I then snaffued My Love into walking around the Christmas Store!! It is AMAZING;
It is owned and operated by an old Russian man, who hates all the people who go into his store. Let us just say he is NOT filled with the spirit of Christmas. One of his rules is that you may not, under and circumstance, take pictures inside the store. We, of course, were law-abiding citizens.
These eggs were un-real!
This is to commemorate Baby Sisters late fish Dumpling. He was not a very good fish, but he was cool to look at;
After that, My Love was feeling a bit peckish, so we looked inside the many gelato stores for some sorbetto. Here is what we found;
Not in the mood for ice cream, we wandered a little further up the street and saw these;
They were nice, but again we were not in the mood. Instead we decided to chill with The Buddha;
He was to be found at a place called Teaopia. It was such a neat little shop! My Love got himself a cocoa chai roobois, and I got a fruity herbal tea called Iced Princess, because that is what I am;
When was the last time you took a mini holiday? Where did you go? What did you do?
