A Day in Beautiful Victoria, BC (June 9, 2012)

Traveled alone to Victoria on my last weekend in Canada last June 2012. It was a lot of fun!

Going to Victoria

Took the Sky Train from Robson Street to the BC Ferries. Boarded the Spirit of Vancouver for the one hour ride to Victoria.

The Butchart Gardens

My first stop was The Butchart Gardens. What an awesome place!

Almost there!

Japanese garden

Threw some coins in the different bodies of water around the garden and made wishes. I hope some at least one of them comes true!

I could stay at the garden the entire day, but it was already 2:00 PM when I finished and there were so many other places to visit in Victoria.

Waiting for Bus 75x for my next stop, Castle of Craigdarroch

Here’s a preview of the castle. Will post next batch of pictures next time 🙂
