We got a mail from this Finnish/Canadian woman already while we were in Asia, asking if we’d like to stay at her place for a bit on Vancouver Island. We said yes to that, and ended up saying almost a month.
So far we’ve done all sorts of yard work, from digging up an old sewer pipe to demolishing a shed. And also some inside work, as she is in the process of renovating the house. It’s been interesting and the food has been really good. Mostly organic and very fresh local stuff
We are staying in Duncan, which is a quite small place, but there are lots of events happening around town. Christophe is playing football twice a week with the locals. Every Saturday there is the local market as well, where we always get some good bread and baked stuff.
There are a few hikes around. So far we only did a hike at Mt Tzouhalem. It was really nice and we could see the snowy mountaintops in the US. See pictures below. It’s been really nice to just relax in a nice place after the hectic Asia experience.
