Circumnavigating around Vancouver Island is more than just a kayaking trip; it is a voyage of discovery and exploration in our own backyard. Bryan and I love to travel all around the world but of all the places we have visited and dream of visiting, beautiful British Colombia remains one of the most spectacular.
This trip is about the journey of kayaking. Circumnavigating Vancouver Island is the setting for our story of adventure and fun but it will be the journey that writes the story. Our vision of this trip is one of exploration – the growth and development of our relationship as the two of us paddle off into the sunset, the ups and downs of facing challenges and unexpected joys and how we work through difficult times, the amazing places that we’ll experience, the majestic animals we’ll encounter, the wonderful people we’ll get to meet and the fascinating histories we’ll learn.
This kayaking journey is a celebration of Vancouver Island and adventure. In addition to a regular blog, we will also feature west coast foods from notable eateries along the way, wild foods gathered and prepared in the wilderness and also camping foods that we prepared and dehydrated. For the most part, we will be living off the land – fishing and gathering berries for our dinners – and this will be documented on the website. We will also feature interesting places and things to do along the way, such as day-hikes and other top activities to do in a certain place. There will be epic photos, trip tips, gear reviews and so much more. Our aim is that this blog website will become a resource for future paddlers and travellers, both on short adventures and long, on Vancouver Island. We hope to get people just as excited about travelling around Vancouver Island as we are.
