    Vancouver - London

    June 29, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    At lunchtime we went to a shopping mall just near the airport. We bought a few bits then headed to the airport for our 6pm flight to Heathrow. Sitting back in our seats, thinking back on this fantastic trip.Read more

    Vancouver, British Columbia

    June 28, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Today we had to take the bike to the airport. Everything went smoothly. We were told that we'd need an agent to clear at Heathrow customs which we didn't know about, and had the attitude of 'let's worry about it when we get home'. We then took ourselves off into Vancouver. We needn't have bothered because it's not the nicest of cities. We killed time and in the evening we went out for pizza.Read more

    Richmond, British Columbia

    June 26, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We left Victoria in the morning and traveled to Schwartz to catch the ferry over to Richmond in Vancouver. The crossing took about 1hr 40mins. The first half was so pretty as the ferry voyaged through the islands. As we arrived in Vancouver we realised we still had too much petrol in the tank. We took a small detour as we need to get the tank to less than a quarter. We are staying in a cheap accommodation in the Chinese district. We went out in the evening for a walk. It's a huge Chinese community here with loads of shops and restaurants. We noticed a big busy restaurant and decided to eat there tomorrow.Read more

    Victoria, Vancouver Island

    June 25, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    This morning we went on a whale watching trip. Unfortunately we had to travel a long distance by boat for a quick glance at killer whales. We also saw harbour seals on the rocks. Disappointed that we didn't see more whales but that's luck of the draw. In the evening we walked to the harbour and shops.Read more

    Victoria, Vancouver Island

    June 24, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    When we left this morning it was chucking down with rain. It's the first time it's rained in about 10 weeks. After about 45 minutes the rain eased up and the rest of our journey to Victoria was cooler and cloudy. The roads were busy the south we rode. Arriving in Victoria was a pleasant suprise. A nice harbour city with plenty of choice of restaurants and shopsRead more

    Tofino, Vancouver Island

    June 23, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We spent the day in Tofino, a nice little coastal town. We went on a walk through the rain forest to a nice beach. Bit too nippy to stay on the beach but the walk was still nice. We had fish and chips for dinnerRead more

    Vancouver Island, Canada

    June 22, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    We left our hotel in Squamish about 9am and headed for the port of Horseshoe Bay. We didn't have to book tickets, just turned up and paid. The crossing was calm and took about an hour and a half. First impressions of the island were disappointing, poor roads and scruffy looking. We crossed the island to stay in Tofino for 2 nights.Read more

    Squamish, British Columbia, Canada

    June 21, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Today we travelled from Kamloops to Squamish along route 99 which goes through the towns of Pemberton and Whistler. Such an unexpected beautiful route through the mountains. Still hot and sunny. Yesterday we travelled from Jasper to Kamloops and the temperature was 39cRead more

    Icefields Parkway, Alberta, Canada

    June 18, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    We took this route through the mountains from Banff to Jasper. Stunning scenery on a glorious sunny day. Unfortunately it's a tourist route and very busy on the road. We only saw 1 bear on the verge but was riding too fast for photos. Arrived at our hotel in Jasper late afternoon. We are staying here 2 nights for rest and relaxation. Getting very tired now.Read more
