    7: On the road

    September 11, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Waking up in Chilliwack and after a good filling breakfast we went on the road. With a good tip from the lady at the desk from the hotel we took another route to Kelowna, which was worth the extra time it took us. We knew this day would be a long one on the road, but the scenery was breathtaking. The road lead us throught EC Manning Provincial Park and Okanagan valley to Kelowna. After a 5 hour drive, with only stops for gas and switching seats, it was time to take a break on a rooftop terrace at Kelowna. We had some beers and salads with a very nice view at the harbour of Kelowna. Unfortunately we were a bit on a schedule and had to continue our drive to Barrière. So we went throught Vernon, to Kamloops where we made a pitstop for some groceries and diner. After this it was pretty dark, so our last part of the road trip we couldn't enjoy the beautifull outdoors.Read more

    Too hot... we're off

    May 15, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    The Okanagan valley fulfills its claim - the warmer, dryer and fruitier part of Canada. We arrived to lakes, girded by orchards and vineyards, and a myriad of rocky slopes.

    Despite being steep and rocky in many parts on both sides of a 100-kilometre lake, It's an amazingly productive area. It seems like every pocket of land is given to growing something.

    The farmers of past generations were resilient in harnessing the soil, adding water [of which there is plenty] and producing. With the bonus of a milder Canadian climate, spring comes earlier and summer is longer, giving a more longer growing season.

    If you are into wine, fruits or golf, you’d love Osoyoos (say that 3 times quickly) to Vernon, towns at the bottom to top of the Okanagan Valley. Kelowna is the capital, where we spent one night in an apple orchard RV park.

    BUT for us when it got to 31 degrees was just too hot. We didn't come here for Brisbane temps, so our two night stay was shortened and off we went to greener, cooler pastures. A half hour's drive saw us again back in snow at 1700m.

    Our new town for the night, Princeton, a small country hideaway on Highway 3, famous for.... [I'll get back to you on that one!] Another day well spent!!

    May 17, 2017 in Canada ⋅

    Es war ein toller Tag, den wir bei strahlendem Sonnenschein in Kelowna verbracht haben. Kelowna ist mit fast 120'000 Einwohnern die größte Stadt am Lake Okanagan. Durch die starken Regenfälle der letzten Tage ist der Wasserspiegel vom Lake Okanagan so stark angestiegen, dass an den Ufern die Stadt mit Sandmauern geschützt werden muss.Read more

    Up in the sky

    June 29, 2017 in Canada ⋅

    Heute wurde es richtig spannend!
    Nach dem Frühstück auf dem Wasser bei blauem Himmel ging es in Richtung Kelowna, um dort Parasailing zu machen. Das war so ein Spaß!
    Abends wurde mit weiteren Freunden von Angie und Rob gegrillt. Es gab leckere Maple Burger ☺
    Abends mal wieder ein wunderschöner Sonnenuntergang am Okanagan Lake 😍Read more

    Happy Canada Day!

    July 1, 2017 in Canada ⋅

    Heute war Canadas 150. Geburtstag!
    Gestartet mit einem perfekten Brunch auf dem Wasser mit Angie und Rob und deren Freunden  Robyn und Chris, ging es in Richtung Kelowna Downtown. Für den Canada Day wurden dort extra Buden aufgebaut. Die Leute waren alle total im Kanada-Fieber mit rot-weißen Klamotten, richtig toll. :)
    Danach ging es zurück aufs Boot zum Sonnen und Relaxen. Es ging wieder aufs Speedboot und es wurde gesurft jedoch nur von Chris. Zum Dinner wurde zur anderen Seite des Ufers gefahren, um dort an einer süßen Strandhütte einen Burger zu essen.
    Vollendet wurde der Tag mit Nachtbaden um 23:00 Uhr.

    July 30, 2016 in Canada ⋅

    Feeling like 'Knokke' here, but nice city near the lake but feels a little bit made, with too green lawns. And it is very warm here. Boiling in my van without airco. At least they have a lot of wines and beers here. Sticked to just a beer.
