Visiting Family

Beautiful British Columbia


I spent the majority of my childhood in the interior of British Columbia, Canada. What an absolute treasure it was to grow up in the forest surrounded by all different kinds of creatures while spending most of my time at cottages on the lake. My childhood definitely formed a mindset in me, and that is to be one with nature! Nature is what we have and nature is what we are, the laws of life fall into play when you look at nature with an open mind and an open heart. Powerful words and quite profound I know, but these are things that have shaped who I am as a woman. My oldest brother Carol spent years tormenting me and pushing me to my limits with whatever I showed interest in; I thank him for that. To this day I remember the time when we decided it was a fantastic idea to run to the end of the driveway with our ankles tied together… Can you imagine the outcome of this? Laughing as I write this I continue to reminisce and see the glory of the days spent in the wilderness. Now I spend the majority of my time in a cubical or on a treadmill attempting to use my imagination to explore what is on the other side of these four walls. I need to get out more, I think it’s about time I head back to British Columbia.

This song may have had something to do with this posting…


My family lives in quaint little Victoria on Vancouver Island, I may end up taking a trip to see them in the next week or so; coming to that conclusion now already has me excited. I have the vacation pay available and I can basically book time off work as I please, I do miss my mum, so let’s see what happens!

Interested in my reasoning for writing this article? Interested in finding out how I impulsively made the decision to spend hundreds of dollars out of the blue to go and see my family? Don’t let stress take you over, if you need a break, stop and smell the roses.
