    I remember visiting Terrace, New Aiyansh and Greenville, in Northern BC years ago. A long drive of about 15 hours from Vancouver, just under 1,400 km and multiple stops I will never forget. My father did his residency program in the smaller towns of both New Aiyansh and Greenville, small towns of no more than 2,000 residents each. Located right on the Skeena River with an abundance of nature, it makes for a great way to escape the city life and find solace in the most remote corners of beautiful British Columbia.

  • Fun Family Camping Trip to the Okanagan, British Columbia

    It doesn’t feel like summer until we visit Penticton, the interior of BC where it’s always warmer and where fruit orchards and wineries make for a picturesque summer photo. With our trailer in tow, the average five-hour commute allows us to enjoy the beautiful lush scenery and mountain peak tops until we arrive at Southbeach Gardens RV & Campground, where we have become regulars. Often times the kids will have their tablets and headphones ready for the road-trip, along with pillows and blankets next to them just in case they feel like taking a nap. We would pack fresh fruits, lots of water and some salty snacks to avoid having to make unnecessary stops if someone gets hungry. Continue Reading

    Our Roadtrek at the Rest Stop Outside Hedley

    Recently we took our Roadtrek van on a camping trip "Roadtrekking" through some of the not so well-known but delightful smaller towns in the Okanagan area of the southern interior of British Columbia. The first day, we left the Vancouver area and headed up Highway 1 and the Crowsnest Hwy 3 to Princeton. We spent the first night in the Princeton municipal park campground which has full hook-ups with free Wifi and is located right beside the Similkameen River on Highway 3. It is a great place to stop overnight. Another camping option is the Princeton golf club across the road with free Wifi and firewood for campers. Continue Reading

    Sunnyside Campground Cultus Checking In

    Camping has changed – big time!  Just go to most campgrounds right now and look around.  What do you see?  Hotels!  Yes I said hotels – gone are the modest canvas tents of yesteryear.  Now they have separate entrances, vaulted ceilings, e-ports and solar adapters to charge your electronics.  And some even go as far as having air-conditioning units.

    I stopped into ... Continue Reading
