... a year". I desperately wanted to ask how they prepare for "Iceberg on the starboard bow!" but managed to restrain myself. They probably just watch the film.
Victoria is splendid if you can manage to get past the Garricks Head pub, the buses with Union Jacks all over them and the Britsh Candy Shoppe. It is actually very easy to get past them and find yourself in one of the nicest small cities I have visited in a long ...
Never posted any pic's on my blog yesterday, too busy running around trying to take in as much as I could in the short time I was in Seattle. Only arrived there yesterday, late afternoon, & left 8am again this morning on the ferry, 3 hrs on the water up to Victoria the Capital of Vancouver Island. Tomorrow morning it's off to Whistler for 3days/nights before returning to Vancouver next Sat for 2 nights/days. Then the long haul home on Sunday aft. Arrive back in Perth on ...
... that was a highlight even though our driver was a grump and seemed to not give a toss but that didn't matter as the trip was fantastic...needless to say he didn't get a tip :-)
Lunch was in the Don Mee Restaurant, 538 Fisgard Street China Town, although it was recommended (not by Robert) it was ordinary.

- 9one9 on Yates is a good place to attend events. I went to adventure club rave and Zed's dead here. Pendulum, Odesza and other entertainment were also played during my stay.

... I got a scoop of berry cheesecake ice cream and they put a waffle cone triangle as a garnish. It was AMAZINGLY delicious but also about $5-6 for just the one scoop. Worth it. We came across a night market by the water where we found a little street cart selling the best authentic Mexican tacos. They were so good; we bought some to take back to our boss since she’s from Mexico.
Back onboard, I had to get the rest of my ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Albion Manor Bed and Breakfast Victoria
The Perfect B&B
We just returned from a four night stay at Albion Manor. As other posters have said, Don and Fernando are gracious and charming hosts, the breakfasts are amazing and will tide you over until at least mid afternoon, and the location is excellent.
We stayed in a room with a huge canopy bed that was so comfortable. The room was tastefully furnished with antiques and had an interesting selection of books to read (nice touch!). We had our own private little balcony with wisteria growing over the top, which was just beautiful in the mornings. All in all, we found it to be the perfect B&B and if we return to Victoria, we will no doubt stay there again.
Don and Fernando were charming and delightful hosts! Don made exquisite and beautiful breakfasts each morning. I have never had anything so amazingly moist, light and airy as Don's lemon-ricotta pancakes. The heavenly pears were divine and the Spanish peaches were muy delicioso! Fernando entertained and educated us with stories about art, architecture, European history, and travel adventures. We greatly enjoyed talking and laughing together.
All I can say is ...Wow !!
What can I say ?? Albion Manor is a class act on all levels. From the wonderful artwork on the walls to the antiques to the to-die-for breakfasts......Oh my !!! Albion is a wonderful mansion in the heart of Vicotria, within a few blocks of downtown and the inner harbor, and surrounded by great restaurants. The owners are first class and truly enjoy the visitors in their home. I have recommended it to my triends and I know you'll love it too !!
Location, food, and hosts ...... wonderful visit
This was the second visit for myself and my friend to Ryan's/Albion Manor. It's location is ideal for visiting Victoria. Just a few blocks away from the Harbor on a quiet tree lined street. Perfect for a nice stroll to anywhere within the downtown area.
Hosts Don and Fernando were friendly and informative, eager to share their art filled home with you.
We enjoyed delicious breakfasts, especially Don's scones yum...... You did not need to eat again till later in the evening! We had a great time meeting people from all over the place and learning about their lives and hometowns. These are the unique experiences we found that you get staying at a B&B. We have no doubt we'll be back again!
We have stayed with Don and Fernado three visits. My husband and I love Victoria. The last visit I took my mom. She was fascinated by all the unique art around the house and learned that Fernando made most of it, while Don is quite a collector as well. The B&B is comfortable, clean and cozy. The breakfasts are wonderful as well as the conversations with their unique range of guests.
I couldn't give them a higher recommendation!
Enjoy your stay.

Loved this place
There was beauty and comfort everywhere we looked at Ryan's Bed and Breakfast (renamed: The Albion Manor), hosted by the incredibly gracious Don and Fernando. Don's cooking was elegant and delicious. Fernando, a professional artist, has filled the very comfortable common rooms with his whimsical and beautiful paintings and sculptures, and no detail is spared in every room which is full of period detail, personality and did I mention comfort? Big beds, sumptuous coverings, even good books at the bedside...
A charming place with lots of ambience, Victorian-esqu feelings. The group breakfast was fun and delicious, the place settings very elegant and British, the guests you meet inquisitive and world travelers... All combined to give you a great visit. The hosts Don and Fernando are friendly and outgoing. .. The gardens are lovely to sit in and gaze at... The B&B is located close to the wharf for sightseeing and nightlife... The rooms are all decorated and furnished artistically different. There are numerous art pieces throughout the house, most of them done by Fernando himself. He's glad to give you a tour (if you are interested!) and explain what his art represents and what it was that inspired him...
Enjoyable stay at Albion House
Our stay at the Albion House was very enjoyable. Don and Fernando were gracious hosts. The food was fabulous and the art tour was extremely entertaining. The garden was inviting and spacious. Would love to come back!
This was our second trip to BC and our second stay at Ryans and Darren and myself.
This was our first B & B stay ever and now I can't wait to go back there! We were traveling with our 2 kids ages 5 and 7 and our hosts were extremely accomodating. Don made exquisite breakfasts and Fernando was a wonderful server. They were kind hosts, I just can't say enough good things about them. Our room (#8) had a very comfortable bed. I am amazed at how clean the clear glass shower doors were.
