      This is a very nice place! The common room and kitchen are great, many windows, lots of light... in this dark winter weather, I appreciate! Very well located, close to the waterfront, into the art district. Cafes, restaurants nearby, as well as a grocery store at about 10 min walk. If I come back to Nanaimo I will stay here again!

Where I had to wait longer because the flight was running late also. I had requested a window seat, so my bear pillow and I snuggled to the window and was out!

However, someone telling you about the ladders you will have to climb really don't hit home until you are standing at the bottom of a sixty rung ladder which stand at an 80 degree angle. Which is only the first of the other four ladders above it!

      After the orientation you are free to hit the trail and ...

      "First I was dying to finish my high school and start college and then I was dying to finish college and start working. Then I was dying to marry and have children. And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough so I could go back to work. But then I was dying to retire. And now I am dying. And suddenly I realized I forgot to live."

      Have a great day everyone ...

      ... most importantly showering. We got on to our next flight which was at about 3:30 pm which was also through Cathay Pacific. This flight was hell! The service sucked and there was nooo leg room at all. So after about 11 hours of listening to the burping lady that sat across the isle from us, attempting to sleep and being air sick, I can say that we were both super excited to finally reach New ...
