Vancouver island

A travel blog entry by obrillips


After our bagel, muffin, toast and coffee free breaky for the last time, we stumbled around the subway with our giant packs, trying to work out the train system. Somehow we ended up where we were meant to be and boarded the bus to Victoria. The bus pulled up inside the biggest ferry ever, with all the other trucks, cars and buses. It was 6 storeys …

Life in Victoria.

A travel blog entry by clboyce



- I had the privilege of living in Victoria, BC for approximately 7-8 months (around a number of small trips within Canada and the US). Myself and a number of exchange students stayed at the Ocean Island Inn for anywhere between 1 day to 2 weeks prior to moving into our on-campus or off-campus accommodation for The …

Headache Rules the Day

A travel blog entry by philippajane86


I'm not sure if it was the rich meatloaf last night or spending too much time blogging, but my head was a pounding like a pair of monkey's cymbals this morning. I drank some water to try and quell any possible dehydration, but it wouldn't budge. We went to good old John's Place for breakfast to make sure it was a hunger headache, just in case, and …

La perla de Victoria

A travel blog entry by beelle


No se me hubiera ocurrido visitar Victoria, en la isla de Vancouver si no me lo hubiesen recomendado mi hermano Luis y mi cuñada Marisa. Y debo agredecérselo mucho porque Victoria es una auténtica joya de ciudad en las que se te pasa el día recorriendo el paseo marítimo, comiendo fish&chips (o lo que los norteamericanos denominan marisco) en una …

First Official Day in Canada

A travel blog entry by hevine


I knew I was in for a long flight and I'm pleased we arrived 45 minutes early, just not so keen on the sore tail bone I have from sitting for so long. Anyhow you know me, suck it up and get on with it. Approached customs and answered 20 questions about my life in NZ, I wasn't sure if he was planning his next holiday there or if I looked like I had …

    The Ocean Island provided myself and a number of international exchange students a happy place to stay whilst looking for accommodation within Victoria. The hostel was located in an accessible place close to buses in the Downtown area. The staff were friendly and the entertainment such as bands, pub-crawls and quiz nights were satisfactory.

    Good hostel to stay at, very central to everything in Victoria. Only $20pn and nice spacious rooms too, there's even a sink and some cupboards in the rooms. The hostel serves hot chocolate, coffee, and a selection of homemade cakes and biscuits throughout the day, and has an excellent cafe on-site. I couldn't fault the hostel, even the wireless was good! I'd definitely stay again if in Victoria.
