Trusting a stranger!

A travel blog entry by lmc193

Would you trust a complete stranger? I ask the question as throughout this trip, we have done just that. In fact many a time without even realising it! The main thing we love about the Tofino Trek Inn is how small it is! Its cosy and you feel like your living at home! There are two double rooms and 2 dorm rooms with 3 beds in! The kitchen is …
