... as ''oe-koe-leh-leh'' and not ''joe-koe-leh-leh''. After that, we watched different types of gypsy dancers taking us around India, eastern Europe, Turkey, Egypt and Iran. I couldn't really follow what was going on and it was a little weird (and sometimes awful music, but hey, we have awful carnavals music). Then we waited for Uminaro Taiko, a bunch of Japanese taiko drummers from Victoria. They were pretty energetic and it ...
... to Costco wholesale, which is like the Sligro, but then 100 times bigger! That was one hell of an experience (in a positive way)! We bought so much, we should have that in Holland.
+ We made our own oliebollen, yummy.
- It took some time to finish them.
+ The girls are funny.
+ Our nails were painted by the girls.
+ I bought 2 articles of clothing for only 10 bucks! Cheap cheap cheap.
Ok so its been a while since the date, but it was my birthday so my mum, my sister, my auntie, and my cousin and I drove into Victoria and went to one of my most favorite places in Victoria! that being Silk Road! Silk Road is a tea shop in Victoria, not to sure sure where it actually is. So i got some of my favorite angel water tea. Its kind of like a green peppermint tea.
... a book, until they returned, checking on their progress from time to time. They kayaked in a zigzag pattern, not being very experienced. The calm waters this afternoon were a great place for them to learn. They found a cliff suitable for jumping off of, and Colt did manage to get one jump in before they had to head back to camp.
Our monopoly game later that day was almost blown away by the evening breeze so we had to move it inside Googoo, ...
... a good morning. The rest of the day was not so good, as I got stuck in Nanaimo for the night on my way back to Cortes due to a greyhound strike. I spent my birthday with a very delicious salad in a hostel. The next month on Cortes was even better than the first, although there isn't a lot to tell here. My favourite memory was swimming alone and naked in the ocean one full moon, and I spent most days hiking around the island and conversing with ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsKingfisher Oceanside Resort and Spa Courtenay
An amazing place where their commitment to local, sustainable produce and high quality service makes the stay so fantastic.
The rooms are fun - Murphy beds mean that there's more space. But, you hardly need it, considering the lounge chairs by the ocean (or when it's cold, like it is now, you can go in the spa lounge) or the hot tub, steam caves, outdoor heated pool, or more are on offer. The spa is fantastic - amazing hydrotherapy (a MUST!!) with divine massages and services available for reservation.
The food is one of the greatest highlights. Local seafood, cheese, meats, bread...you name it, they have it. I definitely recommend that you book - the restaurant is a favourite with locals and tourists alike, and you may be waiting if you don't have a reservation. But, you MUST eat here...don't cheap out and go to McDonalds in Courtenay!!
Bring some good books and unwind...this place is ideal for getting away without it breaking the bank...and trust me, you'll feel a whole lot happier and relaxed than if you take a stressful flight for 12 hours somewhere else!!
