"We had a wonderful 2 month long home exchange with Carolyn & Mick staying in their lovely home in Victoria (Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada).
We borrowed their camping gear and travelled 'up island' and 'across island' as we explored and travelled all around beautiful Vancouver Island.
We explored many of the gardens in and around Victoria and followed many of Carolyn's excellent 'visiting gardens' suggestions. We explored a large number of museums and heritage centres (around 40+) and we travelled across to Vancouver City. We wish we had allowed extra time to explore Seattle (Washington) and Portland (Oregon) and even Alaska via the Inside Passage but we simply never had enough time to see it all ...there's always next time! Thank you so much to Carolyn and Mick for a wonderful swap."
