Living and working as a photographer in a new city far from home comes with good days and bad days. Today is a good day. These are the reasons why I love living in Victoria BC.
I really enjoy saying I’m going “up island” or “let’s get back to the island” because I live on an island now.

Walking along the Galloping Goose Trail. (It is on the water, and it has a hilarious name for a trail.)
Wide bike lanes.
Used Victoria (like craigslist but so much better: Fun Fact I moved here and furnished my entire empty apartment for free within a week with excellent recycled things.)
The tiniest bit of snow shuts the entire city down.
Pot luck dinners on house boats.
Watching the tourists on sunny afternoons in the harbour.
