It will be a long drive today. 494 miles as Google said. We will stop by the town of Kamloops for lunch, and in late afternoon we will pass the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, Mount Robson. We will stay at the small town of Jasper tonight.
Not much arranged for today, so just relax. Our itinerary for today is to checkout hotel at Victoria, look around the town again, and drive north to the ferry port of Swartz bay, where the ferry will take us to Vancouver across the bay in 1.5 hour. We will stay at downtown Vancouver tonight and have some really great foods!
We will check out our hotel near Seattle airport and drive northwest to Olympic National Park and feel the serenity of temporal rain forest. If time allows we will then checkout some lavender farm near the town of Port Angeles. At 5:20 pm, we will take a ferry to Victoria, the capital city of the Canadian province of British Columbia.
Can't wait for my first Europe trip! It's going to be fun there! We're leaving on 3/3/17. Our flight is 8 and 1/2 hours long. We will spend the first day at the British museum. In Europe we're going to England. I have a friend that was born there. we're staying there for 8 days.
This is what I am looking forward to...
