I didn’t have a taco, drink a pint, or even put my toes in the water at Long Beach. I did Tofinowrong.
Now, in my defense, this Labour Day weekend I was staying in Ucluelet, so I only spent a short time in Tofino but I’m still disappointed in myself for not following through on the things I wanted to see and do.
If you’re a westcoaster, you know that every time you mention that you’ve been to Tofino someone inevitably asks, “Did you have a taco?” or “Did you go surfing?”
No! I didn’t do anything I intended to in Tofino and I’m still mildly upset about it. But I keep telling myself, “It’s just another reason to go back”.
Whenever you are planning a trip to a new city there are necessary things you look into. For example, transportation, accommodation, and local attractions.
But often times, we don’t look into the specific events happening in the city throughout our stay, resulting in a, “If I knew THAT was going on, I totally would of checked it out” moment.
Thankfully, when it comes to the city of Vancouver there is ample information on what’s happening in the city on any day of the week. So, before you plan your whole vacation, make sure to check out these websites to make the most out of your stay.
It’s bittersweet. The last long-weekend of the summer has come and gone, but I can’t even be upset about it because I had a fabulous weekend away.
This weekend, my fiancé and our friends travelled to Vancouver Island to explore the town of Ucluelet, or Ukee as the locals call it. I’ve never been to that side of the island, so I was exited to see the Pacific Ocean in all its glory and explore a place off the well-travelled path.
