BC, Canada

My family and I just got back from the most amazing holiday! We spent spring break on the slopes at Big White, in British Colombia, Canada. The conditions were great up there, with fresh snow almost everyday, and a base of 300cm!!! It was so nice to spend time with my extended family, and explore a new ski resort!  We stayed at Sundance Hotel, where we had our own condo with two bedrooms and a small kitchen. The hotel had a games room and an outdoor pool, with a slide. Although the pool was heated, it was still pretty chilly so I stuck to the hot tub for most of the time! It was often quite foggy, but on a clear day we had the most spectacular mountain view from the hot tub, which was the most relaxing way to end the day. There were plenty of activities happening at the resort, and we tried to take advantage of as many of them as we could! A highlight of the trip was going to the snow tubing park, and spinning down the hills with all of my cousins. The resort also offers snowshoeing, ice skating, and snowmobile rental, but the week went by quickly, and we didn’t have the chance to try everything out. My little cousin, who’s the biggest animal lover, went for a dog sled ride, and had the time of her life! Here are a few photos from the trip…

 

Sweet view from the plane to Vancouver!


There was an INSANE amount of snow, and I thought it looked like something out of a painting when it was piled up on the rooftops!

Another pretty sight…

 

 

First day of skiing!

 

All 20 of us!

This was the coolest ice tower that people were climbing, with special boots and tools!

Toronto Adventure!

This weekend, I took a trip up to Toronto to see some friends and hang out with my family. Toronto is probably one of my favourite cities, and I have a blast every time I go! Unfortunately, part of the subway line shut down, which got in the way of some of my plans, but I still managed to have a super fun time! The weather was just above zero degrees Celsius, and the snow was almost all gone. I could definitely feel spring in the air! Here are a few pictures from the weekend…

  
I loved exploring Toronto with these gals! My cousin Sadie is on the far left, and my cousin Emma is on the far right. We were laughing about this picture afterwards, because we didn’t choose the best background, but I love the photo nonetheless. 
 

Milkshake stop! We were SO done with Winter, we decided to grab some cold drinks to welcome the warmer weather.  We went to Franks, close to Kensington Market, and it was super delicious! They also make all kinds of hotdogs with cool toppings, so definately check it out if you’re in the city!

  
Kensington! The market is filled with unique stores and vintage shops. There was also a place serving chicken and waffles, which I’ve never tried, but I think I will next time I’m in Kensington. We thought this setup was pretty funny, 10 points if you can spot my eye peeking out creepily….
 

  
One of my favourite things about Toronto is all of the cute coffee shops! Each one is so unique and special! Unfortunately, we had a busy day, so we couldn’t sit down to eat, but we brought delicious tea and pastires with us in the car. Yummmm….

  


The weather was beautiful and the sky was gorgeous! I haven’t seen a good sunny day like this for a while!
