British Columbia (B.C.), Canada is definitely my next target after enjoying the tourist spots of Ontario, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. I was planning to travel last June 2012 but for some reason, it got pushed back from my bucket list.

Later on, my cousin, Jaime (a.k.a. Chancee), informed me that he’s flying to Winnipeg for a study tour and asked me if it’s possible for us to meet up. We both agreed to see each other in Vancouver and stay in one of our relatives place whom I haven’t met.

I was so pumped! I’ll be hitting four birds with one stone! Err… it would also be cute to say, with one airfare. Well, it’s surely worth it. I’ll be able to:
*** Chat with my cousin
*** Meet & bond with my new-found relatives
*** Take a well-deserved holiday
*** “Get to know” British Columbia

Indeed, God is good. Through His “magical hands”, the wonderful trip took place and it certainly paved the way to connect some of the missing links of my life.

So, what happened during the trip? Hmmm… I’ll let you know in a bit. :p

I’ve never experienced camping in this side of the world, hence, I was really looking forward to the first ever company camping at the Palliser Park Marina. Impediments such as upset tummy, last-minute change of transportation arrangements, lack of camping gears, and among other things did not stop TheCuriousMe from joining the said activity.

Initially, I requested to car pool with YW but something unexpected happened so I had to ask P and N for a ride. Thanks for making me feel welcome P and N!

The “shortcut” to our destination was to cross the Lake Diefenbaker via ferry. The ferry ride was awesome! I admit, it’s also my first time to board a ferry while inside the car. :p

The social committee agreed to designate the meal preparation to each team. For the booze and pop, everyone were encouraged to bring their favorites.

Overall, we had a great time! A good bonfire, colorful fireworks, interesting (!) chitchat, relaxing music, endless supply of food and booze, crazy antics, and hilarious moments. 😀

The camping activity indeed helped us bond, get to know each other on a more personal level and bring to light everyone’s quirks. It was an absolutely amazing discovery! I’m glad I joined.

Famous word of the entire weekend: Positivity!

P.S.
S’mores are so tasty! Right Alan? 🙂

tent

The group “kitchen” tent was already set-up in the middle of the campsite when we arrived. I thought it might be a good idea to station “my tent” near the food section. What ya think? *wink* *wink*

Furthermore, Baby JC was kind enough to lend and help me set up the camping paraphernalia. I was super excited because I had the most unique and coolest tent in the whole campsite! It’s a vavaboom, old-school tent! Rock and roll!

Believe it or not, I slept like a baby. Ha!

rise & shine!

Except for one instance when someone was running around dancing and singing at 3 a.m… I guess, I was not the only one who heard it because someone yelled “go to sleep”. 🙂   All I can say is, “Silent water runs wickedly deep”. :p

I’ll shut my gob and let you check out the “tent-tabulous” collapsible shelters in the group campsite as well as feel and enjoy the peaceful “scenery”:

Camping is a life changing experience indeed! Until next time!
P.S. Can I stay in a camper for a change, pretty please?  🙂
