--The national geographic cites the Butchart Gardens as one of the most beautiful gardens in the world.
--We took a ferry from Seattle to Victoria. We booked an overnight trip through Clipper Vacations for my 27th birthday. Downtown Victoria is BEAUTIFUL. Victoria is a unique blend of old world charm and new world experiences. It rained while we were there, however we still managed to go to a couple of stores and bars. Did I mention Canadian money is GORGEOUS?
