Vancouver Island

Mt. Douglas, Vancouver Island

Friday I went to Vancouver Island to visit my friend, Maja.

This was where i realized how enormous this country is, even though it seems like this is just a small island just out from the coast. The Ferry was 1½-2 hours, and from there an hour by bus to Victoria.
Maja greeted me a the dock, and had me staying until Tuesday morning. Vancouver Island is surprisingly different from Vancouver. Everything is suddenly more America, with more McDonald’s restaurants, bigger cars (or trucks as they call it), and the classic halloween decorated American front yards and houses. Even so, in downtown Victoria it is obvious that the British once ruled here.
