Can I just tell you that I am having SO MUCH FUN with my new drone? I've never been so excited to edit footage before in my life! Last weekend Bobo, Jack and I travelled a hop, skip and jump over to Saltery Bay Provincial campground, just south of Powell River. We had it booked from Friday-Sunday but since it was raining on the Friday, we couldn't leave until Bobo was done work AND we had to take two ferries we decided to just get an early start on Saturday morning. When I booked the campsite I thought it was just north of Gibsons and not two ferries away....oops! haha. It was a long an expensive trip for camping for 1 night but....was still worth it (HASHTAG NO REGRETS)! If you're thinking of heading to Saltery Bay area, I would highly recommend at least a two night stay to make the trip worth while. Check out the video and all the locations featured in the video below :) [fbvideo link="https://www.facebook.com/bolandiablog/videos/10153512603371607/" width="800" height="449" onlyvideo="1"]
It's been 8 months since my trip to Turkey & Greece with my friend Allison and I realized I haven't posted the last two cities on our trip. Better late than never though, right? After hearing many disappointing reviews on the city we went into it with low expectations which actually worked to our advantage. After Santorini we flew to Athens first thing in the morning and stayed for one night. It was a smouldering 35-38 degrees in the city and with only one day to pack all the touristy sites in there wasn't a single minute wasted. We walked to the Acropolis from our hotel, then to Temple of Zeus, then Olympic Stadium, then toured around the city on a hop-on, hop-off bus. I really enjoyed seeing all the historic sites and found the people in the city to be less aggressive than when we were Istanbul.
If you're ever in Athens do yourself a favour and go to Lithos for dinner. The food was fantastic but the service & people were even better.
Accommodation was expensive in Athens. The night after Santorini we stayed at Hotel Tempi. Our last night on our trip after Meteora we stayed at City Circus Hostel which is the super trendy looking place in the photos at the bottom of the article. The two beds in a 6 bedroom mixed dorm was $10 less than what we paid for a private room and bathroom at the Hotel Tempi. :|
Tis the season for family portraits! Check out photos from my photo session today with my cousins & aunt :)
