The Trans-Canada Conquered

Correction:  So, I now realize that the route we took to the Okanagan was on the Coquihalla Highway and not the Trans-Canada Highway.  Back when I wrote this post I clearly had prairie blood running through me. Now with a little West Coast in me, I know my BC Highways a bit better. πŸ™‚

We made it…and with no panic attacks!  In fact, I actually enjoyed the drive.  I’ve been scared for the last three years about driving the Trans-Canada in BC and facing that fear yesterday felt like a big accomplishment.  And the wine, great food and amazing resort that we are staying is icing on the cake.

Quail’s Gate Winery, Kelowna, BC – Remember to eat lots before doing some wine tasting…lesson learned.

And while I’m on a roll, I might as well face another challenge this weekend.  In about 1/2 hour, Armando and I will be stepping into a cold sauna that is -110 degrees celsius…in a bathing suit!  Yikes!  (Check it out here.)

  1. Cheers to facing your fears! πŸ˜‰
    I love Quails Gate. Two other good ones are Grey Monk & Elephant Island. K-town also has a shop I like (that you might like) called Blonde.
    Have fun!
