After nine days on the road together, we arrived in Vancouver.
We awoke early on the sixth day of our trip, knowing we had 300 kilometers to cover from Tofino to Victoria with a few stops in between.
Next up on our Vancouver Island road trip: Tofino! For the first three posts in this series, you can go here (Squamish), here (Nanaimo), and here (Cathedral Grove).
The drive from Nanaimo to Tofino takes place primarily on winding two lane roads, over mountains, through forests, and along rivers before you hit the west coast of Vancouver Island.
Nanaimo may have been my least favorite stop on our BC road trip. (Sorry, Nanaimo! I know that’s not fair to you. Read on for why…)
I don’t pretend to be a travel expert on Squamish, British Columbia. Nearly four years have passed since I last visited.
