For 2 weeks we were volunteering on an organic Farm, that produces fruit, vegetables and wine. Here are some stories we relived. Enjoy! :-D

 

The guest house is being renovated and needs to be ready in 3 days. And there is still so much to do, we cannot imagine how they're gonna make it in time. So we try our best to help. 

 

Today Markus and I found out, what landscaping fabric is...

Farm Stories: The heat is on! http://animalinside.net/index.php/animal-abroad/canada/38-farm-stories-the-heat-is-on http://animalinside.net/index.php/animal-abroad/canada/38-farm-stories-the-heat-is-on

For 2 weeks we were volunteering on an organic Farm, that produces fruit, vegetables and wine. Here are some stories we relived. Enjoy! :-D

 

The weather forecast talks about 38 degrees Celsius for Similkameen Valley this week.

Bad enough if you are working in the sun without any shade.

 

But to make things worse there is a bush fire behind the mountains and yesterday the wind changed - blowing hot air to us, that seems to be coming straight from hell. Dear Lord. We are staying in a cabin at the river. No air condition of course and walls out of cardboard. The sun is almost burning a hole into its walls throughout the day.

A tent was build up in the night close to our mobile home. We saw the inhabitants just from far throughout the day, b ut met in the evening, shared a wine and talked. They were two canadian girls from Sasketchuan, the flattest state of Canada, as they told us, where you can see how the weather will be the day after tomorrow or where you see people arriving before they even know, they want to visit...

Crazy Town aka Dawson City http://animalinside.net/index.php/animal-abroad/canada/49-crazy-town-aka-dawson-city http://animalinside.net/index.php/animal-abroad/canada/49-crazy-town-aka-dawson-city

You need to be special, to live here. And being a bit crazy definitely helps, I would say.

:-D

 

Meet Dawson City, located deep in Yukon territory at the shores of Klondike and Yukon river, gold rush town around 1900, a bit worn out but still busy. And there are still lots of gold miners living in and around the town.

Discover the 'real' Victoria on Vancouver Island http://animalinside.net/index.php/animal-abroad/canada/41-discover-the-real-vancouver-island http://animalinside.net/index.php/animal-abroad/canada/41-discover-the-real-vancouver-island

Coming to Vancouver Island is just beautiful. The ferry from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay in Victoria takes 1,5 hours and takes you through a wonderful scenery. When the sun is setting a wonderful blue color appears on sky and water and just gives a hint of the beauty of the island. Victoria downtown is just like that. Amazing buildings, sailboats bobbing up and down in the water, flowers everywhere, great seafood restaurants and a street art festival in various locations downtown.

But... Markus and I both felt, that this is just a bit too beautiful, it felt so unreal, a bit artificial, so 'made up' for the tourists - and there are a lot of tourists...

We were rather looking for the Victoria, which you wouldn't find on a postcard, the spots where the locals would go.

Into the desert http://animalinside.net/index.php/animal-abroad/canada/36-a-greyhound-night http://animalinside.net/index.php/animal-abroad/canada/36-a-greyhound-night

Our Greyhound bus departed at the old Vancouver Bus Station at a quarter past midnight. At noon we said good-bye to our AirBnB Host Andrea, took our bagpacks and set off to the station, hoping there would be a possibility to check in or store the luggage. We found out that Greyhound wouldn’t store the luggage and wouldn’t put it into their office either. But Amtrak did. At least until 7pm. Still 5 more hours to go.
