Do me a favour and close your eyes for a minute. Imagine a place where the words “spectacular”, “jaw-dropping” and “breathtaking” do not even begin to describe its beauty.
It’s infinite and unparalleled. There are towering fir forests, frosty glaciated mountains, dramatic coastlines, sinewy rivers, acres of untamed wilderness, an abundance of wildlife and the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.
Ok, now open. Welcome to British Columbia.
After three months of road tripping across the Canadian Provinces and after countless incredible adventures, I have concluded that it’s impossible not to feel inspired by British Columbia.
