(My solo road trip of western Canada – Thursday 1st October)
It was so sad and quite difficult to leave Vancouver, it is such a wonderful, diverse, clean, scenic and beautiful city, I had met some of the nicest people I have ever met on my few days here, I would seriously consider living here one day.
Nonetheless, the reality was I had to leave to stick to my itinerary and my next stop was going to be Kelowna, nearly 400 kms away, a good four drive if I did not stop and see anything else along the way.
As you will see from the photos below, very scenic drive, some of the switchbacks were a little terrifying in some areas, the view along the way was spectacular and the weather was…well, absolutely brilliant again.
My favourite part of this particular drive was driving though the famous seven tunnels which had been carved out of the mountains, some were actually quite long, and every tunnel I exited, there was a completely different view to behold from the previous one. I managed to find a video on Youtube of someone who filmed his drive through the seven tunnels, definitely gives you a very good idea of what the drive was like.
