A Little Update + Long Weekend

I realised that I hadn't blogged since the beginning of June and thought it was time to blog again. June and July were really busy months. I can finally reveal that I have applied for permanent residency in Canada and Dan has applied to sponsor me. I didn't want to say anything until all of the application had been sent as there was a lot to do. Overall the whole process is very long so it will be a while until we hear any updates.

We booked a last minute trip away to Kelowna, BC, for August long weekend. It was my first ever road trip and it took about 7.5 hours. Luckily the scenery through the mountains makes it a wonderful drive, there's always something beautiful to look at.

Kelowna is famous for its vineyards, lakes and fresh fruit. Over the weekend the temperature was mid 30's, the highest being 37 degrees. We visited Mission Hill Winery  but by the time we got there, the 1 hour tours were already filled up. We stayed and tried some wine, for both of us to try four wines it cost $16. I am not a big wine drinker and the only wine I liked was an Icewine which cost $100 per bottle, typical haha. The fruit here is so delicious and cheap. We got a whole punnet of cherries and a punnet of 12 peaches for about $12 altogether. I am going to make a peach crumble this week as there are plenty left over!

We did a 7 mile cycle through the Myra Canyon Trestles. Myra Canyon used to be an old steam train railroad but they reconstructed the bridges so they could be used for hiking or cycling. It is really high up but has spectacular views of Kelowna and I would love to do it again.

I hope everyone else had a great long weekend.

Make sure you stay up to date with me on Instagram!
