Place 70 – Day 10: Victoria, BC – Chinatown, Dumplings & Saturday Night Hockey

We were actually up earlier this morning, for once, but the weather wasn’t appreciated.

There were huge winds, making the windows shake! There was a small flurry of slow, but nothing crazy.

We got a lot of bookings sorted and then rewarded ourselves with a walk down to Chinatown, in the freezing cold!

The weather, including the wind chill, felt like -10°C, which is definitely did! We were getting blown all over the place by the 60kph winds!

We walked to Chinatown and took a look at all restaurants to see if there was any place selling dumplings.

We found a restaurant which we stopped in and ordered some dumplings and gyoza.

We were given some green tea too, which was warm but neither of us like tea so we didn’t really drink that. That being said, the food was pretty good!

We left here and went right to Starbucks to get a hot chocolate each and warm up.

We stopped off to get some shower gel and then went back to the apartment.

We got some more things booked and then watched the Leafs game which went to overtime with a Leafs win!

We had chicken and vegetables for dinner and then we watched the Vancouver Canucks game until bed time!

This time last year!

Place 49 – Day 350: Auckland – Advent Calendars & Windy Movie Day!

We woke up at 10:00 and had some cereal in bed, along with a coffee.

The plan for today was to do absolutely nothing, which we pretty much did.

We spent the morning watching some TV and then got ready and went out to Glenfield Mall around 13:15.

We had to get the weekly shop, as well as our first coffee from Little Things in a while!

Whilst shopping, we got an advent calendar each, too, after looking for a while.

We got home after shopping and watched a film whilst we ate the leftover bao from Kim’s dinner yesterday.

After that film, we chilled out for a bit and then we ate our dinner of mac and cheese with garlic bread, which was unhealthy but delicous!

The weather was very windy today, so that’s one of the reasons we did nothing…but we did watch a movie and watch TV, which was nice for a weekend.

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
