The grizzly bears of British Columbia, here we come!

Ryan was born and grew up in Canada, while I had lived in Canada for over 5 years. And… we haven’t been to British Columbia? Canada’s province that often said to be the most beautiful one? That’s crazy, isn’t it!

Dina: “Hey, I’ve been to BC, Ryan! What are you talking about?”

Ryan: “Yeah… 2 hours transit in the airport doesn’t count!”

Anyway, that’s going to change soon, how?

Tourism BC has invited us to explore this stunning land for 4 weeks! Isn’t that amazing? And we even have a team name: Team Eagle! The famous travel figures Brendan from Brendan’s Adventures and Rob from Stop Having a Boring Life are going to be there as well, call them Team Orca!

YAY!!!

When is this going to start? The coming Monday, June 25, 2012. Until July 22. Just a few days from now, we are very excited!

What we are going to do there? Enjoying the stunning nature of BC. Hiking, rafting, mountain biking, horse riding, golfing, paddle boarding, and even zip lining. Exploring historical and cultural side of BC. Trying their best wine and cheese. Relaxing in spas and hot springs.

We are so excited to explore the BC Rockies! The majestic mountains, the glaciers, and the lakes, take us there!

And oh, we are hoping to see a lot of Canadian wild animals out there! Maybe some moose and grizzly bears? Or it can be the charming otter too!

We will be at different places every day. From Vancouver to Columbia Rockies, from Williams Lake to Nelson. So it’s going to be crazy. Crazy fun!

And oh, it’s going to be a “Fan-Powered Adventure”! What does it mean? It means we will meet up with fans along the way (could that be you?!?!), and they can join our adventure! Or… they can even decide what we should do!! Please be kind to us, folks!
