V is for Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia

Vancouver, British Columbia, is one of the grooviest cities I’ve ever visited. It has a bohemian, creative, chic-vibe similar to San Francisco with a dash more international flavor.

Q is for Quirky Kitsch Girl

Before this blog, Solo Travel Girl, I started Quirky Kitsch Girl’s View in 2005, a blog to post my random thoughts and share what was happening with family and friends. It wasn’t my first blog, I’ve actually been blogging since at least 2003 (or maybe 2002) but that blog no longer exists.
