explore

travel through (an unfamiliar area)
in order to learn about it.

After spending three months in Canada in 1976,

I have often lamented the fact that I did not…

…leave time to visit the Butchart Gardens.

So, when planning our 2018 visit, to Canada…

 

…we decided to spend a few days in Victoria (BC)

to recover from our 14-hour non-stop flight

across the Pacific…

…but mainly to visit, in our own time,

the Butchart Gardens and any other

attractions Victoria had to offer.

That was one of the best decisions we made.

We were able to wander along the many paths

that comprise the gardens at our own pace…

…exploring at our leisure.

Any future visit to Canada would…

…have to include a morning at…

…the Butchart Sunken Gardens…

…on Vancouver Island.

A bit closer to home is…

…the Hamilton Gardens…

…in New Zealand’s North Island.

I always thought this was a beer bottle.

However the words

flavoured beverage,

have me wondering.

Whatever the contents it would

take some drinking.

All the way across the Indian Ocean

to see a Giant Aardvark

in Botswana

 

A couple of hours northwest of Geelong

is the Giant Koala.
