New favourite places (and new favourite people)

photos taken at Chesterman Beach in Tofino, BC on a particularly beautiful day last week

I've been to Ucluelet/Tofino twice since moving to "the island" in September and it is becoming one of my favourite places to visit. The drive there and back is so beautiful, the beaches are just magnificent, and everywhere you look is the most amazing wildlife (we spotted a few bears this time around!).  

I went on this trip with some new friends from school and we had the most wonderful time. What is it about travel (near or far) that seems to accelerate the friendship process? Some of my dearest friends are people that I've met on short trips, whom I've gotten to know over a few short days. 

I'm so thankful that I was given the opportunity to study here, and I definitely intend to make the most of it (travel and otherwise :).
