I call this little island a treasure, so for me living in Victoria is paradise. It is a lovely city big enough small enough. It is amazing you can do many things such connecting with nature by going on hike to mystic beach (my fav) having a nice latte at Octavio around Oak Bay Village. Every Sunday I walk around the harbour and stop by the Parliament and take a photo. Every season in Victoria is magical.
