Things to do in a summer rain

I can't help but feel sorry for the 2500 Girl Guides in Parksville this weekend, here on some international Jamboree. Sorry because of all the unprecedented and unexpected summer rain we've been having. What do you do when you're camping in the rain? Well, you can always pack up, jump in the car and head to Nanaimo to the Cyber City. Lots of video games, carnival style games, a ball room, laser tag, go-carts and a tube and tunnel. It's probably not far from a laundromat where you can dry your clothes, have a bite to eat and hope for better weather.

Amazing new sites on

One thing about indexing this directory by hand is I get to see all types of accomodation and travel service websites from all over Vancouver Island. Some have great design, like Painted Turtle Guesthouses from Nanaimo. Others offer insight into incredible resources, like Wild Pacific Trail, a free widerness trail system near Barklay Sound and Ucluelet BC.

And now that I'm becoming even better acquainted with all these resources, I'm looking forward to trying them all and reviewing them in the review section of the directory. Anyone can do that, and if you've been to one of the West Coast tourism destinations on the Vancouver Island Life directory, we invite you to add your own review.

Cheers, Vingo

Welcome to the Blog

I've recently opened the Vancouver Island directory and links engine, containing some of the best in Vancouver Island travel, accomodations, resorts, fishing, kayaking, whale watching and other attractions. A lot of fun so far, I've seen tons of great websites and creative people offering unique services across the Island. I plan to update often. Visit the page and let me know what you think.
