Travel Diary: Bowen Island

I went to Bowen Island for a couple of days with two friends. It’s really close to Vancouver.

I felt stressed these past weeks and wanted a break from city life. Prior to the trip, I had not been on an overnight trip in several years and did not hike in a really long time. I am a homebody but it was relaxing and refreshing to be in nature. I felt peaceful.

I think that when you’re on the island, you are on an “island timezone.” What I mean by this is that there’s no rush and there’s not much need to check your phone. I wonder why I check my phone a lot more in the city- perhaps because a lot of people have the ‘need to be productive’ mindset?

Day 1

The view from the ferry.

The view from the top.

I would say that the highlight of the trip was stargazing. There is only one street light on the island. I had never seen so many stars before. They looked so big and I could see them clearly.

Day 2

The lighthouse and volcanic rocks.

I got my friends to watch The Untamed with me after our hikes. They became really invested in it, which was great. Hehehe.

Beautiful Hydrangeas

What’s up, people?!

I’ve wanted a DSLR since I was around 17 when I started blogging and I finally bought one! I’m 22 years old now, and I guess I kind of forgot I wanted one until now…

These are the first photos I took with my Canon EOS 600D. These photos don’t have filters or anything. Hydrangeas are one of my favourite flowers. I fell in love with them after watching After the Rain.

Blogging from the University

Today I had a meeting at the Psychology Lab and the Professor brought strawberries!

Then I went to the rose garden on campus. I love roses. This shouldn’t be a surprise because my name is Rose. These were my favourites. No filter for the next three:

I found these pedals on the ground:

What a great day.
