I went to Victoria, BC again. Last time I went to Craigdarroch Castle, Chinatown and Miniature Museum. This time I went to the Parliament Buildings (only outside) and Butchart Gardens.

The Parliament Buildings are really big.

The Butchart Gardens are quite big as well. I took photos of my favourite flowers. I must have missed the lilies because I don’t think I saw them…

The gardens are definitely my favourite place in Victoria.

I went to Grouse Mountain, also known as the Peak of Vancouver. I’ve been there when I was younger, but it’s my first time back as an adult.
before the skyride
The chairlift was probably the funnest part for me, and we saw a big bear while sitting on it. The view of Vancouver was pretty – the land surrounding the water bodies in the second photo is the city.
These are unedited photos I took at Miniature World in Victoria. Miniature World is a museum where everything is tiny. There were so many displays and admission is $16 for adults. For point of reference… imagine the Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan.
The details are incredible.
The train actually runs so this is not just for show.
Every display contains so much – it’s hard to capture everything in just one photo.
There were a lot of modern displays but I don’t have many photos of them.
Day versus night at the circus. Some displays turn dark and they have cool lights.
I went on a trip to Victoria with the crew. I took these photos with my camera (not phone camera) so these photos are not edited, except for the last one.
I wanted to post a photo of this beautiful piano but unfortunately the picture I took is blurry. 😦
Chinatown in Victoria is tiny! A lot of shops aren’t run by Asian people either but the lanterns look nice. I regret not buying a No Face plush keychain (from Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away). TT_TT There was a Totoro one too. I do think that Totoro is cuter but I like No Face more.
Part 2 will be on Miniature World. I have a lot more photos for that which is why there are two parts.

This is Part 2 from my last post. I will write a Part 3 on my cosplay.
On Robson Street (near the Vancouver Art Gallery) there are these lights on the street. People gather there to take photos. I didn’t know it was there until I saw it (I live under a rock) but I thought I should take photos of my own. I hope you like the pictures of the lights!
