Day 22 of the A-Z Blogging Challenge and the letter V.
Thanks for Victoria and Vancouver Island.
Out cycling along the seafront today, I got off and walked awhile and chatted with a woman from Estonia. She was resting on a bench, her walking poles propped beside her.
“What’s the best place?” she asked.
“The best place?”
“Yes, the best place in the world?”
“I asked because someone asked me that this morning,” she said.
“What did you say?” I asked, a knowing smile on my face.
“Here. Victoria,” she said.
“Yes,” I replied, “I came back here after 17 years away, the last 10, in Europe. It’s one of the most beautiful places in the world.”
