Unforgettable summer vacation
I felt like a queen (or shall I say an Empress!) staying at The Fairmont Empress hotel in Victoria, BC. As we were approaching the Victoria Inner Harbour by a ferry, I asked my husband, “Is that our hotel?”, and I got excited when he replied “Yes!” The exterior of the hotel looked like a castle, and the location was perfect, within walking distance to great restaurants, cafes, shopping, museums, and The British Columbia Parliament Buildings. Our room was gorgeous. One afternoon, we indulged ourselves with Afternoon Tea. Everything was delicious, and I especially loved the salmon pinwheels, cucumber-horseradish sandwiches, and fruit tarts. This was one of the most memorable and romantic summer vacations I have had.
