On Vacation With... Lovely Velo

As a Trip Planner for a high-end travel company, I spend my year designing cycling and hiking trips in Asia - from the exotic beaches of Vietnam to the peaceful backwaters of Southern India. When August rolls around, things are quiet in my work life, so I get to spend a little time planning a trip just for me. No place beckons an August getaway quite like Canada, British Columbia's cabin country in particular.
So, my day begins waking up in a rustic log cabin much like this one...
... and a jog through the morning grass (maybe with that dog I've been dreaming about getting!)...
... a post-lunch game of cards is a must with folksy tunes in the background...
... a little alone time to stroll the nearby trails on horseback...
... and finally a sunset cruise on the water before getting cozy at the campfire... hello August!
