Leaving Rachel and Peter behind as we left Strathacona the adventure didn't end, it just started. Finally, after so many times of nearly going but not going in the end I was supposed to go up north. Better late then never was the attitude. And for once I wasn't planning on attempting it all by myself but in the company of Laura and Lasse. We had a very loose plan of where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. But at least we had a good starting point - the famous inside passage, a ferry...

Majid and Amir had left, Rachel, Peter, Lasse, Laura and me were still in the same boat, heading the same direction - Strathacona Provincial Park. From what I had heard and researched it was one of the best hiking spots to be found anywhere on the island, and with Covid and the season being pretty much over anyway I was expecting some wild, untouched trails that waited to get explored.

Even though the whole seaweed harvesting trip had felt more like a fun summer camp then work or volunteering all of us agreed that it was time for some more vacation and a nice camping trip in Bamfield. So here we were, Peter, Rachel, Laura, Lasse, Amir, Faline, Majid and me were left. We all squeezed into Falines car and Majid's and my trucks, as the road to Bamfield is nothing for the faint hearted or low clearance vehicles. I've heard that the road was supposed to be bad before, but to be...

Williams lake, a random parking lot - where to go now?! That was a seriously good question. The longer I thought about it, the more options came into my mind, which didn't help at all... So instead of thinking I decided to write to Peter (whom I knew from my last visit in Barriere). I knew he went Seaweed harvesting on Vancouver Island and even though I got that same invitation I hadn't considered it so far. At the same time I wrote to Majid from Canadian Pacifico Seaweeds (CPS) and made up my...

What's a typical Canadian scenery? In many cases people would probably say a Grizzly somewhere in the miuntains, catching a salmon out of a river while a bold eagle is flying above. At least that is something I had always thought of when talking about Canada... Now I know, it's not a little kids dream, it's actually real, I saw it! But first things first, after leaving Nuk Tessli I decided to go to Bella Coola with Theresa and Semi for a night before heading North to the Stewart Classier HWY...

Literally I went not only four days into the wilderness but also onto Wilderness. It's one of the better known peaks in the area arround Nuk Tessli, at least it has a name on the maps... Together with another German/Austrian volunteer couple I set out on a four day camping/trekking/hiking trip even further into the untouched mountain wilderness arround here. Lucky as we are the weather was supposed to be great during the upcoming days and started out promising as we crossed the lake to the...

I haven't even been at Nuk Tessli for 2 days when I got the chance to take my first day off and go hiking. Luckily for me nobody was allowed to venture out on thier own so Theresa and Semi had to play the 'babysitter' and take me along when they went out for a hike. I guess or at least I hope they didn't mind too much. Anyway, today's destination was Atnarko peak, an addition to the usual hiking path of Northpass lake. We ventured out after finishing breakfast duties and hopped into the boat to...

The week in Barriere passed by super quick and here I was, back on the road again. Up into an adventure I couldn't even have dreamed of before. Nuk Tessli - a Wilderness hiking lodge in the Chilcotin on the boundary of Tweedsmuir Provincial park between Williams Lake and Bella Coola. I tried getting in contact with them when I was in Ontario already, but as all the Whistler stuff happened so suddenly I had to drop that idea again. Now, finally it worked out, as if it was meant to be...

The main motivation for going to Whistler was to start working fora Landscaping company here. The whole thing got set up by Tracey who's son is working for the company too and said that they need an extra pair of hands. As housing in Whistler is hard to find, or let's rather say affordable housing, I went to stay at the company owners farm in MtCurrie, close to Pemberton.

I had about a week to get back from Ontario to BC or more precisely to Whistler closure to Vancouver on the West coast of British Columbia. Instead of taking to southern route along HWY1 I wanted to travel all the way on the Yellowhead Highway which lies a little bit further north. Even though I would have had enough time to stop and explore I didn't really find anything to stop. Actually it's been hard enough to find a rest area to stop and make a break at. There were sections when I drove for...
