In this issue DRIFT takes the family on vacation. From the wilds of Africa to an iconic luxury hotel that caters to kids, there’s a perfect family destination waiting for you. Come along on the journey as we discover a world of fun and adventure.

The event has grown

The event has grown quite popular in Victoria and though attendees are happy to just be there enjoying high tea in fancy hats, they are also contributing to the lives of the 8,000 children a year who need to travel from the island to BC Children’s hospital in mainland Vancouver. It’s a fundraiser that we are proud to be involved in and to teach our kids the difference they can make by volunteering. Although they might be doing it for those little bottles of shampoo with their own names on it, we can only hope that the bigger picture will sink in as we continue to include them in the work we do. We are grateful to the Empress hotel for giving us this opportunity and treating us as they do with all of their guests, like royalty. 36 . DRIFTTRAVEL.COM

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Fairmont Empress sits majestically overlooking Victoria’s inner harbor. It has a walk score of 98 and so a car is really not necessary. There is much to do with the family within walking distance of the hotel including the Royal BC Museum, Victoria Bug Zoo, and checking out the authentic totem poles in Beacon Hill Park. Traveling from Vancouver to Victoria, two harbor-to-harbor options include Helijet which is a fantastic 35-minute helicopter ride with spectacular views or V2V Vacations which offers a leisurely, luxury focused 3-hour ferry cruise. Travel to Victoria is great any time of year. During the summer, the city fills with stunning flowers, sailboats and tourists. Spring and fall are a treat in the city, as hotel prices are lower and there is less tourist congestion. If you are coming from a cold climate, try Victoria during the winter, as the city boasts the most temperate climate in Canada. TRAVEL OFTEN . LIVE WELL . 37
