We moved to Victoria in April 2018 from Nelson, B.C. I had travelled and lived in many parts of the world, including Papua New Guinea, Trinidad and Tobago, Peru (12 years), and Colombia. My husband worked as a Project Manager, mainly on mining construction projects. Returning to Canada in 2008, we started out in Kelowna, then moved to the Kootenays, where I grew up. We wintered in Arizona for many years, but finally gave that up and headed to Victoria. My youngest son and family live here, and all other children live in the Lower Mainland. Although I loved the Kootenays, I wanted to live closer to the children and grandchildren. Victoria, with it’s fabulous climate, and everything it offers as a city, was a great choice. Besides hanging out with my 3 grandsons, I like to golf, play bridge, read and walk.
