We are travelling 3,549 km over four weeks with our nine year old son. Our teenage daughter (wisely) flies to meet us on Vancouver Island and then flies back a week later from Kelowna.
This road trip is planned to maximize fun with Aaron. He’s had a rotten school year, to be honest, and we want to just hang out with him, and take his lead on activities. We hope to go to at least two drive-in theatres (we have zero drive-ins in Alberta, did you know that?) in northern Oregon and central Washington, discover beaches, do two separate river floats, eat a lot of ice cream and go on a roller coaster ride.
When we hit Parksville, we are on the family route, mooching accommodations and food and visiting my beloved parents, brother and sister-in-law, and father and mother-in-law.
But the ten days previous are a cornucopia of funky accommodations. I’m so curious to see which one is our favourite and why. I have to say that every single person I dealt with to reserve each of these places was friendly, pleasant and welcoming. This is always a good sign…
