One Unrestrained Island Part Three: Itinerary
Just yesterday I watched the video my sister-in-law created on ten days of our driving through Vancouver Island. Some moments already dared to escape my memory, thus it was a necessary refreshment before I would write down the itinerary that hopefully would be helpful to other travellers. Watching that video made me wonder whether I would change anything in our routes, and I did not find such a desire in my mind.
One Unrestrained Island Part Two: Packing List
If there would be only one piece of advice I would be allowed to share from a ten days trip to Vancouver Island, I would not hesitate to suggest you take a yellow raincoat. I mean, it could be a red one. Could be any other colour, but as I walked on the shore, shaking, wrapping myself into a beach towel, and drowning in my husband’s hoodie, I thought of my utterly useful, waterproof and charming Helly Hansen yellow coat. Oh, what a pity! Oh, how well it would fit into the realities of the dismal day by the ocean! I also missed my rubber boots. Yet, the raincoat would be something I would start with packing a suitcase.
One Unrestrained Island: Poetry In Motion
The island astonished and concurred my whole being. My imagination simply obeyed and could only hope to grasp all the beauty that surrounded it. The place is unrestrained. I had an intrusive feeling that it was as if the island generously was allowing people to live there, as long as harmony with nature, that lush greenery and the wild ocean is treasured.
Whether A Timeless Wardrobe Exists
In realms of the latest events, we all realized that learning from the past, filled with mistakes of humanity, can be the way to a better future. Alright then, it was a rather obvious lesson, and shame on us we haven’t learned it earlier. However, those pages of the history are not only filled with terrifying, bloody stories that as much as possible we shall avoid in the present and the future, it was also filled with a graceful, mindful approach towards clothing and appearance. Here, a little disclaimer, I do not call all women to put back on corsets, even though designers often find inspiration in the Victorian era. No, in this post, I would rather draw inspiration from the mid-century, where the whole fashion revolution that started with Coco Chanel’s straight, corset-less dresses, continued.
