For the past 3 years, we have had a tradition of spending the Easter weekend with friends (as seen here and here).  It is always perfectly timed right before the craziness of wedding season begins, and I love having a Spring trip to look forward to throughout the winter.  This year, we are hitting the road and heading to the Okanagan (aka. Canadian wine country).  It's an area I haven't spent a lot of time in, and I am so, so SO excited to take a few days to relax and explore it.  I will be sure to document a lot of our trip on Instagram Stories, so be sure to follow along here.  I will also be putting together a travel guide post after our trip, rounding up our favourite wineries and activities, so keep your eyes peel for that!  

Now, it is about a 4.5 hour drive (post-ferry) to the Okanagan from Victoria, and we will be attempting this drive with 4 adults & 2 dogs (1 being a puppy) all in the same car.  To say that the drive is going to be an adventure, is a bit of an understatement, but I have prepared a hilarious playlist for the occasion, and I couldn't be more excited!  Due to a lack of space, we will be all packing light, but I've rounded up below a few of the items that I will definitely be bringing along...  I hope that everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend, and that you get to take some time to recharge and get ready for what will be, an amazing summer!
