Trains/Planes/Ferries : Vancouver Island
I took the bus from Vancouver International Airport to Victoria. The cost is $45.50 one-way, including the 90-minute ferry ride. Slick!
Aboard BC Ferries from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay.
I spent the night in Victoria. Not here at the BC Parliament Buildings, but at the always lovely Fairholme Manor.
Great scenery aboard Via Rail Canada's train to Courtenay.
There's nothing fancy about Via Rail's train. Bring snacks/water, as there is no food service on the Victoria-Courtenay route.
Parksville is one of the stops on the route.
There's plenty of greenery on the five-hour journey.
The train is only 15 minutes late when it arrives in Courtenay.
My room at the Old House Village Suites & Hotel in Courtenay.
