Birthday Weekend

posted in: Life, Summer, Traveling | 2

So this day has been very interesting so far. I decided to do a morning yoga instead of my usual morning hike and I don’t know what I did, but somehow I managed to pull a muscle on my back and I had to change all my today’s plans to a long hot bath and back to bed. I can’t pretty much do anything. 😀 Since I can’t do all the things that I planned, I’m putting together the birthday weekend getaway post as I promised.

On my birthday we drove to Oliver which is at the south end of Okanagan Valley here in B.C. Such a gorgeous place with beautiful scenic wineries, apple farms and so much more. Going to Oliver was just what I needed and it made my birthday feel extra special!


On our way there our first must stop was See Ya Later Ranch. For some reason I don’t have any pictures from there!!!! But if you are ever planning to go and do a wine tasting tour – I highly recommend the place! I brought home with me some of their peachy Riesling which was sooo delish! (Sadly it’s all gone now after the Labour Day weekend! hehe..) After wine tasting we had a lunch at their restaurant, did some shopping and then hit the road again.

Our second stop was Burrowing Owl winery which was amazing! It was my first time there and definitely not the last one. I’m not that into red wines but after tasting theirs I might have just changed my mind a bit;)





Our final destination was Hester Creek Winery. Where we also stayed. Their Villa was absolute perfection in every way! Breathtaking views, cozy room and top notch service. Definitely one of the best places where we have stayed.









Overall a perfect birthday celebration!
