I have not been writing in a while as I have been too busy with work and school; however recently we went on a mini excursion to the Okanagan during Labour day weekend. I have not traveled for a while so this was a treat for me.
When traveling I find that I am at peace with myself as it allows me to recuperate from any stressful events in my life. It enables me to grow, reflect,reminisce and find back myself which sometimes I loose in the city life. I can’t think of a better place to go and visit.
The Okanagan was very scenic and picturesque in its own right. In comparison to Vancouver, it was much less commercialized and has maintained much of its natural beauty. Surrounded by glistening lakes, one can enjoy a quiet stroll underneath the clear blue sky while admiring the serenity of the place. There was less congestion, dirt and noise which was quite a stark contrast to city life. Instead of a concrete jungle, beautiful orchards filled with ripening fruit and wineries occupy the valley. Life slows down to a crawl and people are much more pleasant there. During our 3 day stay there this was what we experienced and saw.
Switching gears to baking, I have not baked for a while hence baked up a mousse cake. This time I made a white chocolate mousse cake.
