Visiting John & Diana In West-Kelowna!

On March 3rd we finally flew to Kelowna to spend some time with our friends John and Diana! This had been in the works for a few years, so we were beyond excited! We just wanted to spend time with them and be in that area, we didn’t have any specific wishes for sightseeing and all that – we just loved being back in our beloved (West-}Kelowna.

We flew very early and because of a last minute trip to Holland, John and Diana wouldn’t be home until later that day. But we could get the key from a neighour and other friends in the same (Glenrosa) neighbourhood stepped up big time: Mathilda Looman came to pick us up from the airport, we settled in at John and Diana’s house, walked to Hans and Mathilda’s house to have lunch and later we went to dinner with them in Peachland (Gasthaus On The Lake)! Because of a delay and missed connection, John and Diana didn’t get home until 9pm, but we did have a great day with the Loomans! Thanks guys!

On the 4th and 5th we relaxed, walked around in the neighbourhood, did some geocaching and just had a lot of quality time together <3 On the 6th we drove to Peachland for a walk along the lake and some shopping and we went to the Loomans for “gourmetten” (meal with raclette grills on the table). On the 7th we did some shopping in Kelowna. We also met up with our friend Linda again! On the 8th we drove up the mountain for some great scenery and views and in the evening we flew home again.
