GINTA – We have it so good here

THERE’S NO OTHER way to put it. Being away from Kamloops for a few days makes it ring true, yet again. It happens mostly when I am stuck in slow traffic as I approach the Mainland. Once you leave Hope behind… I know, the pun that so many cannot resist, but it is a bit like magic.

Just not the kind that leaves you mesmerized, but the kind that makes you wonder how on Earth can the same thing happen again and again on the way to the coast.

On the way back from there too. Of course, it is summer and fun is in full swing everywhere. People travel, as we all do this time of the year, and there are festivals and various events everywhere. Plus, construction along the way, though to be fair, as long as people observe the signs, traffic runs smoothly enough, albeit slow.

Neither of the above is bad in any way, but the sheer number of people (in cars) gives the experience a different flavour.

  1. The irony…travel for leisure is what the affluent do…and then they bitch about the complications it all causes! Go where your muscle allows and enjoy simplicity!
