Jungle and tea – like a proper coloniser

What better way to end a hike in the jungle than a stop at a fancy English hotel for some tea. That’s what I did today. I went for my first solo hike and my first hike in the jungle. I picked the easiest hike to ease myself into it. I kept looking around, hoping to see more but I guess it’s not pristine, remote jungle; it’s a path between two small cities that’s pretty close to the highway. Regardless, I saw a waterfall, butterflies, tons of different types of ferns, a squirrel and a few birds but nothing to write home about (although I’m kinda doing that, aren’t I?). I went up to the observation tower and the landscape was beautiful, with mountains playing hide and seek with the clouds.

After the hike I headed to The Old Smoke House, where I had great locally grown tea with a slice of spicy fruit cake, 2 scones, home made strawberry jam (nothing compared to mine!) and thick cream. Yummy! The whole place felt very English and it was all proper. I thought that it was a great way to get energy back after a hike and I wondered why I never did that in Whistler after hikes instead of going for nachos 🙂 but then again, I could go (right now!) for a huge plate of fancy nachos… yum! With a margarita por favor!
