Being back in the city meant getting some errands done. I picked up my camera from the camera store – I was getting the sensor cleaned and I swear, it feels that they did nothing beside messing with all of my settings. We got new batteries for our nice watches: they had died during their prolonged storage. Travis replaced his over-worn t-shirts.
Really though, that’s pretty boring stuff. The highlight of the day? The good stuff? We got an apartment in Kelowna! Yay!
A little while back we decided to switch our apartment hunting strategy. Originally we were looking at roommates or basements suites – things we felt would be OK to be temporary. The thing is, these were not cheap, and nobody was interested in renting a room to a couple. A few days ago Travis started to look at plain old, regular apartments instead: this was a good move. Before: far away from the downtown core, few options available. Then: right downtown, and loads of option. Surprisingly, the cost of total privacy isn’t all that much more from a share apartment, so we got really excited about the new prospects. We applied for an apartment, and today we learned that we got the place!
It’s totally perfect for us: lease is month-to-month, it’s a few blocks walking distance from the downtown core and two blocks from the beach. We’re so excited! And it gets even better: they have a few suites available, so when we land in Kelowna on May 1st we get to look at a few options and chose the one we prefer. How awesome is that?
We celebrated with some tasty lamb and veggies on the BBQ. Thanks mom!
