More about us

  1. We are a coupe in our 60's who are very active, love to travel and see and experience new things. Ria was born in the Netherlands and Pat is of Irish decent so those two countries are always of interest, although we have travelled all over the world. Our recent adventure was to walk 235km along the El Camino Trail in Spain with plans to do the whole Camino Frances in 2020.

  2. Pat is a high school teacher at a small school. Cool story actually as he was the janitor there for several years and in his forties returned to University whilst working full time and completed his BSC degree.
    I, Ria, had her own Wedding Design company, here in the Okanagan Valley, for 12 years which was very successful. I sold the company in 2015 and have been somewhat retired since. I took up swimming at age 60 and have won several medals in competition. My most recent accomplishment was to swim the Rattle Snake Island 3.1km swim here in the beautiful Okanangan Lake.

  3. We both love walking, Hiking, travelling, cycling and gardening. Ria loves the water, paddleboarding, kayaking plus interior design and building rustic furniture.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Our home is located on the edge of agriculture. It is very convenient to the airport and the UBC campus. We have bus lines with 1 minute walk that will take you almost anywhere. My favorite thing is the Rail to trails bike path. It is a paved wide bike path that can take you to the waterfront ( 10km ride) but can also take you to UBC or the airport. Chichester park is a regular walk for me. It is a natural wet lands and is just two minutes down the road.

Buzzy restaurants
Taki Sushi on Hwy 33, Specialty Bakery, the Packinghouse pub, which is just a short walk down the street. Zab Thai Food at Hwy 33 and Hollywood. Circle K store and a coffee shop within walking distance.
Cozy cafés
Cream and Bean. Leathead and Rutland Road. Easy walking distance.
Retail therapy
Of course there is Orchard Park Mall our main shopping center however my favorite is on Pandosy in the Mission. area. ( Beginning at KLO and Pandosy). Stop in at the Marmalade Cafe for a snack, lunch or just a coffee. Downtown is also brimming with wonderful shops, cafes, boutiques and unique shops and eateries.
Bit of culture
Center for the Arts is located on Water Street downtown. SO much culture in this area. Visit the Laurel Packinghouse with it's attached wine store. You'll love it!
Walks in the park
City Park is definitely a must. continue on under the bridge and onto Abbott street. You will see amazing homes and experience a wide walkway or cycle path , whichever you choose. Cycle to The hospital area nd stop for a coffe at the great little coffee shop across from the park. You won't be disappointed!
Spot of exercise
The YMCA is just a 2 minute drive from the house. It has a fabulous big fitness facility as well as a great pool. OR consider a 20 minute drive to H2O where you have everything inside, Pool, water slides, wakeboard surf and wave pool..... so much fun.
Day tripping
Oh you must go to Myra Canyon. If you fancy cycling look up Myra Canyon Cycle and start there, either walking, with your own bikes or reserve some for rental on line ( approx. $32)and they will be there when you arrive. Fabulous views! You will ride over tressles and through tunnels. It's an out and back route so do as little or as much as you like. Penticton channel. Its a bit of a drive but bring a floaty and float down a long channel then get bussed back to the start. #2 Cycle from Wood Lake in Lakecountry to Oyama along the beauitful turquiose waters of Kalamalka Lake. Stop for coffee at the other end and return. If it's a really hot day make sure you are well protected and have lots of water....there isn't a lot of shade! #3 Float the Penticton Channel. It's a bit of a drive to get there but the view along the way is worth it. Float the channel, bus back to the beginning and then you may wish to drive a little further and visit the Naramata Bench with its many, many wineries! Enjoy!
