    Full Description

    Authors Dave Doroghy and Graeme Menzies take you to find the cool, the quirky, and the unusual places hidden in Victoria amidst the fascinating architecture and glorious outdoor scenery.

    Visit the place where author Rudyard Kipling slept. Explore Canada’s largest ant farm. Answer the call of nature in a pub’s haunted loo. Or take a date to a secluded, waterfront fish-and-chips shop. See the world’s tallest totem pole while it still stands.

    If it’s history you’re after, consider that James Cook was the first non-indigenous person to set foot near here in 1778. Later, the Hudson’s Bay Company established the spot as a trading post, naming it Fort Victoria after the reigning British queen. Vestiges of the old British Empire can still be spotted in the majestic colonial buildings in the inner harbour, the red double decker buses on its busy streets and the occasional old fashioned British telephone booths. God Save the King!

    About the Author

    Dave Doroghy began his love affair with Victoria in the early '90s spending three-years working for and organising the 1994 Victoria Commonwealth Games. That led to various senior management positions within NHL, the NBA and more recently the 2010 Olympic Winter Games where he was the Director of Sponsorship Sales. In his free time, Dave enjoys running, cycling, bee keeping, and of course writing. He is the co-author of 111 Places in Vancouver That You Must Not Miss and 111 Places in Whistler That You Must Not Miss. He is also the author of Show Me the Honey: Adventures of an Accidental Apiarist. Dave divides his time amongst the three cities he writes about. Dave and Graeme host a podcast about all things related to their 111 series books on a show called “Vancouver and Whistler Places.”

    Graeme Menzies has lived in several cities across Canada, the United States, England, and Brazil, but the coast and communities of British Columbia are among the most beautiful places he’s ever been in the world. An international marketing and communications profession with experience in the arts, public policy, technology, sport, and higher education, Graeme's curiosity fuels his passion for discovering new places and for shedding new light on old ones. Among other works, including a biography of HMS Discovery’s botanist Archibald Menzies (1754-1842), he is co-author of 111 Places in Vancouver That You Must Not Miss and 111 Places in Whistler That You Must Not Miss. He also co-hosts a weekly podcast with Dave Doroghy called “Vancouver and Whistler Places.”
