The colours of a BC lakeside at sunrise.



What colourful places have you been to? Here at, the goal is simple: to highlight all of the country's most 'colourful' places and spaces—and hopefully add some humour and insight along the way. The journey started with a book and it continues here, with an online exploration of the nation's many colours on an even wider scale.

If you've ever lived in or travelled to any of the places I write about here or in the book, I'd love to hear your story. Leave a comment, or get in touch via the Contact page. It's a colourful quest to be sure; thanks for coming along.
