The Inspiration

Explore Niche Places is a resource for people who love to vacation and explore. It’s a super fun new project for me and a work in progress so be sure to return often to see what’s new.

I was inspired to create this blog while exploring my environment and the businesses that have carved out a niche in their industry. My curiosity coupled with my love of writing and photography has motivated me to create informative and “evergreen” material for people to enjoy and share.

I hope that the features ignite a spark in you to visit and enjoy these amazing places! 

Are You A Niche Business?

Typically I seek out niche places, but if you have a cool niche place and are interested in a feature and commercial photography, then please get in touch. We can discuss the details, what’s included, and the cost of high-resolution photos if you wish to use them for your own digital advertising.

Who’s Tania Veitch?

The short version is that I’m passionate about creating and curating unique sharable content about BC. I design websites, shoot awesome photos, and write engaging content for lifestyle brands.

The Longer Version

I’m a Gen-X’er born and raised in British Columbia. I had a regular existence until “hurricane change” whipped through my life in 2013. It sent me on a life-changing 800-kilometre journey along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage and since then my life has been anything but normal.

I purged a lot including my townhouse, furniture and other “things” that I didn’t need. Then, I traveled in South America where I experienced amazing things and learned big lessons. Four months later I flew back to Canada and although my intention was to settle down on Vancouver Island, there are just so many amazing and unique places to explore here in BC! 

I’m currently working and living at Cathedral Lakes Lodge the highest fishing and wilderness lodge in Canada. During my days off I plan to visit the orchards and wineries that the South Okanagan is famous for!

I hope you enjoy my musings here on Explore Niche Places and that you find a unique BC treasure to explore. Follow me on Instagram for regular updates and stories!

My Camino Series

I’ve also decided to share my life-changing journey along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage with my Explore Niche Places followers because it’s a unique place that delivers a unique experience to all who walk the path. In my opinion, it is a very special niche place.
