I went to visit the beautiful city of Vancouver, British Columbia earlier this year.
My sister was working there, and I thought it would be a great time to visit, as well as catch a glimpse of the Olympics! Before this trip, I have been to this lovely city in the winter of 2008 for a job interview.
I fell in love with this city.
I fell in love with the mountains.
I fell in love with the huge park within the city (Stanely Park).
I fell in love with the hiking trails (Cleveland Dam).
I fell in love with the food.
I fell in love with the fresh (and cheap) sushi.
I fell in love with mild weather.
This time around in Vancouver, I wanted to enjoy it like a local. Instead of hitting the tourist spots, I sauntered through my days in the city.
Eating a little. Perusing museums a little. Eating some more. Walking a lot. Ducking into coffee shops and reading a bit. Grabbing a snack. (There is a theme here ;)).
Observing the city on its final countdown towards the Olympics was really neat. Vancouver seemed like such a sleepy, lassez faire and relaxing city. Then it just filled up with people – in a matter of days. It seemed like the city just woke up to embrace – well, the entire world.
The entire time I was there, I only took one photo of myself 🙂
