Vancouver Travel Diary - One

Alright ... so I have been back from Vancouver for almost a week and I am still reminiscing about my trip! I had been waiting for the right opportunity to visit Vancouver for about three years now and was so happy when the bf got put on a project there. Here are some of my pics from the trip .... I hope you enjoy them :)  
Canada Place; cheaping out on breakfast; Gastown; view from our hotel
Views from a bike ride along the seawall. This is one of my favourite things to do in Vancouver. There are so many great views! I wish that Toronto was as bike friendly as Vancouver :(

staying active; getting some brunch; some funny statues near seawall (English Bay); a day of hiking with our two fave Vancouverites 
     hotel view; I enjoyed several walks along the seawall; posing in front on the Olympic flame; horses in Southlands 

We did a two hour kayak in Deep Cove. It was awesome to get out on the water. We both felt that it was so peaceful and relaxing. I have always wanted to kayak in Deep Cove. Now I can check that off my list! Maybe next time some paddle boarding? 

So that's basically what we did and the type of things I love to do when in Vancouver. Vancouver is a great place to do some outdoor activities and get some relaxation. We didn't have the best weather. It was raining and pretty cold for most of my trip. I left Toronto in the middle of a heat wave to wear my jacket in Van. Regardless we had great fun together and I can't wait to go again. 

One really important part of our trip that I haven't talked about is what we ate. Yup ... we ate out a lot since we had to buy all our meals. When the bf lived in Van we discovered some great eating spots and made sure to visit all of them again. Since food is super important in my life it is deserving of another post. That's what's coming up next!

Happy Canada Day and 4th of July blogger peeps!

Vancouver is a great place for a weekend trip. I think some biking around the seawall, eating and kayaking would make a great weekend!

I'm glad you like my pics!
