    Vancouver is such a great city! I only had a day there at the end of my bear watching trip to BC but really enjoyed exploring Stanley Park and Granville Island – so need to go back and explore the rest sometime soon!

      Glad you enjoyed your brief visit – and fingers crossed you get to return soon…Vancouver is definitely a city that keeps on giving.. 🙂

  2. Vancouver had so much to offer and you’ve captured the highlights beautifully. I was there with my family on the way to Tofino for a wedding. We all had such a great time. Especially loved Granville Island and the Capitano Bridge (although my daughter did freak out a little). Great city, definitely in my top 10!

      Thanks, Alison. Unsurprisingly, I’ve yet to hear a bad word said about Vancouver!

  3. Please remember to let me know if you go back, I can give you some hard earned tips after my years of living there!

    The suspension bridge and space museum are great USPs – it is a maritime city with something a little extra for visitors!

    • Sara Dobak says:

      That’s a good way of putting it, Anna. I’m not that much of an urban person, but Vancouver is absolutely in my top 5 world cities so far.

  5. This does bring back many happy memories. And I still didn’t get to explore Gastown or see the iconic clock. I’ll just have to go back again – I certainly hope I do one day.

      Me too, Kathryn – and also to some other parts of Canada. Among other things, I’d love to see what the night skies are like in the northern regions, far from urban settlements!

    Enjoyed reading that Sara – Thanks for sharing.

      A pleasure, Nim! Vancouver will always be a special place for me 🙂

      • It’s hard for me to read this, as it’s coming up to a year since I moved back to the UK from Vancouver and as summer approaches I am really missing it!

        I agree that Granville Island is such a special place, in fact I’d like to recommend anyone going there to stop by my best friend’s Andrea’s cookie stand if they are at G Island, Short And Sweet Cookie Co, she makes the best flavoured shortbreads you can imagine and when this English girl was missing Blighty those biscuits were the only cure 🙂

          Awww Jaillan!I sympathise with your pangs of nostalgia – it was my 2nd time there, and I can’t imagine I’d ever get tired of it. I promise I’ll visit Short & Sweet Cookie Co. if I….no WHEN I go back!
