I visited Vancouver for the second time with three good friends: VT members LBISCAIA (Luciana) and IGOAWAY (Lotus), and one of my best friends/former college roommate, Angie.
We drove to Vancouver from Seattle, and were welcomed to the city by VT member RMDW (Robert) and his mother. Robert's mom volunteers for the city tourism office, and from her condo, we were treated to a spectacular view of the city (see photo below.)
Robert was a terrific host, taking us to Granville Island, Yaletown (via the water taxi) and gave my friends a quick walking tour from Yaletown through the downtown area to the seawall of Stanley Park and around.
We saw alot of the downtown area, ate great food, and enjoyed the company of Robert and his friends Ahmed and Jessie. We thank them immensely for being such gracious and kind hosts to their beautiful city.
This lovely view of downtown Vancouver and the surrounding environs brought to you courtesy of RMDW's mom, who graciously welcomed us to the city.
What a perfect place for travelmates to converge! Pictured here near Granville Island: L to R: Angie (a future VT'er living in New York); LBISCAIA (Luciana, from Curitiba, Brasil); IGOAWAY (L Lou from Seattle, WA); moi (from Los Angeles, CA.)
- Pros:Beautiful, picturesque city; great sights, delicious food
- Cons:We hear the weather can get gloomy (though is was beautiful when we went); thieves on Robson St.
- In a nutshell:Highly recommend a visit! (Look up VT member RMDW, too!)
