    Return to Vancouver

    September 5, 2017 in Canada

    Today we crossed the border from Bellingham to Vancouver, a distance of only 54 miles. The border crossing is only about 25 miles from Bellingham, so it was again good to be back in metric!!!

    We drove straight to our hotel, as we needed to stow our cases to return our hire car, so we didn't have to lug them back. Very fortunately, our room was ready at 10:30 am, so we were able to have them safe in our room.

    We then did a big hike around Vancouver. It was very hazy today, so useless going up in the tower. Wewanderedaround the city, and walked to Granville Island, where some great public markets are held. They havE fantastic fresh food, and we bought a box of beautiful fresh berries of all types, and had chowder while sitting listening to street performers play.

    We caught a tiny water taxi from Granville Island, to Yuletide. The BC Stadium is here, and we wandered around iT before heading back to our hotel, where Cathy is napping, and Paul and I readying our luggage for the bigjourney home.

    Our flight is not until tomorrow evening, so we will stow our bags and get a day travel pass and see what we can see...

    Vancouver at last

    September 14 in Canada

    It all started with a Hurricane, Florence, that set a path directly towards the Carolina coast, due to hit the day we were to fly out. Our trip turned into a logistical race, with Dale boarding up the house while I changed travel arrangements to drive to Atlanta for 6 hours, stay at a pet friendly hotel and then board the dog and cat. We couldn’t fit 4 adults, large suitcases, backpacks, dog (Dunbar) and cat (Moon) into my Murano, so Dale and Reinhart drove separately in a well used Jeep with the pets while Josie and I breezed along in my nice car.

    Somewhere around 600,000 people evacuated that day. Did mention that it was a mandatory evacuation, due to a Category 2+ hurricane heading our way?

    Along the way, the jeep developed cooling problems, so Dale and Rein (age 90) had to drive with the heat on on this hot, humid day, so that the car wouldn’t overheat.

    We made it to Atlanta, took the pets to a PetSmart Pet Hotel where they will spend 10 days in luxury. The jeep will be at the dealer while we are gone and my pet-and-jeep-knowledgeable brother will be the emergency contact for both.

    We have flown to Vancouver to await our cruise at the very nice Marriott Parq, staying until Sunday.

    Vancouver Tag 1

    May 7, 2016 in Canada

    Boa, endlich angekommen...! Sieht aus wie in München mit den Bergen vor der Nase ☺

    Der Flug war gar nicht mal so schlimm wie erwartet, Beinfreiheit ging , TV Programm war ok und auf ein höfliches Nachfragen beim Steward gabs auch noch mal extra Pasta, Puddings und Co. Fühle mich total vollgefressen 😥

    Erschreckender weise geht Darios miniziöse Planung auf - Punkt 15.43 uhr Ortszeit nehmen wir die Bahn Richtung Centre und genießen die autonome Fahrt der Skytrain.

    Als wir im Center ankamen mussten wir noch unnser Hotel finden , auch hier muss ich Dario eine gute Planung eingestehen. Es war einfach zu finden, nur hat sich erwiesen , dass mein Rucksack wesentlich praktischer war als sein Koffer .

    Die Freude angekommen zu sein trieb uns gleich wieder aus dem Haus. Manno mann was für Eindrücke man in kürzester Zeit hier gewinnt.
    Häuser die aussehen wie das Coloseum andere widerrum wie futuristische Hochhausglaspaläaste,
    an jeder Ecke Strasenmusiker, Obdachlose, Modeverirrte und Sportfans. Nebenbei wohnen wir Tür an Tür am Fußballstadion der white caps.
    Man verhungert hier gewiss nicht, es gibt überall die Möglichkeit sich mit verlockenden Speisen vollzuschlagen.

    Was noch besonders bemerkenswert hier ist, sind die ganzen Autos. Riesen große Trümmer umd immer wenn man denkt man hat schon das größste Auto gesehen kommt irgendwo eins um die Ecke das noch größer ist oder teurer.

    Gegen neun Uhr abends , 6 Uhr früh deutscher Zeit , verließen uns unsere Kräfte , also haben wir noch ein Betthüpferl genommen und sind dann früh schlafen gegangen, lets see was Tag zwei bringt in einer Stadt direkt am Pazifik; )

    Dreamliner

    June 18, 2017 in Canada

    Wunderbar wozu Technik fähig ist. So ein Dreamliner von Boing mit "Smooth Sailing" Technik (oder wie das heißt), da macht fliegen schon fast wieder Spaß - trotz Enge und all dem.
    Vancouver empfängt einen am 18.6. mit grauem Wetter und Regen. Viel Regen. Das Hotel "Sandman" ist ok, das Zimmer ordentlich - die AC Geräte auf dem Dach vor dem Zimmerfenster ein Graus. Es lebe der Jet Leg!

    Goodbye, Smokey

    February 13, 2015 in Canada

    Today, my sister's young male black cat "Smokey" died in a car accident, while exploring new territories and hunting grounds. He was so good in being a cat. We'll miss you. ;-(
    (with: Smokey and Spot)

    I have not been posting a lot lately because I'm sick and in bed since 8 days but it's getting better. Another weekend of rest and I should be fine.

    A joyless last experience...

    April 26, 2015 in Canada

    What a great weekend in Seattle with the buddies! :-)
    But at the end of the day something joyless happened. We went to a restaurant and parked our car at the close antique shop. When we came back after an hour or so, our car was towed. To get it back, we had to pay 440$ (!). This is fraud at its finest! Moreover, unbelievable how rude and aggressive the guy there was!
    You can see the name of the company in the picture. When you are in Seattle, be cautious where to park your car. Don't give these thieves any more dollars!Read more

    MLS: Whitecaps versus Philly

    May 9, 2015 in Canada

    I was at a soccer match today (Major League Soccer) and really surprised about the high level. It's comparable to the Swiss Super League.
    First half really rocked, with a lot of chances.
    Result: Vancouver Whitecaps vs Philadelphia Union 3:0
