    Vancouver: base camp for the trip

    April 13, 2017 in Canada ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    Yesterday, we crossed the border with the Greyhound and arrived in our amazing air bnb appartment with its stunning view over the city and the mountains (as long as the clouds are not covering them). We got to know our nice host Michelle and her lovely dog, Baylea. Luckily, they let us return to the flat every time we get back to Vancouver during our time in Canada.

    Mission of the day: buying tons of food and getting ready for the trip.
    My personal mission of the day: cuddling Baylea, walking her through the park and protect all the squirrels from her :)

    Day 12 and already back in the city

    April 26, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    Being back in Vancouver means the end of our roadtrip, returning our car and getting used again to busy city life :/

    Uncommon for Vancouver however, the city welcomed us with perfect weather to do the free walking tour in the neighborhood of Gastown (named after that smart guy Gassy Jack who figured that back in pioneer times Whiskey was THE incentive in recruiting good workers).

    Also there are other exciting things to discover randomly: a clock that pretends to be fueled by steam, shops full of maple (syrup) even though I haven't seen any real maple trees in Canada yet and also some indications of who is especially appreciated and respected by the Canadians in Vancouver and who is not.

    In many occasions, you get reminded how "old" can be defined differently in other parts of the world. So at this point, it is essential to say, HAPPY 150th BIRTHDAY, CANADA! 🇨🇦🥂🎉
