    Exploring Vancouver

    July 17, 2017 in Canada

    Our first week of our 7 week adventure has been full of catching up with family and exploring the wonderful city of Vancouver. We have been lucky enough to stay at Jay's cousins house where you can walk out the door to find some beautiful walking and hiking tracks. We have walked to Buntzen Lake and hiked the Diaz Vista Trail. 👌We are also very excited to have ticked some wildlife off our list to see, a black bear has woken us up in the night trying to get into the garage bin, we also followed a squirrel through a park, and earlier in the week saw a mummy and baby seal. We have also ticked off visiting the city for fresh salmon and biking around Stanley Park. We had a wonderful experience when a local told us about a best kept secret in Stanley Park, leaving the bikes behind and walking off the track and in through the thick bushes was an ancient carving in a big tree stump! Amazing!Read more

    Bicycle tour Stanley Park

    September 1 in Canada

    Stanley Park was beautiful! The perfect place to escape the busy and noisy Vancouver. We just enjoyed our time in the nature, because we aren’t City child’s. This was perfect for us. We drove trough the park a steep hill up, and we was in the middle of the forest, just gorgeous. Later we decided to drive along the coast. Unfortunately, there was also a lot of bikers, so we have to drive slowly. Besides we saw totem poles. This day was very cool.Read more

  • Day77

    * Mit gemieteten Fahrrädern (sehr gut) zum Stanley Park, am Seawall entlang um den Park, kurz durch den Park und wieder zurück (insgesamt 3 Stunden), anschließend Spaziergang durch Coal Harbour (Yachthafen) bis Canada Place (Andockstelle für Kreuzfahrteschiffe)

    * Highlights
    + ein Deutscher, der in sein Telefon schrie
    + Seawall ("vielbefahrene Autobahn" für Radfahrer)
    + Lions Gate Bridge
    + Beach Number 3
    + Beaver Lake (war zugewachsen)
    + Lost Lagoon

    * Insgesamt waren wir von Stanley Park (World's Ranked Park 1#) enttäuscht, da sehr viele Radfahrer, wenig Abwechslung, unspektakuläre Seen, sehr viel nicht begehbarer Wald und keine eindrucksvollen Wege... Coal Harbour und Canada Place haben uns viel besser gefallen.

    Stanley Park Ride

    April 26 in Canada

    Day three started late, finding both of us sitting in bed for over an hour at 1am, not able to sleep. So we slept in and got to breakfast well after 10am. Then given the fact that it was day three of clear skies we decided to hire bikes and tackle the ride around Stanley Park, Vancouver's notable entry point by water.

    Vancouvians were out walking, jogging, blading, skateboarding, cycling, sunbaking... even swimming... anything to soak up the gamma rays missed over their long cold winter. We kept telling them we just brought Brisbane weather with us. It was 22 degrees and like a typical winter's day in the Sunshine State.

    Sheree and I stopped plenty of times, massaged some butt, took plenty of photos and generally enjoyed the moments. We celebrated going under Lion's Gate Bridge, the greeter of many cruise liners over the years.

    These Canadians love the sun. They love being outdoors and love being relaxed and casual. We fit right in. Our muscles, on the other hand, are going to take some time to get over the rude shock of cycling for three hours.

    An afternoon well spent!

    Renting bikes was a pretty genius idea to go the 10km around Stanley Park and the waterfront. I fell in love with the house boat in blue. If it was't our last day in Vancouver, I would have loved to stay there for a while and go for run around the park every morning.

    Next time, I won't take photos while riding to avoid crashing my phone again 🤔

    Stanley Park

    April 3, 2015 in Canada

    With a small break from the constant drizzle in 'Raincouver' we hired a tandem bike for a leisurely ride around Stanley Park (aledgedly bigger than Central Park). Being a popular place for tourist and locals, the standout highlight was watching a family of racoons fighting over food next to the lake. To satisy our hunger we finished off the ride with dumplings at Dynesty before celebrating our new friend Emilys birthday at a yummy french restuarant in Gastown. Early night to get ready for our easter weekend at the Sunshine Coast.Read more

    Had a beautiful bike ride in Stanley Park today and ate at food stands all day. JapaDog is awesome and they need to open one in San Francisco!

    Stanley Park

    September 13, 2017 in Canada

    The cold and flu tablets have kicked in a bit and, although I am not feeling a million dollars, I at least feel human again.
    We caught the bus from Chinatown, across downtown Vancouver to the entrance are of Stanley Park. After a light lunch we set off on the Harbour side and managed to walk most of the Seawall before my energy levels started to lag and we decided to set off along some of the forest paths over the hill to Lost Lagoon, the Rose Gardens and back to the bus stop.
    A bonus for the day was listening to the Fleet Foxes have their sound check at the Malkin Bowl not far from the bus stop. We managed to find a hole in the screen and stood there enjoying their music. We googled them but unfortunately they were booked out.the Bowl is only a relatively small, intimate open-air venue.
