TAKE ME BACK!
Seriously. The smog here is killing my vibe.
My second day in Vancouver was spent conducting a training session, but after 3pm it was time to explore more of the city!
Nobody stays inside. Seriously. Everyone’s outside biking, running, kayaking or dragon boat racing. I think by now y’all know how I feel about exercise.
That being said, I think if I were to live in Vancouver I would at LEAST invest in sporty looking clothes and walk around with my hands on my hips breathing heavily like I JUST stopped running. But I would never run. Everyone would just think I did. That way we all win (except my cardiovascular health, but f*ck that – pass the butter).
I was lucky enough to travel up Mt. Seymour and catch an epic view of Vancouver.
See that white peak in the distance? No, that’s not a cloud like I thought. That’s Mt. Baker in Washington State. Which freaked my freak. Why you so big? How you do?
We then made a detour to Deep Cove for what was probably the most idyllic little neighbourhood I’ve ever seen. Read idyllic as granola and the perfect place to set a murder mystery TV show.
The next day it was time to pack up and head back to Toronto.
I was ready to get home to my own bed (and my pets) but sad to leave such a beautiful place. The candy store LICK right beside my gate at the airport made being at an airport for 5 hours by myself worth it.
It got a little weird when the girl who worked there said, “Oh wow, are these gifts for someone back home?”
No. I just needed $10 worth of chocolate for myself. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO JUDGE ME!
The flight home was one long marathon of Say Yes to the Dress and Diners, Drive-in’s and Dives (Triple D as us uber fans call it). I didn’t land in Toronto until 11:30 pm but was really excited to see my Manpanion waiting for me. I almost cried from exhaustion (I’m that girl) but was so happy to see him and drive back to the Hammer.
Two days in Vancouver was not enough. I can’t wait to go back for a proper visit someday and see the rest the city.
Vancouver, I love you. I’ll never forget you. Thanks for letting me spend sometime in your glory.
