Since travelling is off the table for the foreseeable future, I thought I’d share some photos from a past trip. I was lucky enough to visit beautiful Vancouver on Canada’s west coast back in April 2018. If you ever have the chance to go, I highly recommend it. Mountains, ocean, gorgeous gardens, good coffee, friendly people. Some take issue with all the rain Vancouver tends to get, but I found it cozy (I also noticed it tended to clear up by early afternoon on most days anyway). I hope I can go back again– there was so much I didn’t get to see last time (like whales!)
I got these shots (and the “Welcome to Vancouver” sign) on the way to Stanley Park…
And these were taken at the Vancouver Aquarium, located inside the park (an amazing not-for-profit facility that everyone should check out and support).
The VanDusen Botanical Garden was the highlight of my trip. I would go back to Vancouver just to see this place again.
Rhododendrons were blooming…
And sakura (cherry trees)…
The camellias were gorgeous! I wish they grew here in Toronto.
Is this place even real?
The whole garden was amazing.
Have you been to Vancouver? What did you think? Share in the comments.
