So here we are on the brink of a new adventure, 18 months, no scratch that, we are travelling till sadly money dictates we must return to work!! Our journey begins in Canada in Vancouver and we will be travelling from west to east over a period of 7 weeks.
We arrived in Vancouver to rain, rain and more rain!!! We had narrowly missed a major storm, which the night before had leveled trees around the Vancouver area, with one falling onto an RV parked, outside our AirBnB!
Today we have managed as much sightseeing as was possible, in the beautiful city of Vancouver. It has been described to us as a lovely city to walk in and I think that is very apt. We are staying at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel and this is a lovely hotel in a very nice location. There are three Fairmont hotels in Vancouver. Tomorrow our cruise ship the 'Star Princess' will be visible across the street, from the front of the hotel Les was here at 9.00am this morning to transport ...

At 7AM we brought over all the bags into our stateroom and told Lorenzo (who was already busy preparing for the guests who'd take our place) that ...

When we arrived back in our street we heard loud, rhythmic drumming. The FIFA World Cup game between Japan & the Netherlands was on this evening and these were the Japanese traditional drummers arriving. There were also the Dutch in their quirky orange regalia. It sure is weird to be so close to all this action, and noise.
We walked 10 kms today.
