... I’m trying to decide what ministry to be involved in at the church I’m going to and I don’t know! In my mind I think I need to really pray and find out where God wants me, and I do believe that is true to some extent. But then it occurred to me, that wherever people are who don’t know the Lord, they’re all blind. They all need him. And so I guess I can choose any ministry, as along as I am committing myself to these people to pray for them and love ...
... It was fantastic. It was my first time going to a sporting match of any persuasion! I know hard to believe? It was great, we found ourselves cheering on the Giants and getting wrapped up in the excitement - even though we didn't know what was going on at the start. Well actually we didn't even realise there are three periods until the game finished and we thought there was one quarter to go. I know - go figure! Tonight we went to a local pub in the Donally ...
My thanks and appreciation to you for following my path and sharing in my adventure.
... had been delayed again and we would now not get home until close to midnight. I called Delta to see if we could get on an earlier flight....unfortunately there were no seats. So, another call to my parents and this time they agreed to let us take a cab.
As we got closer to Seattle, another call from Delta came in and we now werent going to get home until about 1:30 am. We made the decision ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBuchan Hotel Vancouver
The Buchan Hotel is on a luscious tree lined street next to a charming garden but my heart sank as we entered the lobby. It looked quite shabby and poorly maintained. I was apologizing to my travel companion and kicking myself for not making a good choice. The TV was smaller than my iPad and had only a few awful stations. Tiny bath with only a shower and barely room to get around the beds.
We went out immediately in search of food and discovered an ENDLESS array of multinational cuisines less than a block away. These all looked a bit shabby as well.
HOWEVER: That night the same Denham Street, a half block away, lit up the night. The street was packed with Ferraris, Mazeratis, Bugattis, Bentleys and a few humble Porsches. Neon lights blazed and young hipsters threaded their way up and down the street in search of the perfect meal. And they didn't go far to find it. I discovered a large percentage of the restaurants I had placed on my "go to" list were with a block or two of the Buchan Hotel. Handmade Asian noodles, sushi bars, Greek, Italian, and countless subcultures were fully represented. Stanley Park was just a few blocks away and a walk of several blocks in either direction took us to the water. Robson Street, shopping mecca of Vancouver, was just two blocks.
AND, as far as the hotel goes, it was clean, the towels were fresh and fluffy, the linens were immaculate, the staff was extremely helpful. Coffee available in the lobby in the morning. The Wi-Fi was a bit wobbly but they took off the $2 charge when we asked.
SO: If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive place to sleep in an ideal location, try the Buchan Hotel.
