Where I stayed
What I did
I have just returned from a week in Vancouver Canada, I stayed with mike and brady they're staying in vancouver for six weeks before they go upto whistler for the ski season.
I had a really good time and could see myself going back there in the near future the people are super nice really laid back and even the bums are polite wishing you a good day on your way even if you didnt give them any money.
There's also alot of artsy stuff going on like good street performers my favourite was this old dude pushing 50 doing his rendition and open mic nights at bars and film festivals and all that stuff, One of the people that performed at our hostel played a harp it was pretty amazing.
theres loads of cool bars to go to, not as cheap as the U.S but still cheaper than home, all weekend and occasional weeknights they close off the downtown area to cars thats another plus.
I spent another day riding around stanley park, granville island and the outer areas of vancouver all along the shorefront, saw heaps of nice houses and cool waterfront units. The day was kinda of ruined after liams bike fell apart after he took a massive stack, this resulted in us havin to walk for quite a while to swap it for a new one, still good times all in all.
Went to an ice hockey game one night and i think its my new favourite sport! the entertainment in the breaks is also top notch. The game came down to overtime then penalties unfortunately our team lost.
The journey back home comprised of two flights and three buses and took nearly 30 hours so im quite tuckered out.
