I am not ashamed to admit that the majority of the week I spent in Vancouver involved consuming delicious foods and drinks (and the rest of the time involved me being active to find new food and drinks). I don’t regret a second of it.
People in Columbus, Ohio brag about how diverse the food choices here are, and honestly, Columbus pales in comparison to Vancouver. Middle Eastern, Ukrainian, Chilean, Thai, Korean, Italian… and that’s only to name a few.
My favorite quote from my time in Vancouver was:
“I just don’t want to look back and think ‘I could have eaten that.'”
I haven’t even finished telling my story about Thailand, but I recently visited Vancouver and wanted to share a thought I had.
On our final day in Vancouver, it finally stopped raining. (And when I say raining, I mean… monsoon, torrential downpour nonstop all day, all night but people are still outside anyway rain). It was still pretty chilly, but the sun was out. I wanted to go to Grouse mountain, but my legs were so soar from all of the hiking I had done already so we visited a smaller park: Lynn Canyon.
We came across the suspension bridge and it was so crowded with people. I wanted a shot of the bridge empty, but after waiting for about 5 minutes, I gave up and captured everyone on the bridge. I was originally irritated by this, but then I realized that all of these people were here for the same reason I was. Everyone was taking pictures, enjoying the view from below, and enjoying the rocky walk across.
The more I travel, the more I realize how similar everyone is to each other.
(And it took a suspension bridge for me to realize that!)
I’ll upload more Vancouver pictures soon!
