With sights like these...


BC Waterfall/Forest
(Kev, Claire, Me, Jeff, Becca)
How could one not want to live in Vancouver British Columbia? I can't remember seeing so much green in my life. Not to mention all their plastic bags are biodegradable, their transit system is electric (save for a few buses) and they have the best tuna tataki I've ever tasted, oh and you know, Whistler. Which is only two of the most beautiful hours you've ever spent in a car away. I only went a week, but suddenly Toronto doesn't feel like home. It's familiar, sure, but I left my heart on the west coast... and my blackberry. D'oh :( I hope to post a gallery of the trip soon, once all the photos have been processed by T.

I am so jealous! All I've been surrounded by this last year is flat corn fields and power lines. I can't wait until I go out west this summer!

I keep telling my (Canadian) husband that if we ever decide to move to Canada, Vancouver wouldn't be a bad spot. We're kinda stuck on San Diego for now, though. :) Can't wait to see more photos!

I love vancouver but... Our buses during the snow freeze and the whole transit system goes down... and if you leave the downtown vancouver, there really is no transit! But our food here is EXCELLENT and so much variety! Walk down the street and you can visit almost every country in the world!
Glad you had a good time here:)
