Lots of photos ahead! A quick recap of our trip to Vancouver.

Day 0 (travel day): arrived exhausted in the evening and had Ramen Jinya near the hotel – yum!

Day 1: Quick breakfast at the coffee shop by the hotel, beautiful boat ride with Dale’s aunt and uncle around the harbour and False Creek, homemade pizza dinner at their house with their gorgeous dogs, fireworks over English Bay with a bazillion other people.

Day 2: Waffles at Le Petit Belge, walk across the Cambie bridge, bus out to the Museum of Anthropology at UBC. Cab to Granville Island where we had some lunch at Tony’s Fish and Oyster and wandered around. Dinner was sushi with a friend who’s moved out to Vancouver, it was lovely to catch up.

Day 3: breakfast at Finch’s Tea and Coffee (super delicious), bus to Stanley Park for a trip to the Aquarium, then a walk around a bit of the park. We had some takeout from the H-Mart in our hotel room for lunch, and went out to Cactus Club in Yaletown for dinner.

Day 4: Breakfast at Gutenberg’s cafe by the library, a loooong bus/travel saga (there was an accident on the bridge, so we had to bus back down and take the SeaBus instead) to Grouse Mountain. We had some lunch at the cafe and admired the view. Dinner of delicious takeout sushi from Tsuki sushi bar.

Day 5: Yummy breakfast at Nosherie then the Vancouver Art Gallery, which was awesome! There was a Douglas Coupland exhibit and Lost in the Memory Palace, which I had actually seen part of before, in Edinburgh. Lunch was at Meat&Bread (a grilled cheese and a porchetta sandwich), then we walked through Gastown and got Japadog for dinner.

Very last outing of the trip was a walk to fancy bakery Thierry for macarons, a croissant, and tea. Then over to English Bay for another fireworks display! It was a lovely end to a great trip.
