When it comes to Vancouver, I feel like I have blinders on. I only truly miss it when I’m away from it for a really long time and even then I miss the people and the great food found in the city. Once I’m back and the novelty wears off, Vancouver just becomes a place where I live. I know so many people who would love to come to Vancouver. What isn’t there to love?
Many who are intrigued by the mountains and the beach plus the melting pot of cultures and delicious foods. Yet, sometimes I feel like I take this city for granted. I always find it so intriguing to see tourist wandering the streets, or people making plans as to what to see and do in the city I call home.
In order to combat all this indifference to Vancouver and its surrounding areas, I’m going to set out and thoroughly explore it all. So announcing my newest adventure:
The summer of Vancouver! (#summerofyvr)
I’ll be dedicating my time to Vancouver and its surrounding areas. From the mountains to the beaches and from the food to the quirky neighbourhoods, I’m going to explore this city. I’ll be rediscovering what this great city has to offer, playing tourist, revisiting favourite haunts and hopefully discovering something new and cool.
Whenever people ask me for recommendations on Vancouver, I’m ashamed to say that I’ve been turning to friends who know the city better. Hopefully by the end of this summer I can better answer that question!
There is plenty to do this summer and here’s a brief teaser: from the night market… …to exploring a former fishing village… …to kayaking… …to checking out local breweries and wineries… …to exploring this city like a tourist.
Will you come along with me?
Do you feel like you take where you live for granted? Have you played tourist in your own city before? What do you want to know about Vancouver? What questions do you have about Vancouver?
