A Trip To British Columbia

After spending six incredible hours in Vancouver, I became quite anxious that my Canadian adventure started off too marvelous, and that everything following Vancouver would be a letdown. But luckily…it wasn’t!

In fact, entering Vancouver by plane, I had a pretty epic view of the water (which I was so glad to see, considering that Denver is the dryest city I’ve ever been too and there’s literally no water to be found)!

Vancouver is a coastal seaport in Canada, located in the lower region of British Columbia.  It is home to around half a million people! From Denver to Vancouver, it’s a total distance of about 1,783.15 kilometers, so by plane, it would take a good two and a half hours.

After arriving in Vancouver and checking in to the Holiday Inn Hotel, it didn’t take long for me to lie down and relax!

After relaxing for a bit, I knew I couldn’t spend my afternoon lying down and doing nothing, so, my family and I decided to head over to a nearby seafood restaurant, the Blue Canoe, which was located right beside the water. It was incredible!

For dinner, I ate the most scrumptious, the most flavorful fish tacos I have ever eaten in my entire life! It consisted of fresh fish, a tomato and basil paste, avocado, greens…all wrapped up in freshly hand-made tortillas…YUM!

And for dessert, I ordered a delicious lemon tart topped with fresh local berries and powdered sugar!

After a delicious dinner, my sister and I decided to take a few pictures of the view and water!

In front of us was an incredible view of the dock and the beautiful sky.

Honestly, I couldn’t ask for a better way to end the day. I can sum it up in three words: Beautiful. Stunning. Amazing.
