Exploring Vancouver, Canada!

We recently took a trip to Vancouver, Canada. I have always wanted to visit Canada and will certainly be back. Our hotel was right in the city centre, as we wanted to explore both the city and the more rural areas.

I was in awe at this baby deer that made an appearance, such beautiful creatures. We also met the resident bears Coola and Grinder, one of the friendly volunteers told us some fun facts about them, it was amazing to see them in real life.grouse mountain bearsIMG_1308

You will also find a huge assortment of cakes, pizza, bratwurst’s, hand-made chocolates, toffee apples and that’s just the food! There are lots of cute little shops full of trinkets and souvenirs, you can rent boats and book excursions too!steam clockYou have to pay a visit to Gastown, even if it’s just to see the iconic steam clock which you can hear whistle every quarter hour. Gastown is full of bars, art galleries, souvenir shops and food trucks!gastown autumn fallfall vancouver

    I lived in Vancouver for three years and absolutely loved it. It’s always fun to see my own country through a visitor’s eyes. Beautiful photos!

    Oh hey, I’m visiting Vancouver right now! Today is my last full day here 😀 Yesterday we walked the full length of the Stanley Park Seawall. It was a long walk and it was tiring, but we saw beautiful sights and I felt very proud of myself afterward. The cappuccino I had 2/3-ish through the walk was so satisfying (we took a lunch break at a restaurant), especially since it was chilly out. // I’m in loooove with your photo of the Gastown steam clock! I spent my second day in Vancouver at Gastown ^-^ -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    Wow it looks so beautiful there, especially in the autumn. I love all the colours of the leaves and seeing the baby deer must have been amazing. Canada is definitely on my bucket list of places to visit one day!
