Where I stayed
When first we arrived, 'fresh off the bus' from the mountain paradisaical nature of Cultus Lake, Vancouver was a bit of an assault on the senses. People were everywhere, but we really had no idea where we were. Someone wrote on the bus station bathroom stall door "Do you get the impression this is a city of Zombies".. hmm, never thought about it but now I"m really freaked out... The directions we were given for the Skytrain did not match up with the actual Skytrain grid map at all! Our tension quickly escalated into a heated argument about what to do but luckily that didn't last long and Senica had the good suggestion to take the skytrain to the airport and then
Our one and only full day in Vancouver was jam packed. We skytrained back into Waterfront (which seemed to be close to all the downtown stuff.) Too bad it was raining but that seems to be the way their weather goes so we made the best of it. We walked down Robson Street which was recommended for lots of shops and eats. It was crazy to see so many fashion outlets! We walked down the street, chose a place where to have a bite to eat then hiked down to the seaside and had a nice little walk along the pier checking out the amazing yachts. We made our way to Stanley
The lovely couple picked us up at the hotel and took us to Grandville Island where we had dinner in a gorgeous Moroccan fusion restaurant. The food was amazing (beautifully presented and fabulous flavour) but the company was better - I wish there were more people in the world as kind as those two!
