Change of continent to catch up with friends who are staying in Whistler for the season. Spent a few days in Vancouver to check out the place as its supposed to be a really great city. Vancouver itself is busy but is still a good place to spend a few days. Caught an Ice Hockey game (even if the Canucks lost to Colorado Avalanche- gah!), which was great as it was my first ever hockey game! Wandered around downtown, Gastown and Chinatown for a bit as well (each pretty cool in its own way, very distinct neighbourhoods). Went out onto Stanley Park, very beautiful part of the world, and the aquarium was good too!

Then caught the Greyhound bus up to Whistler (just like Disneyland but with more snow!) to see T and Jess. Its a great place to be if you have lots of money, but managed to do it fairly cheaply and even got out onto the slopes to do some skiing (although I came off the mountain aching after falling over several hundred times!!!) But it was good to see T and Jess again!

Came back to Vancouver for the final few days and stayed for half price in the very posh Delta hotel near the airport, which was very nice!!!

Take care
