Last week, I went to Vancouver for a visit and I had an incredibly productive week. Since I grew up in Vancouver, I didn’t do anything touristy, but I did a lot since I had perfect weather, friends & family to see, mountains to climb, beers to drink, etc.
In 7 days I managed to:
1. Attend a wedding of my high school friend
2. Go on a 2 day girls trip to the Sunshine Coast. Very relaxing.
3. Take a 2 day Trad Climbing course in Squamish
4. Eat good food
5.Drink a lot of craft beer
There is now so many craft brewries in Vancouver and it’s so cheap compared to Hong Kong! Yes, I do think $6 beer is cheap though if I add the tax, alcohol tax and tip I realize I only think its So cheap due to the favourable exchange rate. There used to be barely any when I lived in Vancouver 3 years ago. So that has changed. (Along with the tons of marijuana dispenseries now)
6.Climb at The Hive North Shore
7.Climb at Scully’s Hangout in Lynn Valley
8.Climb Star Chek in Squamish
9. Get my first tattoo
A totally action packed week admist the jetlag. I really do love Vancouver when the weather is perfect. It is just so pleasent. Maybe one day I will move back, but not anytime soon. It will be good to visit every summer though.
