Vancouver, Here I Come!


This weekend I am traveling to Vancouver for work. Luckily, they are allowing me to stay three extra days and I fully intend on taking advantage of this vacation! I am that person who goes sightseeing and reads every little sign, studies all the artifacts, and snaps every possible picture.

This is going to be my first real visit to Canada. I went last month to Edmonton but had absolutely no free time. Needless to say, I am stoked! I hear very good things about Vancouver. Only downside about this trip is that everything is more expensive in Canada. It's very pricey for the tours that I'll be taking and my hotel stay is not cheap. BUT I have to look at it this way: I didn't have to pay for my airfare and who knows if I'll ever get a chance to go back. So I need to take it all in.

Here are some beautiful Vancouver pictures:






I'm also going to visit Victoria, the capitol of British Columbia. I look forward to seeing the beautiful Butchart Gardens...



...and having afternoon tea at the Empress Hotel!



I'll be sure to provide a recap. I'll catch up with you all next week!

Have a wonderful time and that is great that your work is allowing you to stay 3 extra days! I went to Canada once as a kid to visit family and remember how beautiful it was. We went to Nova Scotia and Quebec.

The photos you posted are breathtaking and having afternoon tea at the Empress Hotel looks nothing short of fabulous. I look forward to your recaps, my friend!

P.S. No worries on being busy and I completely understand. It has been like that for me too as of late. That doesn’t surprise me at all that you were looking at the same anchor dress at Target ;)
