We made it! :D Landed in Vancouver at 11:30am (7:30pm UK time). The flight was mostly smooth. Had a bit of a hiccup before we even got to border control this side though, my passport somehow crept its way out of Jacobs bag and got left on the plane! I had a moment of panic, but luckily an air hostess found it and handed it in. (Not such a good start to our adventure, hey!) Nevertheless we got through immigration within an hour which was good and made our way to our apartment in good time.
It feels so surreal being here. We found a grocery store to grab some dinner and I could have spent ages in there just looking at the weird and wonderful food they sell (most of it being unhealthy!) On the way back we spotted our first black canadian squirrel :)
Passing through town you can watch oriental food being cooked in the windows, find a coffee shop or two on almost every corner, and a mixture of unusual buildings and religious signboards quoting blessings outside churches (which looks very American.) I'm looking forward to exploring more of the huge streets and quirky shops.
It's approx 5:30pm here now..been up for 20hours and its a struggle staying awake to get into the time zone..so it's time to get ready for bed :)
Goodnight/good morning! X
