We had a monster bus journey to get to Vancouver, it took us 25 hours! Not nice! We only really went to Vancouver as a base to start our journey to the Rockies and neither of us really liked it to be honest. When we were there we went to the IMAX theatre for a double showing, we were bored one afternoon! We also went to a Canadian football game, we saw BC Lions v Winnipeg Blue Bombers. It was a good experience although the game itself can be a bit slow. There is about 30 seconds of action and then play stops for a few minutes in between which is a bit frustrating, it was good though.
Phil's dad flew in to meet us here as well to spend 2 weeks around the Rockies. Before we left we went to Granville Island Market which was good. The food there is fantastic, so much choice and everything is nice and fresh. We also had a look at Gastown which is where the first people settled in Vancouver.
And that was it for Vancouver, not a place that we will plan to re-visit.
