Vancouver have been blessed with geographical location. It is a Canada’s gateway to Pacific, with business and trade flowing through it. But for a regular citizen, what is more important, probably, is that the location is just incredibly beautiful, with so many places to go and things to see. Beaches, mountains, forests, waterfalls, lakes – almost anything you can wish for is just a short drive from the city.
Despite cloudy and rainy weather I still decided to continue my exploration of amazing city called Vancouver. Here are some photos from onf of the top Vancouver attractions – the Vancouver Seawall.
Today my traditional weekend getaway brought me to the Deep Cove , both community and bay. Located only 13 km from downtown Vancovuer, it attracts visitors with numerous recreational activities – hiking, kayaking, sailing, cycling, etc.
I am very impressed with beauty of nature in British Columbia. I could never think that spectacular views of mountains could be so abundant within big city; that so many lakes, waterfront parks and trails could be just a 20 minute drive from busy downtown with skyscrapers. I try to explore and discover more of it whe I have a slightest chance.
I keep exploring Vancouver area. Autumn is very rainy in Vancouver, a sunny day on a weekend is a treasure that has to be used wisely!
As you may know, I am not a big fan of flying. But I admire aircrafts as engineering marvels. There are many aviation fans worldwide, and many of them have quite an interesting hobby – plane spotting. I decided to see that is it like?
I really love trains. Big and powerful machines! Montreal is really great place for railfans – it has amazing railroad museum, the Exporail. Is it the biggest railroad museum in Canada with over 140 pieces of rolling stock! A great place to feel yourself a kid again, and discover more about railroad history and how it helped to shape Canada!
During my last trip to Ottawa we had a couple of hours to spare and I decided to take a look at Canadian Museum of Nature. I love museums in Canada, what can I say…
Every May Ottawa becomes a top destination for tourists from all over North America. They all come to see over a million tulips displayed throughout the city. But do you know why? Where do all these tulips come from and how it started?
