Vancouver – best city

Vancouver – best city

We saw the city at its best. Young couples jogging along the beach. Tourists walking around Granville Island. Six-pack men playing beach volleyball. Following one of their worst winters for many years – it was springtime in Vancouver.

One moment we are in a pine forest in Stanley Park – the next surrounded by gleaming skyscrapers. But whilst global capital has replaced the old warehouses and timber mills, it hasn’t helped the housing situation. Vancouver has the dubious distinction of being third in the world for unaffordable housing.

We stayed here three nights and could easily have stayed longer. Without a doubt the best city we have visited so far on our gap-year.
