Love for Vancouver

I must confess my love for Vancouver. Much like the video below, I find this city to be wonderfully diverse and easy to love.

Unlike the video, I am leaving Vancouver in July, less than a month away. It will be a bittersweet move, coming home to friends and family, yet leaving new friends and a beautiful city.

After the jump, see some of my favorite spots in this city, as well as a list of things I will miss about Vancouver.

Here is a short list of things I will miss about Vancouver:

  • Ikea
  • Cafés
  • Bike lanes
  • Mountains
  • Good coffee
  • Hiking trails
  • Mild weather
  • Public transit
  • Pacific Ocean
  • Blossoming trees
  • Vegan-friendly restaurants
  • Silly Canadians, eh? Cheers!
  • Luscious landscapes/gardens
  • French language on packaging
  • Friendly, healthy, happy people
  • Wildlife (whales, dolphins, seals, bald eagles, etc.)

    My wife and I spent a few days two summers ago in Vancouver and loved it–our Cruise ship departed from there. We wished we could have returned for the Olympics. Thanks for the photos, and the list.
