Vancouver

Vancouver to Revelstoke

I hadn't time to write a blog post yesterday, as we traveled the whole day. We choose a different route back to Merrit, so that we could visit Whistler too. It was a very hot day, whith temperatures up to 36° at some places. For a distance of approx 50 kilometres, a whole valley was full of smoke, probably due to a wildfire near, but we haven't actually seen any fire.

Arriving in Merrit, we had a nice barbecue and a short trip to the local pubs.

Vancouver, Day 2

I had a great day yesterday in Vancouver, we were sightseeing the whole day, Vancouver is really a great city!

We started the day by visiting Grouse Mountain, to get there, we had to take: Bus - Skytrain - Seabus - Bus - Superspeed Skyride (If we were in Switzerland, it would simply be called Grouse Gondola, but in Vancouver, that is not enough! :)). Up there, you have a great view over Vancouver, and there are two grizzly bears, a funny Timerjack Show and a Birds Show, which we both visited.

Yesterday, we went back to Vancouver with a ferry. Again, because the first one was already full, we had to wait almost 2h until we could finally go aboard. And then, it took us quite much time to drive through Vancouver and look for a place to stay.

In the later afternoon, we walked a bit through the city, have eaten a burger at Red Robin (where two swiss woman sat directly beneath us) and used the skytrain.

Today, we will probably visit the Grouse Montain, Stanley Park and Vancouver Downtown.
