After a trip to Capilano, we had to make our way to the nearby Grouse Mountain. There was so much to discover and more hiking than we had time for. We’ll have to go back sometime!
Bridges and boardwalks and trees, oh my!
While I would have preferred to get in earlier, it was still a fun experience!
If you find yourself in Vancouver B.C., chances are, you’ll wind up checking out the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. To be frank, this is a tourist attraction (which I tend to shun).

I love the tiny discoveries in a new city. This filled me with a fascination so simple and true… reminding me it’s the little things in life that are worth living for!
If you’re anything like me, a little child still resides in your heart, excited to pop out when the world manages to amaze an experienced and jaded mind. This child oohs and aahs at simple mechanics and perfect patterns, tiny memories of less complicated times.

While my first trip outside the U.S. was Japan, this was my second, believe it or not. A mere six-hour drive from Portland, and you can escape the U.S. for Canadian hospitality. We took a long weekend for the Fourth of July holiday and ended up celebrating Canada Day on July 1st. It was something truly special as they really know how to be patriotic. We hit all of the tourist areas and also hit up some amazing places within the city. We enjoyed great food and stayed in a mid-rise apartment building with a view of the city. I left thinking, why didn’t I do this sooner? Continue reading “Our First Canada Adventure – Vancouver B.C.”
