It's been a whilie since I've been on Active Rain - and as I was writing up this blog on WordPress and for Facebook I thought I really should get back to my 'first-love' - Active Rain!
A suburbanite being an urbanite for seven days ~ isn’t that the cat’s meow? Having lived in the country now for almost a dozen years, The Chilliwack Girl is realizing that she might really and truly be a city girl at heart. So when this two week job stint came up requiring me to work for one hour on a West Coast Express train trip to Vancouver – stay in Vancouver for 8-9 hours & free to do as I wish and then work another one hour on the trip back to Mission, I for one was not about to look a gift horse in it’s mouth. (Where do these idioms come from???)
Since it wasn’t likely that I’d be taking a vacation this year, I thought I’d turn these 7 days into a mini vacation. I would become a tourist in my own city – Country Mouse would become City Mouse for 7 days! So equipped with my little Pentax, my journal, and not always the best walking shoes, I decided to use only my transit pass and my feet to start exploring.
So from Gastown, Chinatown, Dr. Sun Yet Sen Gardens and Robson Street, to the Sea Bus, Lonsdale Quay, the West End, Granville Market, The Vancouver Art Galley, Vancouver Aquarium, Coal Harbour Sea Wall, Stanley Park Seawall, 14 Starbucks and 8 Street Food Trucks – stay tuned for my Vancouver Touristy Adventure – The Vancouver 7 Day Express!!
