Vancouver – 2015

I’m from Brazil and for a while I wanted to leave. My idea was to move to Miami (of course! American dream), but wouldn’t be possible because of legal issues. So, I started to research and decided for Vancouver, Canada. Still not easy, takes time, so I decided to go for vacation to know the city better.

I decided to go by myself and do whatever I wanted: 2 weeks English course, a half marathon and U2 concert.

Vancouver Public Library

Of course I spent some time visiting the Library. It’s just amazing! The building is so beautiful and it’s a big Library. A dream for book lovers!

Steamed clock in Gastown

This is one of the touristic points of Vancouver. It’s a cool neighborhood, lots of bars, restaurants and tattoo shops.

Vancouver Aquarium

The Vancouver Aquarium is very beautiful, lots of cool attractions. I love this Aquarium because all the animals are rescued, they treat the animals and keep them.

Aquabus

The aquabus is just a funny transportation. I took it to go to Granville Island (public market), just for fun.

Capilano Suspension Bridge

I didn’t have courage to cross the bridge (I did it last year). But is a pretty park, lots of green areas, activities, cafes and gift shops.

Seattle

I went to Seattle for the day. I always wanted to go and I also wanted to check out the outlet mall. I didn’t really like Seattle. After Vancouver is difficult to like Seattle. There is not much to do and I found a little dirty.

Whistler

The famous Whistler. Everybody loves Whistler. It was my first time seeing snow. Very cool village, specially for ski lovers, of course. The village was a big part of the winter Olympic games in 2010.

This was my adventure in 2015. I have to say that travel by myself was the best experience of my life. I had a very basic English and I had to talk to people because there was nobody to help me, I made friends, I went to bars by myself, I did everything that I wanted. It was a victory that I’m very proud of.

And I loved so much that I’ve lived in Vancouver for 2 years, just got my permanent residency and I plan to stay 🙂
