Vancouver Surprise

November 2, 2011

Hubby’s vacation was – unplanned. I say that but it’s actually – I was out of the plan – because he told me he’s going to the US and perhaps Canada only after he had the plane tickets. — Yes, spontaneous and I don’t really mind anyway, he deserves his own “him time.”

He didn’t avail of anyΒ vacation dealsΒ but he accompanied an aunt to visit her aunt – his grandmother so he saved bucks off the plane tickets and accommodation. He took time off seeing friends in California particularly LA and San Francisco and went about the state before heading to Las Vegas and parts of Nevada.

A surprise for me was indeed the Canada trip. He met a very close friend of mine whom I haven’t seen since 2001…10 long years. Had he the time he would have visited our newborn nephew in Winnipeg but it’s at the other end of Canada so it didn’t happen.

Β Hubby having arrived 4 days ago had only shown me some photos, some stories here and there. I’m sure as the days progressed there’d be chunks of stories he will share to me. For now here are some of the photos he posted on Facebook – a welcome sign, part of Olympic village and a Japanese garden, I’ve yet to ask him about.

  1. I haven’t been to Canada yet, but I’d love to visit it some time soon. My aunt lives there and she said it’s such a nice country to live in. Anyway, love the photos! πŸ™‚

  2. Amazing place! We have relatives there, and they want me to go there and work. But I am still enjoying my life here. Will probably go there as tourist πŸ™‚

  3. How exciting and beautiful! We are looking at taking a roadtrip through Canada and this seems like a wonderful place to stop by on the way to Alaska.

  4. Wow — Vancouver looks and sounds amazing. I’ve always wanted to visit and after reading this post, I am more likely to visit.
