Home

There's been some Paris and France chitchat here lately. My family is very excited about our upcoming travels.

But this is where we live. Won't you come and visit?

My boys and I visited Vancouver a few years ago on their "college visits" weekend. We had SUCH a great time, walked over the bridge, went to the Shakespeare festival and loved shopping at HBC. Thanks for making me remember a wonderful time!

SO many familiar sights there, thanks so much for sharing Krista! Though I must comment....no sign of anything Canucks related anywhere.... ;-)

That's a great video! I love Vancouver - though we only make it into the city maybe once per year.

Well, Paris has the name, but Vancouver really has got it for me! Thanks for sharing, what a beautiful spot to live!

Barb said...

A beautiful city, Krista. This time of year I feel particularily envious...are your crocuses blooming? Or are they already finished?

Very pretty! Wish it wasn't such a long drive...I'd love to take a couple weeks to go through Calgary, Banff and then out to the coast. Looking for bigger trips as my boys get bigger!

It's a gorgeous place to live indeed! Fortunately, at the end of your trip to Paris, you'll have an amazing city to come home to! And, yes, Barb, our crocuses and snowdrops are blooming and I've even seen cherry blossoms!

Love Vancouver and I have already submitted my weather request for June when I'll be visiting. You know, sunny skies and no rain. Yeah, right!

What a lovely video postcard! Even better than I remember my last visit.

We will be in Vancouver on March 30 for my daughters 'called to the bar' ceremony!! Seeing that video made me homesick!! Can't wait...5 months has been too long for this Snowbird!!
Take care and thanks for sharing!

I have visited, twice in fact & I loved it! Reall loved Granville Island, I hope that's the right name! It's been a while

happysewlucky said...

Yup. We moved here as a stepping stone to San Fancisco 17 years ago. That's one big, and very awesome, stepping stone.

Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities of the world. Glad to call it home.

Mette said...

I would love to, Krista. Maybe some day......, but you could come here too!

Just got my AAA magazine and there's an article about Vancouver. Don't have a holiday planned this year and I'm getting a new car this Spring. So, I've been thinking of coming up to have a little holiday! I live in Portland Oregon so it wouldn't be too far of a trip ~ very doable!
Thanks for the cute video ~ love it!

I have always wanted to travel to Vancouver. Seems like such a lovely place. Another Canadian travel wish is to go to Calgary. I've always been intrigued by the Calgary Stampede.
