I got home yesterday after having an awesome time in B.C. The weather was cold but the rain held off for most of the time. Canadians were very friendly and treated us well although i think a few people had a few problems understanding our accents!
I loved the variety of foods that were so easily and cheaply available. I enjoyed the clothes shopping. I enjoyed the sightseeing and my trip up to the Harbour Centre lookout. I enjoyed ordering a small coffee and receiving a coffee that is the equivalent size of a New Zealand large. I enjoyed watching the Vancouver Christmas Parade. I enjoyed....everything!
The flight over to Vancouver was half empty with gave me plenty of room to spread out. The flight home though was totally full so space was a premium. I felt like a caged chicken!
My trip from Vancouver to Seattle was great. I mounted the Space needle as well as done heaps of shopping. Seattle is the home of Starbucks so i made the effort to visit as many Starbucks in the city as possible! I was buzzing from all the caffeine!
The temperatures were cold over there in the northern hemisphere. We experienced 2c. I'm glad i took an extra jersey.
Now im back in NZ. The weather has been 25c today and sunny. Such a contrast. I was surprised that the evenings got dark so early in Canada (before 5pm) but there was so much to do to in the dark hours.
I now want to live in Canada!!!!
