Now that’s a mouthful of title if ever there was one!

Tomorrow, the 1st of July, is Canada Day (well it’s probably already ‘today” in some countries) and it’s not just your average Canada Day – it’s the 150th anniversary of Canada existing as a Confederation (which from what I recall is essentially when all the different provinces in Canada coming together to form Canada as the country we know it today).

We recently visited Vancouver in Canada (one of my absolute favourite cities – and a place I could very happily move to live in). We stayed at the amazing Shangri La Hotel, downtown and had a brilliant week exploring Canada!

I very quickly remembered why I want to move to Vancouver (even if just for a couple of months) as I fell in love with the city all over again.

We got to see and do so much more on this trip and I will have the full and complete blog posts will all the details up very soon!

Firstly got to love your title 😂- definitely wins the award for the best title ever! Your photos are stunning – what an incredible week in Canada! I’ve only visited Vancouver and the rockies once but loved every minute of it. My parents lived in Vancouver for a few years before I was born…im secretly gutted I wasn’t born as a Canadian haha! Did you guys see any bears while you were there? Xxx

Haha Thanks so much!

O-M-Gosh… seriously, we didn’t want to leave – it was so much fun! It’s been our dream to live in Vancouver – it’s such a gorgeous are of Canada. Haha, I’d feel the same too (about being born in Canada) Haha! xxx

We did see a few, though, we were terrified when we hiked… both of us were ready to run away in an instant. Ha! 🐻

So FYI to your readers, Vancouver does not have grizzlies and other wild life downtown.. ok maybe on Granville St on a Sat. night… and coyotes, skunks and racoons… never mind. But definitely no bears. Ok, maybe during the Pride Parade. Uh, this comment is out of control so I’ll just say thanks for all the great photos of my home. :}

Oh yeah, there are definitely no bears in Vancouver itself. Can you imagine the carnage! Yikes.

Good God these photos are stunning! I especially love the one of Yaya in the water with his shades on lol So cute! I’ve never been to Vancouver, but I really hope to one day. The company I work for has a facility there, so maybe I’ll get to travel there for work or something 🙂
