I Heart Vancouver

Tuesday, 1 July 2014 | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

A few days ago I started to think about how lucky I am that my parents decided to immigrate here some four decades ago. Thanks mom and dad! They gave me a life of opportunity that I likely wouldn't not have had back in Croatia.

In preparation for Canada’s birthday, I gave myself the challenge of trying to document a few of the things that I love about my city.  But as I raced around iPhone in hand, I realized that with every photo I took, there were hundreds more I was missing.  How could I ever fully express the beauty and diversity of this place?   Impossible.  So here’s a snapshot of my Vancouver.  #Nofilter except my own. 


Sometimes it rains here

 My neighbourhood haunt and in my mind, some of the best coffee in the city

 View from the Burrard Bridge (I won’t show you a view of the bridge which is undergoing nasty construction and making commuters very frustrated)

 Olympic cauldron and best restaurant view in town. Try the Bandara salad

 Sign of the times. When you come for a visit, do not ask about the bike lanes. JUST. DON’T.

Want to fit in here? Get a cool bike

Cool blue pointy thing

 The locals. Don’t pick a fight with them. They can be nasty.

My morning run. (No, not really.)

 Where I do some of my best work

If you haven’t been here before, I suggest you come visit. It truly is one of the most beautiful cities on earth.

    I think the best part of Vancouver is your in it. Makes the rainy part a little more tolerable.
    Nice pictures. Dogs adorable.

    My favourite part of Vancouver? The road to Whistler, our new food truck culture and the air. Wish I could take it with me when I leave. (notice how I didn’t mention bike lanes?)
