Last month, Kurt and I took a quick weekend trip to Vancouver, British Columbia! During our time in the Pacific Northwest we enjoyed breath-taking scenery, ate some delicious meals, and enjoyed a quick respite from the heat - yes, even at this time of year! - in Florida. It was a wonderful weekend of unplugging from our normal day-to-day lives.
We took this quick trip because Kurt had a professional conference in Vancouver, and I had some vacation time to take advantage of. Because he had various responsibilities and sessions to attend each day, we left a lot of room for flexibility in our trip. Knowing this approach worked well for us during our longer honeymoon trip to Colorado earlier this year, it was nice to see it work again for a quick weekend trip as well! During our quick weekend we were able to participate in a couple of local activities while also having time to relax each day.
One of the things I enjoyed most about the trip was the time I had to explore the city on my own. Kurt had sessions on the Friday of our weekend, which meant I was able to walk around the city and spend time alone. I spent a few hours in a branch of the public library, went to a Pure Barre class, and was able to meet Kurt for lunch in between!
Something else that Kurt and I were able to enjoy together during this quick trip was the Vancouver Granville Island Public Market Foodie Tour. This two-hour tour included a variety of tastings of local food items, and was a great way to learn more about the Vancouver Public Market and surrounding area. Plus, it was a delicious way to start our Saturday!
While it was just a quick weekend in Vancouver, Kurt and I are definitely looking forward to an opportunity to visit again. We enjoyed the city so much! Here's a little video I made highlighting some of what we did and saw during our trip. And below that, some of the favorite photos we took. Enjoy!
