We arrived in downtown Vancouver just after sunset and was surprised with the beautiful view from our hotel room, considering our first hotel choice was sold out for the night that we were there, found the hotel in 10 minutes then booked it. It was cold indeed but we were excited to look around and see the beautiful city.
Juggling with my coat, scarf, gloves, purse and camera, I forgot to bring a map of the city but found our way to the Vancouver Convention Center Harbor, Granville Street and back on Robson Street to our hotel. Few hours later, I got to see one of my friends after more than 10 years. She is now a professional photographer, wife and a mommy. Traveling gives me the thrill of seeing new places and experiencing new things, as well as reconnecting with people who had been a part of my life.
