van city



Earlier this month Liam and I spent a wonderful long weekend visiting friends and seeing Kindness in Vancouver, which is by far my favorite city in Canada. The weather was gorgeous (especially for the beginning of March) and we walked everywhere from our downtown Airbnb, stopping often to take pictures of the blossoming trees in my case. Vancouver's natural beauty is impossible not to appreciate as it's surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and Rocky Mountains, which never fail to move me. There are also so many amazing restaurants, bakeries, and coffee shops in Van that one is truly spoiled for choice; we managed to sample sushi, noodles, burgers, macarons, bagels, and more in only a few days, and all of it was seriously delicious. Our petite getaway was a much welcome change of pace from school/work, especially before the final stretch to graduation in May!

Just stumbled across your blog, and I love these photos! My friends and I have been thinking of planning a road trip to Canada for the summer, and I think this has me longing for it even more. What a magical-sounding city.

ugh I've been vicariously living through these photos- Vancouver looks beautiful! Those macarons made me stop for a full minute- those colors are so soft and dreamy. And how great is airbnb?! I tried it for the first time two weeks ago and am completely sold- it's so fun getting to actually live inside an apartment. It was hard not to pretend like I actually lived in the neighborhood as I stepped out and locked the door, haha! That's great you guys had good weather, too- I've been hearing it's warming up a lot over there. Sounds like such a great visit :)
