So I’m here finally after all that travelling in Asia – And it’s strange. going from the structured chaos of BKK, to the calm, organised – even slightly sanitised – big city of western Canada. It’s going to take a bit of getting used to. But really it’s a nice place, sitting out on a coastline of peninsulas and looking over to Vancouver island.
The only real issue I’ve got is the rain. It rains all the time. And when I say all the time, I mean everyday, and most of the day. And it doesn’t rain hard – just long miserable slow, soaking rain. You cant hide from it, it gets round corners. And where’s all the snow? I was told it snows all the time in Canada, and I look on the TV and it’s all at home. Nobody mentioned that Vancouver is in the warmest part of Canada. Somebody told me that they give flights to homeless people to get to Vancouver because they wont die of exposure here – It makes sense, but i’m not sure it really true.
Anyway, apart from the rain it’s awesome – Bring on the snow…or the summer. Once it stops pissing it down I’ll take a few photos
