I finished the story of the trip in British Columbia by the best, what I & rsquo; I preferred to do in Vancouver : a bike ride from Canada Place to English Bay encircling Stanley Park. It n & rsquo; there is not one person that & rsquo; we met in Vancouver who has not advised us to take a day to do that, then was dark.

We rented bikes at Cycle City Tours and Bike Rental, they are close to English Bay where it was good to finish the ride in late afternoon near the beach.

And yes, I don & rsquo;'m not done with this great trip in BC, I still have some pictures of Vancouver. Today I planned a little tour of the West End neighborhoods & Downtown, and tomorrow a little tour of Stanley Park to finish.

We don & rsquo; & rsquo have done that; a small part of the city in the end as we had barely there 3 days, I stitched this beautiful map of Vancouver neighborhoods Ork Posters to show you ;)

Go on & rsquo; to see the picture of the visited city

Voilà, it's not heavy on this great city, mais en 3 days c & rsquo; is a small challenge for the win and we spent the first day to follow two guides.

D & rsquo; first with Jenn Tours by Locals which was lovely and that has s & rsquo; adapt as a leader by making us in a flash a little tour corners likely to please us. As a general rule I hate this stuff, but Canadian are so cool I don & rsquo; have not refused when offered to make this small city tour with an insider.

And then followed with a foodie tour where we made a small passage in famous places in the city just to get in the mouth, even later during the stay to remake one of these addresses delicious ^^

It gave us a first quick overview of those parts of the city and c & rsquo; was neat, we could spend the 2 other days wheel libreavec a program that & rsquo; s it & rsquo; is concocted same.

These are the neighborhoods visited, the beautiful pictures that go with and Qype (if you know the city well and want to add n & rsquo; please in the comments).

C & rsquo; is the neighborhood where we lived, and around which is not bad went to eat, to walk on the first day in zombie mode with the time difference and where we made a lot of our foodie round.

We continue our sightseeing in the region now with the City of Vancouver where we spent a few days. First on the edge of the water with the Kitsilano neighborhood and Granville Island.

We had talked to me a lot of Kitsilano neighborhood, with its wooden houses, the long walk along the beach, the atmosphere to cool… This is one of the first places we wanted to go and we did not regret.

We did not do much, fair rides, some shopping (it's stupid, but wherever I go in the world I can not resist a Urban Outfitters…). Mais c’était cool, a quiet day.

First breakfast delicious Beaucoup Bakery, there met the creator of the shop, Jackie who gave us his best food addresses in Vancouver. I tested his knowledge of Parisian restaurants, she advised me a few of which I never knew existed. We had fallen on a pro, and his address book, a mine… We did not eat in the restaurants recommended by it thereafter :D

Then, stroll shopping, there is plenty to do on the 4th street and small surrounding streets. I recommend a stop at Whole Foods to buy you lunch, and shoo whisked away to the beach enjoying the scenery : la mer, Mountain. Then do around the park up towards Granville Island.

Sur Granville Island, do not miss the market, and all her adorable little shops found there, If the walk gave you a little hungry, make a snack on site, there are a thousand things to taste. Initially I was not sure we would go to walk, not we almost do it, Fortunately we had a change of !


Then finish the day on the beach for the sunset, then in one of the great restaurants in the area, we lift up dinner at Granville Loop Park Farmer’s apprentice (on Jackie tips). It was unforgettable, we ate incredibly well while being served by the double of Ryan Gosling, youhou !
