Vancouver West End-36

English bay beach <3

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).



West End


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.
