Pacific Northwest Tour: Vancouver BC

Pacific Northwest Tour: Vancouver BC

Despite the fact that I’ve had family here since the late 1960’s I’ve never visited this wonderful city until now. My work tends to mean that I head east when I travel with work.  After several hours of travelling and watching movies I found myself flying in over the Canadian Rockies as the sun was setting, providing a stunning entrance into Vancouver.

As a budding birder I was delighted to see bald eagles at Squamish, fishing for salmon, which was a real treat. Set against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, fringed with mile upon mile of fir trees, this is truly a stunning part of the world and it was great to see it under a bright blue, winter sky. 

Catching up with family after so many years was wonderful. I hadn’t seen cousin Gabe for 45 years! We made the most of our time together and enjoyed the rather wobbly Capilano Suspension Bridge leading the way to a whole forest of Christmas trees lit up … well like Christmas trees!

I managed to fit in a meeting whilst I was here in Vancouver of course and it meant that I had the opportunity to meet with the lovely Carmen from Lifestyle Market again. 

Working together means that we will soon be getting a refreshed Vancouver design and product range into the airport and hopefully beyond and into the city.  And here it is ...
