Here are a few of the better quality photos that I took while in Canada. I had a great time, it was nice to finally leave the country and to go somewhere as beautiful as Vancouver.
It turns out I really don't like flying but it was definitely worth it. I flew with Thomas Cook, it wasn't exactly comfortable but as I've had no other flying experience I can't really judge, the nerves definitely didn't help.
I stayed with friends in Surrey which seemed a nicer place than they claimed it to be. Downtown Vancouver was stunning and we saw Distant Worlds at the Orpheum Theatre.
We also went to Granville Island Brewery and tried a lot of their beers, they had a really great Maple Ale which I need to somehow get imported here.
We also went to the top of Grouse Mountain and The Eye of the Wind and the view was amazing.
The best bit for me though was taking a cruise from Vancouver Harbour around Stanley Park and watching the Celebration of Light from English Bay.
