Vancouver - what you got to offer?

Tuesday, 27 May 2008 | Views [359]

So today was one of those days where I'mnot sure either Becky or I really knew what we wanted to do. We went to the Art gallery (cos we happended to be passing) which turned out to be an expensive mistake as they only had two exhibitions on, one was ... Read more >

Viva Vancouver

Monday, 26 May 2008 | Views [326]

Lots of swear words

Friday, 23 May 2008 | Views [452]

Thursday, 22 May 2008 | Views [468]

So picked up our hire car this morning.  Yet more hints of deliverance and people who aren't quite all there.  The woman (who eventually turned up at the hire desk once we called her home number!) took forever.... to sort out the car and told us several ... Read more >

Epic breakfast

Wednesday, 21 May 2008 | Views [370]

So, with some trepidation, we presented ourselves at the breakfast table at 8am and it was epic.  We started with fruitsalad with a sort of muesli, followed by the most solid banana muffin I think I've ever had (luckily small, contrary to Canadian and ... Read more >

George to Rupert

Tuesday, 13 May 2008 | Views [523] | Comments [1]

More pancakes for breakfast, this could become a habit.... Much much colder today and windy too so we wrapped up warm before heading off to Lake Minnewanka to walk the trail up there. The lake was ENORMOUS and nearly the whole thing is still frozen ... Read more >
