hey they’re all you grrr travelers welcome back! today I’m going to share with you some of the best things to do when you’re in Vancouver! I’m gonna get the day pass today. Here is my unlimited pass. Here we are in Vancouver. Nice city. Pretty clean too want to know what this building is it’s a gorgeous building. I will definitely have to come back to this 00:00:31,130 –> 00:00:33,580 [Applause] christmas is coming to Vancouver this is just scratching the tip of the iceberg! And there’s a best buy. I’ve seen that store before. Is that a daiso? I think they just found a detour . This looks like a huge Starbucks. We’re in downtown Vancouver right now walking along Granville Street We have orpheum, vogue and right across the street you have venue Walk down here you’ll notice there’s Hall of fame walk I’m taking it this is the musical parts of Vancouver I didn’t know was a hostel. Not sure I like that Originally when I looked online it looked more like a hotel slash hostel. the older I get the more I try to avoid like party environments it’s actually been surprisingly good I mean initially the initial shock was like a shock. but then the people here turned out to friendly, there’s free breakfast. the security or the luggage storage it’s like super safe to have separate place for it and there’s a person watching all the luggage so it’s just it’s been amazing It’s been a really great stay here. Vancouver is just a very visually compelling city to walk around iin. Look at all those lights this feels like New York feels like Chicago feels like San Francisco. all these architectural forms just brings this color and this dynamic… brings the city to light. If you look down the street you can see the edges of the building lines and they create like interesting patterns the buildings here are so diverse. and clearly one that’s pet friendly so I took bus number 52 to False Creek South here and now we’re going to go there. on Granville Island you’ll find a lot of shops markets but sell a lot of handmade local goods. smack dab in the center of all these stores you’ll find the Granville Island public market. so this marketplace is kind of like a smattering of everything it’s got products or produce to fill your kitchen with. gourmet items as just fun things to eat with a little bit of curiosity and imagination some of these things are very interesting. as well as crafts Pot pies And then banana cream pies I can tell that this is gonna get a workout. thank you I’ve picked up some sweet baked goods from Stewart’s .there we go got the maple cheesecake. oh that doesn’t rich right? and it’s exactly all that I imagined and more. oh my god

you can definitely taste a cheesecake and they’ve got the maple in it. I can feel my thighs growing right now. this is so good. day #2 my hostel just had like a really good breakfast. yesterday we got around Vancouver using the unlimited day pass, but it’s also cold and a little rainy and I know that I’d want some information about the city and the city along the way. so today I decided to take a date tour with LandSea tours we’re at the stanley park totem poles the totem poles are designed or created by the First Nations people, which are an indigenous tribe of Canada. it says that it takes roughly around three hours to translate the stories of an entire pole a wolf, lightning snake… these were constructed because the First Nation people did not have like a written language at the time, so they used art work to tell their story. I definitely have to come back to explore the park more and to see this view. so back on the bus. When the tide is at its lowest you can actually walk entirely around that rock and that she’s about five six feet off the ground there When the tides is at its highest is kind of lapping around to her flippers there so you can see we are getting towards the higher tides mark this is Lions Gate Bridge I’m headed out to prospect point where I heard that I can… holy moly! oh my god. here at prospect point you’ll be Able to find an amazing mind-blowing view of Vancouver and Lions Gate Bridge. Check that out oh yeah that’s what I’m talking about We’re at Granville public market during the day and it’s a completely different feeling from the night Canada is known for its seafood and salmon so one thing to try is it’s smoked salmon sticks so these are normal smoked salmon sticks, these have the maple in them and these are candied ones. another you have to try to see here is a bag of candied salmon they even have maple flavored ones too but the are smoked salmon I’m excited but kinda scared here too wonderfully smoke flavor tastes like a little bit of sugar in it but see this is like soft very tender salmon jerky they like the bomb glad I got a bag of this. that salmon is really good although I don’t imagine my breath would be smelling too good okay back on the bus. are you afraid of heights? because if you are then maybe this next spot will not be for you. we’re at the Vancouver lookout. A 360-degree walking view of the entire city maybe you just shouldn’t look down Downtown Eastside there you go Dominion building right over there. Mount Baker.. must be all the way down there Lions Gate Bridge we were just there we’re at Capilano bridge at a very special time. right now they have a lot of canyon lights. where it is 230 feet high. it’s a long way down it’s definitely bouncy but all the people on here I feel like my legs are still bouncing. okay let’s go this way to

the treetops adventure. I can’t believe someone went up and strung all these lights. It’s a little different from stringing up house lights during Christmas. the treetops adventure pretty much walking along shorter suspension bridges. go from tree to tree… right there. To tree… now we’re at the cliff walk. these are reminding me of those crazy bridges that you see in photos … of like, I think it’s China. we’re hugging along the side of a cliff Past the point of no return… but yeah people are still roaming around it I was assuming it’s because there’s restaurants to play around here let’s see better can I say these have daiso right there. they definitely see a lot more Asian stores , so Tony moly or Nature Republic Hoping the food court is open today. okay so here I am in Aberdeen Centre food court filled with different types of Asian food varieties We’re not at a loss for stuff to eat here first I have to stop off in 7-eleven today my plan is to go to Lynn Canyon to do a little hiking, come back visit Gastown as well as meet up with my good friend Henry for some tacos. I’m gonna go off and grab an unlimited day pass so I can get around as well as use the Seabus which I think will be fun [Applause] sky trains, buses and sea bus.. right now I’m following through on some of your recommendations when I did my shout-out on Instagram and Facebook. You recommended lynn canyon as a backup for Capilano Suspension Bridge which can be a little pricey for travelers. this is huge Lonsdale quay. Lynn Valley so we have an adventure ahead of us Swear appropriate Footwear, okay. versus that. don’t do that wear bright colors well maybe not that. Stay in the marked trails. stick together and let someone know where you’re going and when you plan to be back . Okay, two out of five maybe okay there are more warnings. this One in particular… so Lyn canyon bridge is nowhere near as long Capilano suspension bridge. But it is free and when you go into the wilderness you’re going into the wilderness. you can do hikes, there are waterfalls, there swimming holes apparently Wow imagine being a salmon and swimming up that wish I had a whole day to explore this and do hike these are Lichen and when you see them growing in trees, it kind of signals that the area here is that’s really clean air. this is like a fairy tale grass bed. Wow It’s what you see in fairy tales breathe deep, breathe deep. Wow this waterfront terminus or waterfront station. you can rent bikes her.e oh there there we are (wifi) connected. this is ideal

that I discovered it here in waterfront station because I’m right, at four o’clock. I’m meeting my friend. Hi Henry is a friend of mine from online. He’s a photographer. I’ve been following you for a while. Same here I follow your videos one thing about this particular Starbucks coffee which is right in front of us. Even though it’s got a nondescript sign,… here let’s say that March 5, 1987 this first making Starbucks that’s opened the doors to I just bought a cookie here.Here we’re standing at the Statue of Gassy Jack is considered the founding father of Gastown. his name is actually Jack Deighton. he had settlements here. you had business this year and so this area is basically an origin place for the city of Vancouver. gastown is full of restaurants, boutique and coffee shops… a it’s the historical part of what we consider the city of Vancouver. there’s some nice places to eat here, very innovative places to eat here .I think I want to try the minced tart? So Henny was just saying that this particular bar here 131 water …you can go ahead and have a drink and play games for games you can cover gastown from one end to the other within 15-20 minutes. there is the steam clock here . this steam clock goes off every quarter of an hour. that was cool where’s that tune from? dun dun duh. oh my god can’t you just fall in love with the city at night? this is one side of canada place where a cruise ship can dock uh-huh. so this is Canada place also known as the vancouver convention center east. so a gunshot went off .. a huge one. every night at nine o’clock there is a gun that sets off an explosion every night at 9 o’clock yep Stanley Park . I thought it it’s like a cannon. yeah but it’s not a real canon oh look look at the moon. look at that do you see that low crest right there is it the moon? no that’s not is that so what your point of that is Grass Valley uh-huh 3,900 feet which we call a local hill so it’s not very tall here in Vancouver. but the lights are from the ski hill reflected on the clouds. oh that’s a ski hill – h so it’s clearly open for skiing. It looks really cold. There’s two ski hills… three three! is that a third one right there, the little dot that’s cypress grouse mountain. Seymour, cypress ah ski complex there the head is grouse mountain and right below them you have a floating Chevron station. So you have Seymour, Grouse and Cypress. you will find a Tim Horton’s or Timmy’s everywhere it’s a very popular coffee and donut shop it’s what Dunkin Donuts is for Americans except for it’s even more popular with Vancouverites that was about coffee double cream double sugar you have double double tea double double tea. but Henry was showing me this— $10 bills. What’s interesting about this common domination that is a vertical or portrait format all the other bill was commonly used in horizontal or landscape the other thing which is really cool with that because it’s a common denomination everybody to have $10 bill will look at this woman not just a woman but a woman of color. So cheers to you Canada for being progressive . it’s about time. And eco friendly, and human rights oriented… and… Japadog seems to be a thing of Vancouver this is the first most popular… even this is going to be with bonito flakes and cabbage. I want to get this one right here . I want the number two Okonomi. yeah there is no Japadog in Japan. and this is a vegetarian one. YUM willing it up I like pocket yes suppose it’s Monday oh it’s Japanese

okonomi Japanese mayonaise okonomi is like influence from Japan. it is like a pancake, a vegetable pancake, Wow The okonomi sauce and the mayonnaise Japanese mayonnaise makes a huge difference. I can taste the bonito flakes a little is a unique flavor with the bonito flakes against the hotdog itself.
