Vancouver - Canada

What an incredible place Canada is! Even though i did not explore to much of the large country, i fell in love with the place straight away. I flew from Hawaii to Vancouver on a night time flight. I was lucky enough that the tour i had booked for the day i arrived offered to pick me up from the airport (how nice is that). Had a tour of the city and learnt alot of interesting things about the Vancouver.

I went on a bike ride around Stanley Park and took this snap of Lions Gate Bridge (Interesting fact, built in 1938 to provide access to the north shore of the city, by the Guinness family who own Guinness the beer. They paid $6mil for the construction of the bridge. After construction they installed toll booths on the bridge to collect there money back. By 1952, they had made there $6mil back, and then in 1955, sold the bridge to the government for $6mil)


Vistied the Bloedel Floral Conservatory which had an array of flora and different birds from around the world


Had a great day at Capilano Suspension Bridge, it has a high suspension bridge over a river VERY HIGH up, a bridge that goes out from the rock face of a cliff which is in the photo and lots of other high walks up in the tree tops and some nice trail below


Very interested fact i would of never known


A photo i took of Cleveland Dam which was built in 1954
