Vancouver, BC

Place 72 – Day 871: Vancouver, BC – We’ve Moved!

Wake Up

We woke up at 07:45 and got ourselves and the boxes ready for the move!

We didn’t have any breakfast as we weren’t hungry, but we drank some water and a redbull and we were ready.

The Move

The movers actually arrived at 08:45 instead of 09:00, so that was good for us! They were able to get setup before the elevator could be locked.

Luckily, we had done a lot for them and it was nice and straight forward for them.

Whilst they were moving our stuff, we cleaned the old apartment and got that all at a good level.

They finished packing up into the truck and we headed over to the new apartment and got the movers a coffee just before the started unloading at the other end.

The unloading was even quicker and we were done by 11:10, leaving us more than enough time to finish cleaning the old place and then bringing over a few remaining items.

The only hiccup on the day was coffee we had in the fridge spilling all over Kim and a few of our cold items as it was in a bag with other items. Other than that, flawless.

Lunch & The ‘unpacking’

We got hungry, so we took a lunch break and got a sandwich from JJ Bean, where Curtis also bought some coffee beans to tide him over for a bit and due to buying beans, he got a free coffee!

We headed back to the new apartment and ate our lunch whilst relaxing, then got unpacking.

Curtis got some of the kitchenware unpacked and then setup his office! He is pretty excited to have an office, which is awesome. He was then able to watch hockey, though using phone data, whilst waiting for the internet technician to arrive and setup our new internet service.

Internet Setup & Pizza

The technician arrived early and we were able to get online at a good time!

Once we got online, we got everything setup and connected, then once hockey finished Curtis went to collect a pizza for us to eat and Kim got some beers to celebrate the move.

We ate pizza, relaxed on our large sofa and unpacked as much as we could be bothered to do.

Tonight we get to sleep in what Kim has coined ‘the dungeon bedroom’ as it has no windows and should be perfectly dark, just how Kim likes it.

Back to work tomorrow, but we’re both able to work for separate rooms!

We’ll have photos/videos soon of the apartment, once we get it all setup and ready.


This Time Last Year!
