Place 72 – Day 521: Vancouver, BC – First Apartment Viewings

We woke up at a really good time, got ourselves showered and had a bit of breakfast.

Right after that, we got right into doing the final clean and tidy, which took us a couple of hours.

We felt the apartment looked incredible once we were done, and the realtor felt the same, which was great!

Curtis welcomed the realtor and showed her to the storage and parking, and then we left and let her do her thing.

We went first to get a coffee/hot chocolate from a place down in Gastown.

The hot chocolate was part of the festival again and was a malt-style hot chocolate. It was nice, but not exactly what Kim was expecting. Curtis got an Americano from there too which was fantastic.

We left here and walked for a bit towards Curtis’ work.

We had a gift card from his work building for the food court next door, so we went there to get some lunch. Unfortunately, the card didn’t work, but we still got the food and went to find a place to eat it.

Whilst we were finding a place, we noticed that Jack Poole Plaza was slightly different with a lot of new random signs around etc.

It turns out, Ryan Reynolds is filming there and making it into another location!

We ate our lunch and then continued with our walk. It’s certainly got colder now and it’s rumoured that it will snow tonight, but we shall see!

We walked for a couple of hours what was really nice (but cold) and then we headed back home to meet the realtor and get our keys back.

We got back in and just relaxed for ages! We even had a nice nap.

For dinner, we had some frozen chili we had made before, so we made that into quesadillas!

We watched a comedy show whilst we ate that and watched a few other things for the evening.

Whilst all the walking was fun today, we do play to relax tomorrow!

Place 72 – Day 50: Vancouver, BC – Dragon Boat Festival 🐉

Bagels

We woke up and had a nice relaxed morning.

We had cinnamon raisin bagels for breakfast, covered in butter, which were delicious.

We relaxed and then headed out to the shops.

Brief Shop

We had a few more things to get, mostly a bread knife which we noticed we needed this morning!

We got some items and then came home.

Dragon Boat Festival

There is the Dragon Boat Festival happening right by our apartment this weekend, so we thought we would check it out.We went to watch a race first, which we did from a small island near where we live.

We walked further down and watched the next race and then went towards all of the festivities which were happening by the science centre.

These festivities were not that interesting, but there was a lot of free stuff, including free mcdonalds coffee, but when we got in the queue they ran out of milk, so we didn’t get one.

We walked around some more and checked out what all the fuss was about but then we wanted a coffee so found a nearby bakery to grab one from.

We got our coffee and came home, where we just relaxed, watched some TV and ate quesadillas for dinner, which Kim made!
