Place 72 – day 139: Vancouver, BC – Tiny Patisserie

Morning Workout

We were up around 09:00 and Kim decided she wanted to go and do some exercise, so headed down to the studio for 10:00.

Whilst she was there, Curtis had some breakfast, a coffee and played some games.

A Tiny Patisserie

When Kim got back, we were still hungry for some food, so we walked for about 20 minutes to get to a patisserie which had great ratings.

The patisserie was called L’atelier Patisserie and it was beautiful! Just 4 tables in total (two outside and two inside) and it was weirdly in an industrial estate.

It was clearly a busy place as it had run out of several items by the time we got there, but there was still enough for us to have.

We were very excited to have a croissant, and they didn’t disappoint!

Kim had a double chocolate croissant a Curtis had a standard, plain, one.

The croissants were incredible! flaky, yet buttery!

The coffees weren’t great, but tasty enough!


L’atelier Patisserie | Vancouver, BC

Our rating:- 8.25/10


We left here and walked home, via a shop to get a couple of things.

Hockey

When we got home, we watched a couple of things together and then Curtis watched hockey whilst Kim watched Queer Eye.

Galaxy Buds

Curtis bought Kim Galaxy Buds for her birthday but gave them to her today as they as useful to have for training and exercise!

Suits & Peaky Blinders

We tried some of the new whisky we have and are very much in favour!

We watched Suits and Peaky Blinders whilst we drank this.

Place 70 – Day 1: Victoria,BC 🇨🇦 – Crazy Time Travel

Just before the flight, whilst waiting, we found a whisky tasting station in duty free, so we thought why not!

We got a few shots of whisky to try, mostly expensive whisky, one of which tasted like bacon which we do not recommend.

We eventually got on the flight, which was actually a pretty good and easy flight, though we didn’t sleep we much as we wanted, or really at all!

We watched the film Night School and Kim watched a couple of films whilst Curtis tried to sleep.

We had 2 meals whilst on board. Curtis had chicken tagine with couscous and Kim had pasta bolognese.

We then had breakfast. Curtis had the safe option of museli and Kim had the scrambled eggs which were not good at all.

Once we landed in Vancouver, we had to wait a while whilst other planes got out of the way and then we were able to exit.

We got through customs and immigration pretty quickly, collected our bags and then had to figure out what to do next.

We found the right bus but had to buy a ticket, so we went inside the terminal to get them and then back out onto the bus.

We got the bus to the ferry port and once we got there we changed buses to get into the ferry and across the other side.

We got onto the ferry and grabbed a much deserved cappucino each and relaxed as we sailed across the water.

Once we arrived, we got back on the bus and that took us to Victoria!

Along the way, we saw a car crash happen which is not good!

We got to the Victoria bus station and figured out how we get to where we are staying, which we luckily did.

We are staying with Kim’s great aunty Linda, who we stayed with here on a holiday before. We haven’t been here in winter so we saw excited to see what is on offer!

We had a delicious chicken dinner and chatted with Linda for a while before hopping in the shower after our long journey.

We got into bed which was lovely and comfy and got a couple of outstanding admin tasks completed before heading to bed.

We don’t have much planned just yet, other than getting some sleep!

This time last year!
