Hidden Gems

My time in Vancouver has come to an end. This is the last day in our apartment, and it has been spent mainly cleaning and packing sadly. The year has had many ups and downs, but looking back through my photos I feel we’ve experienced and seen so much, and I definitely don’t regret moving to Canada.
From Sunday I will be back in the UK in my home town of Plymouth. I’ve never been away from home for this long so I’m very excited to get back to comfort and familiarity. For the next four months there will be lots of posts to come from day trips around Devon plus more cooking and baking, and as I’ve been granted my second visa I will be back to Canada in January 2014 to experience another year in a Canadian city.

My last post is about the beautiful buildings and architecture in the city of Vancouver. Although at first glance you will see a forest of glass sky scrapers and concrete apartments blocks, hidden in between are many elegant and ornate historic stone buildings.
