3.5 Days and a spontaneous adventure in Vancouver. I flew with Flair Airlines which to be honest I was skeptical about as they are a cheaper airline and have had some bad reviews.

The Good: Cheaper Flights
The Bad: Delayed Flights
The Ugly: Seems to be only one flight a day so if you miss it that is your only chance.

I didn’t mind the no tv’s, wifi or plug-ins on the plane, it made me accomplish a lot on the flight (cleaned out my hard-drive until my computer died, deleted contacts and photos in my albums on my phone, and then finished a book I was reading), which typically I would spend the time just watching movies.

    {Friday} Once I arrived off my delayed flight I checked out Lift for food and views, and then took a stroll around Coal Harbour Marina. I am shocked that I had never been to this restaurant before. The views alone were worth it!

      After dinner we hit up Reflections: The Garden Terrace for a glass of wine. I highly recommend this place for a pre dinner cocktail or an after dinner nightcap. It’s a stunning scene, but very pricey for an all night event. 

   {Saturday} The next day I went for lattes with my web developer/best friend at Baggio Gelateria to chat all things launching this blog!! Hallelujah!. I used to hit this place up for late night ice cream and strolls along the Yaletown Marinaside.

  After coffee I met up with one of my closest friends and her adorable kids and we went to the H2 Rotisserie & Bar in the Westin Bayshore for some delicious smores (if you can’t go camping this is the next best option, and they are just as sticky and delicious). We sat in these cute little lounge areas outside and enjoyed the day, I was so shocked that I hadn’t discovered this place when I lived in Vancouver. That evening I went to dinner at Black and Blue (which in my opinion has one of the best rooftop patios in Vancouver), and had an incredible dinner.

   {Sunday} The next morning I got to visit my home church Coastal Church after church we headed up to Whistler for the night, staying at The Westin Whistler which had a breathtaking view of both the village and the mountains. (This view would be stunning in winter with the snow). After check in we went and walked around the village and ended up having a bite to eat by the fire tables outside of Longhorn Saloon and wandered the village. 

  {Monday} The next day we went to The Scandinavian Spa for a little R&R, which is one of my favourite places to relax. The most relaxed I have ever been has been at this place! The hot + cold pools, relax rooms, the sauna’s, steam rooms and the hammock haven make this place a must do when visiting Whistler. On the drive home we stopped at this little picnic area right before Squamish and had the most stunning view of the sunset and it was the perfect ending to an incredible 4 day trip! 

  The next morning I flew back to Toronto and I am counting down the days till I get to come back again. See you soon Vancouver!!
