Impression about Canada, I mean Vancouver!


I have to say that Vancouver is an interesting city with wonderful landscape all around. The city looks really modern & people are pretty friendly! It often happen that they stop to ask if you need help when they see you looking at a map!

  • Transportation: Metro – or Skytrain as they call it here – is absolutely clean & I guess brand new! Every single bus driver will say hello to you & would be more than welcome to answer your question if you search your way – good luck to find that in Paris! Funny thing to ask the bus to stop, you need to pull a cable which run all around the bus :) You can easily travel by buing a Faresaver Tickets booklet (10 adult 1 zone tickets) for 19$ instead of paying 2,50$ one way, valid for 1:30 hour.
  • Finding a flat: you can of course have a look in the newspaper however, they also have an interesting way to do it: as for hotel or guesthouse, they put a sign in front of the building telling you that a room or flat is free. You just need to call the agency to take an appointment…

1 week was good to get to know the city a bit, however I’ll need to come back to discover Victoria Island which seems to be a beautiful place to visit for a long weekend… Next time for sure! :)
