This website used to be all about one of the top cities in all of Canada, beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, which also includes the city’s news, real estate, parks, and Kitsilano Beach. It went from the end of the year 2005, to around October 2013. Anyways, here is some of the information that I have grabbed from Wayback…
Ask any Sutton mortgage or real estate agent what some of the top Canadian destinations are for people in terms of buying real estate and they will always mention Vancouver at the top. In addition to cities like Calgary, Toronto and Montreal, Vancouver is right there at the top with all of them. There are probably more variable mortgage Canada loans being given out in Vancouver than any other city. People want to live in Vancouver which is why so many of them flock to the city.
Vancouver has so much to offer.
The first thing you will notice is the beautiful scenery in Vancouver. It doesn’t matter where you go, be it Deep Cove, Kitsilano, or downtown Granville, you will see something that catches your eye. It would be hard not to!
If you know anyone that has been taking a real estate training program in Vancouver you’ve probably heard them rave about all the mountains, beaches, and parks in and around the Vancouver area. You can spend all day sightseeing and never be bored.
Vancouver is also a very multi-cultural city which means so many different restaurants that cater to different ethnicities. That means you can try cuisines such as Indian food, Chinese food, Thai food, Italian, Bosnian and French, just to name a few. Vancouver is also home to a very inclusive vegan community. So if you find yourself in a current health kick, you will have your choices of places to eat in Vancouver, such as The Naam Restaurant and The Foundation.
Another thing that Vancouver has going for it is its vibrant arts community. Whether you’re an actress, painter, artist, director, musician, producer or dancer, you will find a place to call home in Vancouver. There are just so many different projects going on in and around the arts community in Vancouver. Plays, movies, TV show tapings, art showings and musicals are just a few of the things you’ll find going on in Vancouver.
If you don’t live in Vancouver yet then it might be time to start drawing up some house plans. How could you not want to live in Vancouver after what we mentioned Vancouver has to offer? At the very least you should take a vacation to Vancouver.
Nowadays, the topic of this website remains the same… With a little bit more added material, of course. Click through the posts listed below to know more…
There are places I have wished to settle but visiting Vancouver was previously not in that list until my grandmother got sick and invited me to go and see her. A year ago my grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer and she has been battling with it. I never went to see her until now she had sent for me. I asked my friend Joe and Martin to accompany me and they willingly accepted my offer.
None of us had been to Vancouver but we asked a little bit about the place and got some shady information which would help us once we got there. We were packed and headed to Canada 2 days after I had received my grandmother’s invitation.
Finally at Vancouver
From Los Angles to Vancouver the flight took 2 hours 40 minutes and we were in a new land that we had not set foot before. We were met at Vancouver International Airport by my uncle who drove us to my grandmother’s home at the outskirts. The drive was interesting as the impressive city’s buildings towered above us. The traffic was light something which is not common back at home. After a 30-minute drive we arrived at the residence and we found my grandmother waiting eagerly.
She was not as sickly as I first thought. She told me that her oncologist had told her that the breast tumor was completely eliminated and she would be fully healed after a few months. This was good news and I knew I would enjoy this trip. After this entire trip started on a sad note and now that I had received this good news I would fully enjoy the goodness of the city.
I introduced my friends and we began to unpack to our various rooms. We could not wait for the following day after we had shaken the jetlag to venture deep into the neighborhoods and see the beauty of this place.
The never-ending recreational activities
The following day we woke up early and my cousin whose uncle had driven us from the airport came early in the morning to take us out. After breakfast, we were out into the neighborhoods. The site was scenic everywhere we passed. My cousin promised that this was only the beginning. Our first stop was at Stanley Park where we had breeze and wafted the sweet smell from fresh roses. We played games on the sand, chased each other until we were gasping for breath. By the time we remembered to get back, we were tired and we really missed a cold bath.
We got home and refreshed before enjoying the tasty meal that my grandmother’s house help had prepared. We rested till evening when we decided to go into the town and see how life was during the night. There was glamour in everything we saw. By the time we got back home for sleep we had fun that we could only imagine of back at home. The following day we went for a hike at the Grouse Grind and we loved the wild Vancouver that we had not so far seen. Every day was fun with different things to do and we never kept track of how time went.
A smoothie to remember
One of the days we decided to sample some of the best restaurants. We found one not far from our residence. After going through the menu, we all ordered Aloha chicken with banana berry loaf. It was one of the tastiest meals I had ever tasted. We ate to the last pieces and I wanted more but did not make another order. We made it a habit of coming to this restaurant for the same treat.
I was amazed by the meals weight loss potential since by the time we were going back home I stepped on scale and I had lost an amazing 10 pounds thanks to this excellent smoothie. I asked for the recipe from one of the restaurant’s attendants and took it back home.
The pocket-friendly real estate
By the time we were leaving, I wanted to stay. I knew that this was not an option since schools were reopening soon and I had to get back. But before I left, I had made up my mind that I would come to live here in the future. I asked around for real estate prices and I was amazed that despite the beauty of the city, houses and property rates were lower than back home. This gave me more one more reason to want to come and settle here in the future.
