Banff: Summer Arts Festival

Every year, The Banff Centre invites professional artists from across Canada and around the world, in order to create the Banff Summer Arts Festival. There is a lot of creative energy you can experience when listening to Jazz music, watching plays or admiring contemporary literature. Head towards Banff if you are in for an arts experience in the brisk mountain air of Banff National Park!

Vancouver
Depending on the weather, I can definitely recommend one thing:
– Rent a bike or a car and drive to West Vancouver, all the way up Cypress Mountain until you arrive at the Highview Lookout Point.

It is a very popular viewing area and can be very busy at times. But when I have been there last weekend there was almost nobody.

You have a spectacular view over Vancouver with the sunset in the back. Simply G-E-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!!

Cheers,

Intro To Granville Island

Granville Island - Public Market

If you’re new to Canada, specifically Vancouver, you’re probably looking for a place of attraction and representative of the Canadian culture.

One of the place you should stop by is Granville Island.  It is a place located in the middle of an island.  In it, you will meander through many chic shops filled with culture – souvenirs unique to Canada, some specially made by artists.

Granville Island has an eclectic collection of art, artisan beverages, international food, and exciting entertainment.  There will always be a musician inside the Public Market belting out a tune.

Alot of the food are from farmer’s markets.  Therefore, the fruit and baked goods are fresh, locally grown, and organic.

I will blog further information on Granville Island later on.

Stay tuned for attractions, cruises, and fresh market place foods and flowers!!
