If you remember last year I did the Tourism challenge with my Mom and 2 of her friends [click] Well this year, I finally got to have my own passport and i kind of promised my boyfriend to take him with me. XD Luckily we both got Tuesday off.
My boyfriend picked me up at around 12 noon, He couldn't get up any earlier as he finished work at 1:30am the previous day :/ . So anyhoo we drove all the way to Amato Gelato Cafe... to park LOL. Science World was just a few minute walk away and its also part of the Challenge so we decided to go there first.
I have more pictures both from my phone and my camera but I dont want to drown you in pictures as the tour doesn't end in here. so after answering "Whos the current owner of the Capilano Suspension bridge" and "Who is the famous artist featured in the Forest exhibit" with Nancy Stibbard and Emily Carr, we went back to the car and headed further North to Grouse Mountain.
Remember my previous trip to Grouse Mountain during fall of year 2010 [click] . It was weird how everyone in the gondola lift was in their ski and snowboarding outfits whilst Jewon was wearing a sleeveless jacket and shorts and Im wearing a 4" heels hahaha. We just went up to get the stamp and ate at the restaurant since we couldn't really walk around in the snow with our outfits.
|see the snow? XD and LOL at my face :P|
I only have the 50mm lens so its pretty tough to take pictures sometimes so I tend to use my phone alternately~~
|The view from the restaurant~|
After the meal we rode the Gondola down the mountain and went back to Downtown, Vancouver and unfortunately we met traffic on the way back. Jewon wanted to get a new phone so we went to Rogers (his phone provider) I think we waited for almost an hour because all the sales people were busy talking to customers that are so indecisive XD. He was originally planning to get an iphone but he settled with that huuuuggee Samsung phone (i dont know the model, didnt bother since it isnt mine anyway haha)
Anyhoo we then went to the Art Gallery for another stamp. No pictures were allowed but even if you could take pictures I doubt that I would. Dont get me wrong.. I love Art! (theres a point in my life when my major was Fine Arts) but seriously I was disappointed with this gallery. I like Paintings and going to Galleries but with this one... lets just say that nothing really caught my attention.
Since we didnt had enough time, thanks to that long wait at the phone store.. we had to cancel the Vancouver Lookout and just went to Fairmont Hotel Vancouver for the next stamp.
It was a fun day.. Ive always wanted to go on a date this way.. like on a roadtrip kind of thing XD So on the next trip we plan on going to the Greater Vancouver Zoo which is about an hour or 2 away from where I live :P ho ho or maybe were gonna take the Whistler day tour~ *finger crossed*
