Vancouver, British Columbia has been rated the third most liveable city in the world, right behind Vienna, Austria (where my parents are from) and Melbourne, Australia.
If you are visiting Vancouver don’t forget to enjoy the outdoors - we have a variety of beautiful scenic spots which I would like to share with your here.
Everything in blue is a link to more information. Click any photo to enlarge.
Enjoy visiting Vancouver…
