Weekend Getaway: A Guide to Vancouver

Welcome to our Weekend Getaway series! While it’s our preference to discover a country slowly and thoroughly, realistically time often only allows for a long weekend of exploring. Each week we’ll focus on a different city and highlight how to get the most out of a 2-4 day stay. Sometimes we write about the city ourselves, while other times we’ll have awesome guest bloggers giving us the low-down.

We’d literally known each other for all of twelve hours, and had been trusted to do our work and not loot the place to sell stuff at a pawn shop later.
