We’re off! We got up at 4AM this morning to get to the airport, not sure what to expect checking two bikes and a giant duffel bag. Turns out it was easy peasy, and we were checked in and through security in half an hour.
Huge shout-out to Jessie for getting up at 4AM, renting a Zipcar minivan, and driving us to the airport!
We landed in Vancouver mid-morning and got a cab from the airport to a local bike shop to drop off our bikes to be built back up. We checked into our Airbnb, took a quick nap, and then headed out in search of food.
We like stick to two mottos when we travel:
- walk till you die
True to form, we walked 12 miles today in 90 degree weather and saw a solid half of the city on foot. We also found TWO natural food stores, amazing vegan samosas, a gelateria with 218 flavors, and celebrated our two-year anniversary (!) with delicious vegan poutine for dinner.
Vegan poutine at Meet Cafe.
We’re picking up our bikes tomorrow morning and planning to bike around the full city, including Stanley Park. Ready to get biking!
