Public market in Grandville Island

Food is the most pleasure during any trip. Local foods and thing you can't miss. What a pleasure to taste everything I see! The Grandville Island is famous for its public market in the middle of the water. A small water taxi takes us to the island in about just few minutes!

Everything looked so delicious. Cakes, Breads, Pastries, Salmons in fillos, juicy fruits and vegetables, well, everything. I wish I could have one extra stomach that can eat everything I wanted to try!

Victoria, it is.

My friend and I thought that January as a season of winter is not the greatest time to visit anywhere. We knew. However, when you think of Vancouver, you can't miss Victoria, right?

In the rain,

Strolling and Exploring

Yummy looking gorgeous stuff were waiting for me!

While traveling, don't you imagine what local people eat, where they buy groceries, and what are available only in the local area? Well, I do. I love to explore markets, food stands, tiny corner stores, and deli.

Color of fruits in the market are brilliant. Natural colors are very appertizing. Besides red, green, yellow, white, pink for fruits and vegetables, I could see a lot of Olympic symbol color-blue, everywhere in Vancouver.

Vancouver Therapy

Strolling in the downtown, Vancouver. Here is the very famous landmark in Vancouver, steam clock. It was there just next to the restaurant that we had a cozy lunch at. Steam, fog and rain. Oh, I just love them. I was sure I could live in this city. By the way, the clock was smaller than I imagined. Who invented this? I forgot.

Vancouver is filled with the image of water. The ocean is just there, next to you. The atmosphere and misty air made me more calmer and feel peace. Relaxation, it is. If there is any such a therapeutic method, I would name it Vancouver therapy.
