Jun 20, 2018 - Vancouver

Beautiful sunrise this morning as we entered Vancouver harbor. Off ship early and just walked through Canadian customs. They did not look at our passports. Used Skytrain and bus to go to Granville Island to explore. Public market much like Pike Place Market in Seattle. Last night we had another cruise ship following us on our trip South toward Vancouver. We have finally found warm weather. Even had the sunglasses on today.

Jun 17, 2018 - Debark in Vancouver, shuttle to SeaTac airport

Disembark and heading home, June 17 We were off the boat before 8 and luckily could catch the 9 am Seattle Quick Shuttle instead of the 10 am one we booked. There was no wait for our bus at the border. We dropped off people in downtown Seattle and off to the airport. Long wait as our plane doesn't leave till 10:30 pm. I did sleep a little on the plane, but so hard to sleep sitting up. We arrived in Burlington about 10:30 am as scheduled after a short layover at JFK. Jen had dropped off our car at the airport, so we headed for home.

May 29, 2018 - Vancouver Fairmont Airport

May 29 We were able to veg out this morning, having coffee and bagels with peanut butter again for breakfast. We had to check out this morning, so we packed up and went for a walk. It was a bit chilly, about 52 and windy, but not too bad walking. After checkout, we took a cab to the Fairmont Airport Hotel. We had a great cab driver, which was nice because at one point a car was driving in the wrong direction on our one way street. There were two lanes luckily, so it was not a close call, but sort of freaky. We arrived at the Fairmont around...

May 27, 2018 - Vancouver Best Western Uptown

May 27 shuttle to Vancouver We got up early and the Sleep Inn had a great hot continental breakfast. It was around 52, but felt good so we took a short walk before taking the shuttle back to the airport where we took the Quick Shuttle bus to Vancouver. We passed the Starbucks Headquarters building while on the freeway. We had a few stops on the way, first at the Seattle cruise terminal and then downtown Seattle so we got to see some of the city again. Then off to Vancouver. The line at the border went way out to the interstate but luckily...

Mar 20, 2018 - Vancouver (In Transit)

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD The only issue, and it was minor, on our flight from Toronto to Vancouver was that we were served a second breakfast, after having a hearty breakfast omelet on our flight from Bogotá to Toronto. The menu offerings included pancakes and at first we were excited to have something other than eggs again, but when the stewardess approached us we learned that there had only been one order of pancakes, and someone had chosen it already. As I said, a minor problem, the rest of the flight was comfortable and relaxing. We...

Jan 23, 2018 - Vancouver (In Transit)

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD In mid-July 2017 we signed up for a credit card that includes access to airport lounges around the world, and already we’ve had enough trips to make it very worthwhile. This was the first trip in which we could use the pass for the Plaza Premium Lounge at the Vancouver International Airport. It was a short layover, but we appreciated the quiet atmosphere and the light lunch. It had been an early start to the day and there was a bit of a kerfluffle when our daughter and son in law’s flight home from Phoenix was...

Oct 31, 2017 - Bye-bye Vancouver

Standing at the Vancouver International Airport in the dark and pouring rain, I could only hope that Madrid would be a sunnier place! It was 5:30 am and I was all set to go. I had narrowed down my belongings to one manageable back-pack with a detachable daypack. All of my necessary documents were safely tucked in my money belt beneath my waist band. I was ready, set and raring to go! The flight to Toronto was uneventful -- the usual breakfast-and-a-movie kind of flight. I read and re-read the instructions in my guidebook for...

Oct 10, 2017 - Dubrovnik back to Vancouver

Oct 10, 2017 – and a happy birthday to my dear friend Nancy 𯎉𯎂𯎉 Up before 7am and my alarm, we do the final pack and head downstairs for breakfast and are ready for our taxi service to the airport. We are half an hour early and are first in the check-in line. We are not able to check our bags through to Vancouver as we are landing in London Gatwick and departing from London Heathrow (less than 4 hours later). This has been a source of some sleeplessness and worry and I was hoping we could at least have boarding passes for all flights....

Sep 15, 2017 - Vancouver - train

15/9/2017 Friday. Vancouver - train I was up and showered by 8am, woke Ian at 9 and checked out at 10. We left our luggage at the hotel and had breakfast at the eatery downstairs, then went to the Tourist Centre where yesterday, the Volunteer who was helping us, and Anne and Ian, had mutual friends in Launceston. Small world! Today we bought tickets for the Vancouver Lookout Tower - $9.50 pp. When we got there, the tickets were $14.50, so it was a good saving, and great 360 degree views of Vancouver and as far as the eye could see. We...

Sep 14, 2017 - Vancouver

14/9/2017. Vancouver. (Fairmont Hotel, Canada Place) We had a great sleep, and although I could have rolled over for another hour or so, I got up at 7.45am and we were ready to start the day at 8.45am. We had eggs Benedict for breakfast at a small 'health' cafe we passed yesterday, and back to the hotel to finish and post yesterday's journal. We left here about 10am with Anne and Ian, and exchanged voucher for tickets on the Hop on-Hop off bus, and started to see the sights of Vancouver. 237 cruise ships mostly going to Alaska, and 900,000...

Sep 13, 2017 - Brisbane - Vancouver

13/9/2017. Brisbane-Los Angeles-Vancouver After going to bed at 11pm and not getting a lot of sleep during the night I (Lorraine) decided to get up at 5am and be done with it. Hazel and Ron picked us up and we were at the airport just after Anne and Ian at 7.15. Checked in and now relaxing after breakfast in the Qantas Club. The plane backed out on time at 10.20, and we were in the air at 10.35. Ian has been panicking for weeks that we'd depart late and miss our connecting flight in Los Angeles - all for nothing! Our seats were great, food...
