THROWBACK VANCOUVER, BC

Sorry, it’s been a while. But there is a lot of things going on in my life since a lot of things are happening for my boyfriend and of course that indirectly affects me. But it’s good changes though. We just moved back to Stockholm from Växjö (where Philips recently played ice hockey), to our new apartment in Hammarby Sjöstad. Later this fall Philip are going back to Vancouver to attend some hockey camps for the Vancouver Canucks which is his new team. But their AHL team is on the East Coast in New York so there is a slight chance that he will play there as well, nothing is written in stone so to speak. So whenever I know where he will end up (that can of course change during the year) I will join him.

But anyway, I really liked Vancouver so I hope we will be there most of the time. Hope I don’t jinx this now!

So, time for some pictures. Vancouver had some absolutely stunning views!

This was the view from where we stayed so I figured why not try night photography.

The next few pictures are from Grouse Mountain which was so cool and the view overlooking Vancouver was amazing. We got a private guided tour and saw this big boy and his friend called Grinder and Coola and some cool birds, eagles, owls etc. The tour was actually arranged by Henrik and Daniel Sedin and they were there with us with their families. It felt so surreal walking on this mountain with two of the greatest ice hockey players of all time. But they were really nice and down to earth. But that was definitely something I’ll remember for a long time and it was also the highlight of the trip.

Don’t remember what this guy was called but he was cool.

We rented a car and went to Whistler, and the scenery going there was so pretty! Mountains, lakes, fog, trees. Really amazing nature.

On the way back we made a stop at Shannon falls and saw this sign, which is pretty common in the Vancouver area but it still gets you every time. Even though I’m from Sweden and the stereotype would be that we have polar bears walking the streets, which is not true of course. But the grizzlies are SO much bigger than the average black bear or the brown bear that we have in Sweden.

The nature was amazing there as well, wouldn’t expect anything else by this point.

Philip was so tired of me wanting to stop on all of the look out points to take pictures, but I managed to make him stop twice haha.

542A4733

We went to what seemed to be a really popular place called Medinas. They had a lot of healthy food but they seemed to be most popular for their waffles.

Pretty coffee, who can resist?

That was some of the pictures from our trip to Vancouver but of course I can’t share them all. Hope you enjoyed them! You’ll find more pictures on my Instagram.
