Canada – Vancouver

A different world, Day 320-331
After a long flight, which took us only 25 minutes 😉, we are happy to have landed again. In the first supermarket we stop and we enjoy after almost 9 months a Gruyere cheese from Switzerland 🇨🇭 👍😀
Vancouver we like extremely well. After such a long time in Asia, we enjoy the green parks, the well-kept city (except for the drug area, which is shocking), the active Canadians, the good bike paths, the outdoor shops and the cozy cafes everywhere. We’re slimming down weight on our bikes and luggage one more time because we want to cycle more mountain bike trails here in Canada and as well in the US. We are overwhelmed by the warm hospitality of our warmshower hosts Greg & Brittany, David & Andrea and the family Catherine & Joye with Manu! At this point a big thank you to all!

On Tuesday we have our interview appointment at the US Embassy. This is because we traveled through Iran. The visa is granted👍
On Wednesday we drive north on the sunshine coast highway. This tour was recommended to us. Unfortunately, the sun almost never shone and we had scattered showers. Luckily, there were three ferries up until Powell River and mostly it rained exactly then. We tested our bikes for trail suitability. The new, wider tyres with a good profile prove themselves and we enjoy the wooded, lonely trails.

Unfortunately we don’t see any bears, but we discover a snake, are frightened by a vulture and eagle 🦅, surprise a Canadian woodchicken and see a raccoon.😀.

Back in Vancouver we can pick up our passports with the USA visa at the post office. Now we can travel to the USA 🇺🇸 for 6 months each for the next 10 years.

  1. Liebe JuAn
    imposante Stadt, wilde Trials, schöne Tieraufnahmen – Eure Fotos werden immer professioneller. Ein Reisebuch lässt sich später sicher schreiben und veröffentlichen (ihr braucht ja auch künftig Einnahmen wenn Ihr jährlich 6 Monate in USA reisen könntet).
    Eri hat uns und Werner/Ursi auf’s Schiff eingeladen, wir genossen die Zugersee-Rundfahrt und staunten wieder einmal wie wunderschön auch unsere Gegend ist.
    Herzlichi Grüess PaMa
