New years – 2009
After literally pushing my way on to an over-packed bus from Nicole’s house I arrived for new years eve in Vancouver. I dropped my bags at HI Vancouver and without plans for NY and not having much time there I decided to just wander the streets. After talking to some locals it was decided that I would go to a local soul night, but in a comedy of errors I got lost, walked in the rain for an hour and arrived to the bar just as the countdown happened, looking in from the outside in the pouring rain.
I ended up leaving and just wandering downtown Vancouver until the wee hours of the morning until I went to bed to get up for my early train back to the US.
I know I am not the first person to liken Vancouver to Melbourne. It was a really pretty city with lovely folk, nice cafe’s, and as usual I got the opportunity to spend far too much money on vintage clothes.
