587. Rockies Roadtrip | Day 2 - UBC & Canada Place

Bellagio Cafe Canada Place
Today, I went with my aunt to UBC then around the harbourfront area of Vancouver. Then in the evening we went with my other aunt and uncle who live in Vancouver for dinner (along with a few of their friends as well). I wanted to visit the UBC campus as one of my Toronto friends studied here for the last several years and suggested I visit. He's now back in Toronto so my aunt and I went around on his recommendations of where to go and eat.

Rose Garden UBC
Visiting the campus made me think back to all those years ago when I was applying to universities. I had actually wanted to come to UBC before..I applied for a business program and got accepted. But then I ended up staying in Toronto since I also got accepted to the Fashion Communications program at Ryerson and decided to go there instead..I wonder how different my life would've turned out if I did end up going to UBC for business!

Fairmont Pacific Rim
The Vancouver Club
Vancouver Canada Place
Vancouver cruise seaplane
Then we walked around downtown a bit and went for some dessert by the water (first photo). I realized that for all the cities I've visited so far (and even at home in Toronto)...my favourite areas to walk around are by the water/harbour. I really loved it here..will have to come back another day for a longer walk. There were a lot of seaplanes flying around. They're so cute! We actually have one booked next week to fly to Victoria..I didn't realize they were so tiny. Either the cruise ship is huge or the plane is tiny hahah.

Next time I come to Vancouver I definitely want to add on a cruise trip to Alaska as well. I wanted to go this time but unfortunately my dates didn't work out. I really love Vancouver so far and it's only my first full day here.. I already want to come back again in the future!
