|Today it's the last official day of our bus tour. We
are going to Vancouver,
from where each one of our tour group will travel home of maybe
further. Most of us are travelling tomorrow evening, so we have an
extra day: day 21, which we can spend in Vancouver.
But the day has just begun. We start by driving to the ferry that
takes us to Vancouver. In Vancouver we do a city tour with our bus,
we drive on the Lions Gate Bridge to Stanley Park where we can view
the sky line of Vancouver and look at the totem
Then we visit the Capilano
Suspension Bridge and Park, a long hanging footbridge over the
Capilano Canyon. Because it's 150 metres long and almost 80 metres
above Capilano River AND because the bridge is a bit shaky and
swinging when you walk on it, it's a nice attraction in Vancouver,
together with the accompanying park.
Our hotel has a fantastic view over the bay, where large cargo
ships and cruise ships are passing by.
In the evening we have a Farewell to Western Canada Dinner with
the whole tour group, the tour guide and our bus driver for this
western part of our trip. In the hotel bar we say goodbye to our
travel companions, with whom we had a great time. And of course we
thank our bus driver and our tour guide Paul, whom we have travelled
with for three weeks now. Thank you Paul! It was great!
Tomorrow we have some time left in Vancouver before our plane
departs to Amsterdam. So we can explore Vancouver a little more. So
some more pictures of Vancouver can be viewed on the page of
tomorrow, day 21.
