Vancouver & Seattle Trip via Instagram

September 08, 2012

I'm always up for a quick trip to Vancouver. Because I get to eat. And eat some more. And more. My trips over to the West coast normally consist of the following in a cycle: eat, shop, eat, sleep, eat, visit the beach, repeat. It never ends - the food in Vancouver is so much better than what I can get in Edmonton, so I use every opportunity I have to take in the calories and enjoy. Here's just some snippets of my week away - in essence, previews of posts to come :)
