In the wilderness lies the preservation of the world.
Henry David Thoreau
Biking through Vancouver – Day 17
After about two weeks in the wilderness, we are back in civilization. Buildings, cars, oh my – people…! Everything is loud and fast. We can, of course, not complain about how the day begins: pancakes with maple syrup and blueberries. And as a surprise, a birthday cake for a special person: me! Following this typical Canadian breakfast, we rent some bikes and begin to discover the big city.
The sun shines, it is warm and everyone spends their Saturday at the beach enjoying the summer weather. Our bike tour takes us through Stanley Park, Downtown and then to Granville Island, where we have the opportunity to try Canadian specialties at the fish market. We spend the evening at the beach with tasty burgers. We are all a bit sad because our trip is now coming to an end.
See you soon!
