I just wanted to share some of my favorite snapshots from my latest trip. It was amazing as usual, since my husband and I always have the best times together on vacation. I titled this entry as Honeymoon Destination, because for all of you winter sports people out there, Whistler and Vancouver will really give you so many wonderful memories. It’s a great destination in my opinion for anytime, but also for a potential winter wonderland honeymoon; since its far enough away to be remote from your real life and still close enough to be a comfortable distance from home.
In early March, my husband and I went to Whistler and Vancouver for our trip to do some snowboarding and hanging out. Our last trip to Whistler was two years ago, and since it was so fun, this trip was a must re-do. We elected to skip the 2010 Winter Olympic games to avoid crowds, which worked out so well! No lines at the lifts and no crowds on the mountain.
Even with the games over, we still had a chance to see this on the Whistler mountain top:
This was a breathtaking view and since the weather was nice, we could see the entire village below. We couldn’t ask for a better memory.
After 5 days in Whister, doing a lot of snowboarding, we had some time to explore the beautiful city of Vancouver. The Vancouver part of our trip was kind of an afterthought due to flight schedules, but boy was it such a pleasant surprise. We had an opportunity to meet up with some new friends who lived in town, and to see some signs of Spring bloom.
We don’t get to see Cherry Blossoms in LA! This was such a treat in an overcast day.
This gorgeous view was from our hotel room, overlooking Stanley Park and the waterfront. Ahhh serenity… I love how you can see the snow capped mountains in the distance.
As you can see in these very few photos, Whistler and Vancouver are both great cities to visit for a special anniversary trip or maybe your honeymoon.
Finally, I have to throw in a food shot. I got to visit the famous Japadog stand downtown. YUM! I got an okonomi dog to share with my husband. I enjoyed it, but he said he prefers the ketchup or chili dog. Boo on him.
By the way, there is a lot of great food in both Whistler and Vancouver. It’s perfect for you foodies out there.
