As some of you know, I was recently invited to take part in all that Vancouver has to offer its tourists (along with everyone else in Vancouver who also works in the tourism industry - so let's not pretend I'm special!). Most of these things I probably wouldn't have done on my own, or would… Continue reading My Top 10 Things To Do In Vancouver
