I am a Vancouverite

A born-and-raised, through-and-through, right-down-to-the-core Vancouverite.


But I’ve never been as Mountie-hugging, as maple leaf-waving, as red-wearing as I am now.


That’s what hosting the world does to you.


Spent the whole day playing tourist in Vancouver, posing in front of landmarks I drive by every day on the way to work.


And boy was it fun.


Because not only was it a sunny Olympic-hosting day, but it was also Chinese New Year.


Happy Year of the Tiger, friends! Gooooooo Canada!

    Larissa — Yes! Let’s play tourist every day! We walked and walked and walked for literally eight hours. I’ve never spent so much time downtown (unless you count the work week, in which case I spend that much time downtown every day).

    Miss Neira — I know! The Olympics have turned us into flag-waving Canadians. Sooooo not our usual style!

    Dreamsequins — Both our cities are so alive right now, huh? And for entirely different reasons. NYFW would be amazing!

    MizzJ — Thank you! It’s Ralph Lauren. So cozy. I love it!

    […] favourite experience of the entire 17 days? It wasn’t watching the torch relay, or playing tourist in the city I grew up in, or the Norwegian curling team’s pants. It was short track speed […]
