After almost 21 hours of travelling and we finally touched down in Vancouver. It seemed I had passed the time away on the flight by eating, drinking and frequent toilet visits. Oh, and I also watched the Steve Jobs movie which good. He certainly was a great visionary, if not a little difficult to get on with – make that a lot difficult!
We had left a damp, cloudy London and arrived in a sunny west coast destination. Any aches and pains from the plane journey were soon forgotten. The added treat towards the end of the journey were some great views of the Rockies in a near perfect, cloudless sky!
Vancouver airport seemed light and airy. Very different from Heathrow. Immigration was a breeze, unlike our experiences at JFK. Even the guy at the immigration desk was friendly and chatty. We got a couple of recommendations from him of mountains to see when we journey through the Rockies. Let’s hope they’re on the itinerary. I must check it our later!
By the time we arrived at our hotel, we were just ready to catch up on sleep. A couple of quick showers, lights out and there we were in dreamland, anticipating the next day.
