Canada, Here I Come!
to my good friend Nick, my birthday present was a trip to one of my favorite
places, Vancouver, Canada! I got to go the weekend of December 11th and
heading down there is just as much fun as getting there, with all the great
scenery along the way, including Bellis Fair! A great mall, I snuck in and
shopped a bit, noting the ol country buffet they had, but not being able to
stop and chow down.
We hit the border, and it was hardly any time before we crossed it. (perhaps December is a good time for border travel?) Anyway, we made sure to not let the roads get the best of us and found our way to King George Highway (which goes by many other names just to confuse you) and made our way to Burnaby. Burnaby is a great town just on the outskirts of Vancouver, and I love staying there, cause the hotel is right in the Metrotown Mall! Over 500 stores, three food courts, a video game place (bigger than Gameworks), movie theaters, and you can make your own trading cards there, which I have done every time I go. Plus, the Skytrain is right there, and it's about twenty minutes to be in downtown. You really can't lose!
Minute I got in, I called up my posse! There's Sean Tataryn, who is the famous Myumee doll creator ( you really have to check out his site, http://www.myumees.com), and then I called Jason who juts put on a huge Madonna event up there, and Patty, who runs a Donna Delory fan club. We agreed to a late-night meetup at a scrumptious dessert place, and that gave me time to hit the mall! I made my way (late to get my money exchanged) and got some grub. I opted for KFC, as they do things a little differently there, with fries instead of mashed potatoes and gravy on those fries. It's a lot of fun to experience what you are used to but with a whole new spin on it. I also had a root beer float (couldn't help myself) and checked out a few stores. It was time to get back, gather the gifts for my friends, and hit the train!
