Empty YVR

The trip so far has been incredibly quiet and uneventful. Ferry was easy, bus ride was easy, though I'm quite back-heavy with my pack and still need time to get used to it.


Skytrain was essentially empty. Then our check in with Air Canada was very smooth and we didn't have to pay for any bags. #winning. Monday evening seems to be the time to travel!



The vegan food quest is already in full effect and Josh sacrificed his hunger so I could eat at the food court, where they had vegan options, before we sat down to a meal at a non-vegan-friendly place. Hubby gets his first medal of the trip!

We sat down to eat at Monk's Grill and the alcohol prices were shocking, plus their craft draught beer was out. Josh's food was ok but we quickly paid so we could seek out a cheaper drink spot.


The food court serves booze and Josh knew his way around it from travelling so often (you have to sit in a designated drinking area). Our "downgrade" to cheaper drinks turned into a 5oz glass of Copper Moon in a plastic cup! I thought... there's probably going to be much, much worse ahead so I will take that plastic glasses of wine and I will enjoy it.


Our first flight takes off in an hour and a half, and we're excited but it really hasn't sunk in yet that we'll be in Africa in like.. just over a day. Josh keeps reminding me that I'm in for a rude awakening, and that I should enjoy the population of Canada while I can. I think I'll soon find out what that means!
