Vancouver, Where Dreams Come True-ver (Part 1)

Just like the Vancouver public transit vehicles that apologize to you when they’re not in service, I’m also terribly sorry, eh, for this delayed trip report.  You know how it is: full-time job, two classes, two pets, one husband–life can be quite demanding at times.

So, continuing from where we left off last week, my co-workers barely made our connection in Toronto (where our layover was a generous 35 minutes. Plenty of time to get through customs and buy food for our impending 5+ hour flight to YVR), but we did, and were pleasantly surprised to find Air Canada sporting individual entertainment systems on their flight.  I got to watch Wrath of the Titans (don’t get jealous now) and Batman Begins…[suspense building]…for free!  When’s the last time you got anything free on an American carrier?  You can’t even get a full can of soda on flights anymore (US Airways, ya stingy jerks…!)

After what seemed like an incredibly long nap, I woke up in Vancouver, British Columbia! Look at them thar mountains!
