I was in Seattle for a few days visiting my cousin and we went up to Vancouver for a few hours.
Crossing the Border
As we drove towards Vancouver, we enjoyed the cityscape backed by majestic mountains.
The main event was going to the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
The bridge spans the deep gorge that was formed by the Capilano River.
We spent a couple of hours exploring the park, crossing bridges and enjoying the views.
Soon it was time head back but not before stopping downtown for a bite to eat.
My cousin heard about this street food cart called "Japadog". It gets great reviews and was even featured on Anthony Bourdain's show "No Reservations":
JapaDog, the city’s ultimate street food cart because, as Bourdain pointed out, every town has their hot dog variation. JapaDog’s take on mystery-meat-on-a-stick is decidedly Japanese: wasabi mayo, seaweed relish, daikon sprouts, and teriyaki sauce are just some of the Asian ingredients to meet the dogs.
3 adults and one little boy split 4 of them. The little boy only had 1/2 a bite of one but it was too spicy for him. The adults consensus: pretty good, very innovative, very happy that we tried them, but probably won't have the need to have another. It's always fun trying something new, especially when it's original to the city we're visiting.
By 4pm, we were at the border waiting patiently in the long line to get back into Washington.
It was great being in Vancouver again. It's probably my 2nd favorite big city in the world.
Thanks V & S for taking me up there! I had so much fun and created great memories!
