This year has been one of international travel for me.  Spain back in June and Canada this month.  Though how much is Canada really international?  Hehe, couldn’t resist, though honestly, it didn’t feel very international.  This is the second time I’ve been to Canada, the first about 15 years ago to Vancouver.  That was a beautiful city, at least what I saw when it wasn’t raining.  I stayed in downtown at the Strathcona Hotel, which was priced decently and well within walking distance of many things worth seeing along the water front.  I wasn’t in town for long, so I didn’t have much time to venture more than a mile or so, but what I saw was gorgeous.  This is definitely a city I want to come back to.
