Travel to Vancouver: Canoeing, Criminals and Canucks
Wow, Friday was something else! I’m here in Vancouver for Travel Blog Exchange (#TBEX) and arrived at my hotel around 1 a.m. Friday morning. This post will be brief but wanted to quickly share three highlights of the day. Each of these warrants their own posts and will be posted soon.
Ten other TBEX attendees and I canoed with Takaya Tours through fjords of Burrard and learned of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation. Definitely a cultural experience learning about the past, present and future. (Booking Office: 700 Apex Avenue North Vancouver, B.C., Tel: 604-904-7410)
Later in the afternoon I visited the Vancouver Police Museum to learn about the history and evolution of the city’s law enforcement and some of the icky criminals. It’s in Vancouver’s original morgue so it’s a little creepy but very cool. (240 E. Cordova Street

Vancouver Canucks won Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs tonight and since it was here in Vancouver, I spent a couple of hours at Rogers Arena soaking up the hockey energy. Even as I write this, about four hours after Vancouver won over the Boston Bruins, I can still hear fans celebrating.
Indeed, an incredible day in Canada. Stay tune for details!
Disclosure: As an attendee of TBEX, I was the guest of Takaya Tours and the Vancouver Police Museum however, opinions are my own.
