My Husband I just returned from a breathtaking trip to beautiful British Columbia, Canada. It was a surprise gift my Husband Brent received from our Family. You can view the surprise here.
Brent and I packed up the car and drove to Pearson Airport in Toronto, Ontario. We had a night flight which was 2 hours delayed. By the time the plane took off the runway, it was 12AM. We arrived in Vancouver, BC at 2AM local time. Needless to say we were exhausted but overly excited so we didn’t sleep on the plane.
We stayed with Family on our trip and after a long night of flying we still had over 2 hours of driving until we arrived at their home in Pemberton. Our first day we were tired and a bit jet lagged so we went for a walk in Pemberton and had lunch at a yummy restaurant called Mile One. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the gorgeous view of the mountains.
On our second day, I went grocery shopping and prepared some Indian food I cooked for our hosts while Brent went out and enjoyed a day of Fishing with the boys.
On our third day, my Family drove us to Whistler for a day of sightseeing. It was the best day of our trip and the views were spectacular.
We walked through Whistler and took gondola rides to the top of Whistler/Blackcomb.
The ride is called Peak to Peak. You are taken to the peaks in small gondolas. A few fun facts about the ride:
- Total distance is 4.4km (2.73 miles)
- 3.024km/1.88 miles is the total length of unsupported span during the ride
- The highest point we achieved above ground was 436m/1427 feet
I have a HUGE fear of heights. I was terrified during the gondola rides and couldn’t look out. My Husband took these shots:
Here are a few more shots we took while walking through Whistler:
On our Last day, Brent and I went for a walk through Pemberton and then drove back to Vancouver to catch our Red Eye flight. Here are some pictures of our last day in British Columbia:
We were very sad to leave and will always treasure our short trip to BC. We saw the most spectacular views and felt so at peace with Nature. We look forward to going back soon!
