Tourism, Leisure Activities & Sightseeing in British Columbia from Mitch
Welcome, dear reader, to this site, no matter, how’ve you come across
it: on purpose or by chance. For starters, I suggest taking a virtual trip across British Columbia. Our first step: we will begin with the great city of Vancouver and its vicinity – everything worth seeing and attending, -what your soul can benefit emotionally and spiritually. Definitely, we won’t forget to write about leisure and fun activities, and/or how you may want to spend your spare time, both adults and children. We are not going to confine ourselves to Vancouver only, and are intending to expand our research in tourism further, in future incorporating all of the beautiful British
Columbia, Canada, North America, well, the whole world. Wow! Some of
you may exclaim like I am blurting out too much, yet why cannot we just be patient and see what happens out of this project in the long run. All right, and why don’t we give it a good start, so far? Well, if you happen to have questions, remarks or just a desire to speak up, go ahead and drop us a line or two at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit your opinion below.

In English most people will call this food “souvlaki”. Some even call it “shishkebab”. However, in Iran and throughout the former Soviet Union, this meal is called – SHASHLYK. In any Greek tavern you will find “souvlaki” out of lamb, chicken and pork.
I wrote earlier where to ride roller blades in Vancouver area, see about rollerblading in Vancouver . Here I’ll let you know where you can ride a car late at night, h-m, a little loaded maybe.
This is one of my favourite pastimes. For three years in a row we’ve been going to the Golden Ears Provisional Park , lake Alouette. I’d suggest casting a glance at their website for starters to grasp a basic idea how it looks like, and it looks gorgeous. On their site you’ll find all info how to get there, etc.
This monastery lies on the way to the Steveston Fisherman Wharf , or, to be more precise, the Market is located behind the Temple, – let’s pay tribute to the sanctuary.
I probably will not sound a cool and tough fella at all if I say that I just love to do cross-country skis. It may look especially silly here in Vancouver, which is famous for its mountain-skiing bases.
Well, and we carry on with a series of stories about winter entertainments/sports in Vancouver. Today I’m writing about down-the-hill tobogganing.
Definitely, you won’t call this one a sport. It’s just an activity, but a good one, and kids seem to really enjoy it. Where can one snow tube in Vancouver? It’s on mountains Cypress and/or Seymour. I don’t know, maybe you can practise it on mountain Grouse, as well, yet I haven’t been there yet. [...]
This column is part of the site www.arbetov.com and it’s about travels, trips, journeys, voyages, hiking, picnics, and, of course, history of the land: Vancouver and its vicinities. It’s about adventure, as well…
The year 2005 came, yet I still can’t get rid of the memories of that audacious trip, which my wife and I made almost three years ago from Bloomington, Indiana, to Vancouver, B.C. So you do have a chance to read it now.
As usual, I went to see this parade with the children, but not by car. We grabbed sky-train, ‘cuz it’s really painful to find a parking spot on such an occasion. We arrived approximately one hour and a half in advance, and right away found ourselves in the joyful crowd of people.
Park Stanley is the first place to start with; it’s also the most picturesque. In case you don’t have your own roller-blades just at the corner of Denman street there is a couple of shops where you may rent them at an hour rate or for the whole day.
No exaggeration – this is one of the most interesting museums in Vancouver area. It is located in the old mine in about 45-minute drive from the city if you head towards Whistler (reminder: the winter Olympics of 2010 will take place in Whistler).
So, what is this ‘Science World’ all about. Well, it’s a place both for adults and children. The building was constructed in 1986, and one of the EXPO86 pavilions was located there. Later they made ‘Science World’ out of it.
