The city of Vancouver makes regular appearances on many “most beautiful places to live” lists year after year…and even though you’ll probably call me biased, I totally agree!!
I grew up in a flat and landlocked suburb of Toronto; but as far back as I can remember, I’d dreamed of the mountains and ocean – not to mention the temperate climate! – of Canada’s wonderfully picturesque west coast. Never mind that I don’t ski or swim…it was (and still is) all about getting to enjoy some of Mother Nature’s most stunning vistas firsthand!!
Of course, living beachfront will likely never become a reality for us – not when the price for a merely “average” Vancouver home is a cool one million dollars! – but Robin and I were absolutely thrilled to discover that we have a much-coveted mountain view from the livingroom window of our new condo… something we’ll be enjoying even more as we head towards summer!!
By the way – the photos of our place that I promised you back when we first moved?? I swear they’re still coming; I just want to wait until we have the fog and gloom that makes up a typical Vancouver winter well behind us!!
