Thank you very much!

DAY 5: Traveled 114km: I made it to Vancouver! :) In the morning I decided to visit Vancouver Aquarium. The traffic in Vancouver was pretty bad but the views are fantastic! I really want to move here... anyone would like to sponsor me?

I was trying to get close to one of the trees in the area and my rear tire slipped on some roots... I went down with the bike, luckily there was a men near by who helped me to get my heavy loaded bike back up. I'm all good and the bike has only a small scratch on the top case and a bend in my rear crash bar (I should be able to straighten them when I will get back to Calgary). These crash bars are so great for protecting your bike, really recommend them!

I visited aquarium before but this time I thought it was pretty small, specially for the $34 (I didn't pay for parking)... I still enjoyed it of course!

I can watch these for hours!

I made a quick stop at Vespa Vancouver, just to take a look what they had :)

From a recommendation of what to do in Vancouver I was told to visit a "clothes optional" beach.. so I did. Crazy busy, hundreds of people.. I was able to squeeze between cars in a prime parking spot! The beach is located on a bottom of the hill with 478 stairs (yes I counted)... Did I tell you how much I dislike stairs?!

For the night I'm staying with my college friend, who was very kind to give up his bed for me and provided a great dinner! We had a nice relaxing swim in the pool and I was promised a breakfast tomorrow morning :)
