In the mind of...nicky

It is September, again! For as far as I can remember, I always mentally marked the beginning of my years with the month of September. The start of the new school year always stirs up a greater amount of emotion for me than New Years does. I guess it stems from the sadness that the end of summer days is near and the unbearable pain of having to wake up in time to catch the school bus. However, these feelings are always counteracted by the joy of back to school shopping, new lunch boxes and a few fun pack days before September.

Here is an itinerary that I would use with my friends to enjoy a great last summer day in Vancouver.

10:00 AM – 11:30 AM: Brunch on Granville Street 12:00 AM – 14:00 PM: Stroll through Stanley Park 14:30 PM – 17:00 PM: Shopping on Robson Street and coffee 17:30 PM – 19:00 PM: Granville Island, buy groceries and enjoy a nice picnic outside by the water 20:00 PM – 22:00 PM: Drinks and tapas in Gas Town 22:30 PM – 02:00 AM: Dance, Dance, Dance! 02:00 AM – 02:30 AM: After dancing pizza

Whenever I travel to a new city, I love to ask locals what is the perfect itinerary they would plan for a friend that is visiting their city. The locals would know the best places to visit and avoid all the touristy areas. I would love it if someone took this idea and create a website! People can post up their perfect itinerary for a day in their city and travelers can follow an itinerary they find the most intriguing.

YWiB is planning a lot of exciting new programs this coming year! Stay tuned and keep checking the website for more information!

Enjoy the rest of summer!
