Our short but sweet time in Vancouver

October 14, 2017
Vancouver one day guide

Vancouver: There’s hardly any other city in the world I heard more good things about.

Trieste Canal grande

Once a year (at least) a trip to Italy means balm for the soul: This country has a certain magic whether it has to do with the food, the incredibly rich culture or simply their la dolce vita way of life.
