Hello again, Vancouver.
In case you missed the last installment of this series, my name is Tom. I’m new in Town.
I just moved here from my hometown of Ottawa. It was a bit of leap of faith because I’d never been to BC before, but it’s all paid off. You see, I’ve already fallen in love with your city.
Vancouver has a lot going for it: great sports teams, delicious restaurants, beautiful parks, and more. But as I clumsily learn my way through its neighbourhoods—all unfamiliar to me—I’m learning that there is so much more to this city than the obvious. As a Vancouver newbie, I’m finding that even the city’s ordinary is excellent. Even the mundane is thrilling. Yes, Vancouver, with my fresh set of eyes, I’m here to remind you to appreciate the little things—the lovely little things—because your city is full of them.
A perfect example? Vancouver’s mountains.
