  34. To be a part of the sparkle that denotes the great and beautiful city ,that is Vancouver…would be a dream come true, my grandfather left a war torn Budapest and made a life in Canada, it saved his life in the 1950’s. To be a part of this day would make a circle whole again and make memories even more vibrant. Happy Canada Day! The place where dreams are allowed to happen and be free..

    It’s one of those moments that you stop – stop everything – using your phone – being distracted – stop multitasking – full stop .. Because it’s fireworks .. So you stand with your people & just take it all in – let it just amaze you whilst it fills the sky .. I love those moments in Vancouver .. They’re spectacular – unforgettable – worth the time out from everything .. Breathtaking
