Imagine a city with an island smack bang in the center of it. What if I tell you that the island has a fascinating history as well as the youthful buzz about it? Granville Island is all that and much more. Arguably the epicenter for Vancouver's culinary enthusiasm, you must walk around the market for flavors of fresh fruits, local cheese, maple syrup and handmade chocolate. Anyone spending a weekend in Vancouver must visit this iconic location. If you’re into collecting souvenirs, consider dropping a few dollars on handmade soaps, paintings or silk scarves. Cap day one of the weekend in Vancouver guzzling beer at the Granville Island Brewing!

From downtown Kelowna, the Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park is a short 25 minute drive up into the surrounding hillside through rolling vineyards and past several amazing lookout points. The road is partially paved, while the last eight kilometers are grated dirt road and quite rugged. As such, a vehicle with a higher clearance is recommended (our SUV worked well). Although we did see many cars make the trip, slower driving is a must to ensure you don’t bottom out on some of the bigger potholes. As for signage, the road is clearly marked with blue signs directing visitors to the Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park and making navigation simple.
So I went to Canada with my family this summer. We were driving from Vernon, BC to Vancouver and we didn't have a place to stay in Vancouver so we decided to book by air BNB. We knew that it was easy and the app was amazing. Plus we would get our own home and a huge place to stay. But there was a small problem with this, my parents were a little skeptical because they hadn't used the app before and we all know how Indian parents are when it comes to online shopping or online payments. So my parents thought that we could ask the homestay lady to allow us to pay by cash when we reached the spot. She was really sweet and she told us that she'd keep the house on hold for us.
