Was able to take a day trip up to Whistler whilst in Canada. It was about a 2 hour bus ride from Vancouver. (If it sounds familiar, it’s because the 2010 Winter Olympic took place here)
Part of me regrets not staying here for a night! It looks a little gloomy from the photos, but it was truly a winter wonderland. Doesn’t get any more picturesque in my opinion.
We went to Peaked Pies for lunch in Vancouver since it seemed like a nice quick meal. Kevin insisted on getting the Kangaroo meat pie… Seriously, this pie is not for the weak of stomach. (Kevin complained of a stomach ache for the rest of the day haha…) Their Steak, Bacon and Cheese pie is quite delicious and left me satisfied/full for the rest of the day!
Slowly froze to death while exploring Whistler on foot. If you enjoy skiing/snowboarding, this is the place for you! Sadly I can do neither haha…
Still plenty of interesting things to do besides snow sports. They actually have an amazing museum dedicated to the First Nations! (First Nations = Canadian term for “Native Americans”)
If you’re planning a trip to British Columbia, I highly recommend stopping in Whistler. It’s gorgeous all year around from photos that I’ve seen while researching our trip.
Hope it’s not a photo overload… Thanks for reading!
