Well the plane from Gatwick was delayed by an hour… I suppose fair enough when your going to be sitting in an aluminium tube for the next 10 hours!!!
Our seats we’re next to each other, but a very nice young Canadian lady was prepared to swap seats with my so a) Kim and I got to sit next to each other and b) I actually had better leg room… Well thank god the 3rd passenger in our little section was a lovely english lady flying out to Vancouver to stay with her daughter and luckily she had a sense of humour and with the three of us chatting and laughing the time actually didn’t go too badly.
Vancouver here we come….. Yes the eagle has landed and god help the Canadians!!! I mean do they really know what they’ve let themselves in for? Hummm probably not :0)
We collected the car which is actually a lovely Ford Escape and headed off for Whistler. An hour and a half later and we were STILL leaving Vancouver, or should I say trying to leave… Heading for Whistler became heading for Seattle and my SatNav told me that Whistler was a 7 hour drive and over 480km!! Hummmm I don’t think so….
We finally made it to our hotel in Whistler at 19:00 and I’m sitting trying to keep my eyes open whilst typing this as it’s either 05:20 on Friday morning UK time or only 21:20 on Thursday evening so my body doesn’t really know whether it’s coming or going…
Before I depart from the night, what are our first impressions? Well quite simply absolutely breath-taking… STUNNING!!!
Nite nite all from two very tired travellers who have been on the go for over 25 hours now :0(
