In September 2014, my travel feature article “Exploring Vancouver” and an accompanying photo set appeared in the “Savor the City Life” issue of asianTraveler Magazine . The article depicts my return to favorite spots in Vancouver as well as well... It was written only a few months after I returned from studying abroad in Edinburgh, so it approached the city from both the perspective of a resident and an outsider. Thanks to my best friend Kim Tsan for exploring the city with me during the research phase of this article and serving as a wing-woman while I did street photography. Thanks also to Laura and Amy for their expertise on Vancouver’s history and music scene. Exploring Vancouver: an Insider’s Guide to a Multicultural Metropolis When I returned to Granville Street in Vancouver after nine months abroad, a young boy was chasing a flock of seagulls in front of two skyscrapers. Nearby, a street violinist performed Coldplay’s “Viva la Valda”. Bikers soared up and down mountainous streets. It was a misleading first impression, like the glass-windowed high-rises that overshadowed historic plaques, street art, and indie bookstores. After living abroad, I needed to regain familiarity with Vancouver—to revisit my favourite spots, speak with locals, and embrace the multiculturalism at the centre of the city’s cuisine, art, and music.
By design we accompanied our Yorkshire chums the Two-Jays, who had coincidentally booked the same flight back to England. The outward journey from Katakilos to Manchester Airport was largely uneventful. It involved a lot of waiting, eating & drinking & laughter whilst riding on the ferry and waiting to catch the airport bus at the mainland ferry port and our flight “home”. The 7C Manchester temperature that greeted us as we got off the ‘plane led to a 30 second sucking in of air over the teeth. However, after we left the car-hire place at Manchester Airport, it was a different matter. The first set of flashing yellow lights on the overhead gantry on the motorway informed us that our preferred route to Doncaster, via the Woodhead Pass, was closed. No problem though, we’ll take the trans-Pennine motorway route instead – a little bit longer in terms of mileage and time, but hey-ho. The second set of flashing gantry lights put paid to that school of thought, informing us that the M62 was also closed in two places going eastwards to Yorkshire. The only other available route was the aptly named Snake Pass, whose single lane carriageway literally snakes up and over the Pennines, dropping into Sheffield – miles out of our way.
