π 2016-01-18 01:01 in Canada, Trips
I didn't really go to Vancouver just for 26 hours :) but since I was flying through it to go to Whistler with Arturo, I went to see the few museums I hadn't on my previous trip, and went to Bloedel Floral Conservatory again, just because it's that great :)

You can read about our time in Whistler here and heli skiing there.

Since weather in Whistler sucked (rain instead of snow), I headed back early and went to see a few museums in Vancouer starting with the science museum. Its open body exposition was good, the rest was "meh"

At the end of the day, I drove to Granville Island for a bit of shopping and food:






The next day, I went to the space museum/marine museum/vancouver museum (all in one place). none of the 3 was earth shattering:










And I kept the last hour for the best Bloedel Floral Conservatory, I love this place and its beautiful and yet tame birds:
