In February 2017, Philly and I were in Seattle and took a quick weekend trip with daughter Maria and her girlfriend Alicia, from their “study home” at the University of Washington in Seattle, up to Vancouver. The girls had never been to Canada before, which made for an extra-fun cross-border adventure despite the chilly weather in early February.
We spent as much time outdoors as we could, given the cool temperatures. And fortunately, the winter season meant that hotel rates in Vancouver were much more affordable than usual. This allowed us to stay in probably the nicest hotel in my memory in the Americas, the wonderful Fairmont Pacific Rim. If you ever get a chance to stay there, don’t pass it up.
