TAKING THE PLUNGE
Imagine free falling from 10,000 feet for 40 seconds at a rate of 200km/hr. Then, spend another 6 minutes slowly parachuting back to Earth. As if that wasn’t awesome enough, add the beautiful backdrop of Vancouver! I am very happy to say that I was brave enough to venture off to Vancouver and knock this off of my bucket list this past May. As someone who loves heights and the rush of adrenaline, this was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever done! I loved the feeling of being completely free and letting go of all control as I fell in free fall. It was a really stress-relieving feeling! I would absolutely do this again if I had the opportunity to do so. As for the rest of my Vancouver trip, we were able to do a couple of really great hikes. The first hike was located in Pemberton, about 3 hours north of Vancouver, called Joffre Lakes. Each of the 3 lakes were absolutely breathtaking and worth every bit of the 5-hour trek. Next up, was the Stawamus Chief hike. This was a much more difficult hike. It actually had parts where we had to climb ladders, and use chains to help pull ourselves up! Unfortunately, it was also raining quite a bit throughout most of the 600ft climb, which added the difficulty level. Luckily, when we got to the top, the
clouds cleared for a couple of minutes and we were able to get a decent view!
On every one of our trips, food always plays an important role. Vancouver has amazing choices for food and I am a huge fan of sushi and other raw seafood. We had a ton of sushi, practically daily, and we were never disappointed. We also had lots of recommendations to go to a restaurant called Fanny Bay. This restaurant was probably one of the best meals we had on the trip. We tried their raw prawns, oysters and scallops and we were blown away! I know raw seafood may not be for everyone but if it is something you enjoy, this is a must try! This was my third time heading out to British Columbia and I always have a great time when I’m there. I love the countless hikes and scenery it offers and of course, all the incredible choices in food. I can’t wait until the next time I am back and I hope to be able to make it out to Victoria Island in one of my future visits! I’ll see you again soon B.C. - Coco Ang
