The history, the islands, the culture, the people and of course… the food!
Honestly, I was a little concerned about the food in Greece because they are known for their love of olives (which I dislike) and their use of feta (probably my least favourite cheese – don’t judge me!). But I soon realized, when it comes to eating, Greece offers one of the most diverse dining experiences and some of the best food I’ve had the pleasure of inhaling.
Therefore, for this Thursday’s Three Things I’m talking about my favourite dishes in Greece.
If I could recommend any time to visit Canada it would be the summer, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
I absolutely adore my country and cannot say enough great things about it, but I would be foolish if I said, “Canada is great to visit any time of the year”. That my friends, is not an accurate statement.
Don’t get me wrong – Canada is beautiful in the winter, and if you’re an avid skier or snowboarder it might be your dream to visit our incredible mountain ranges (specifically the west coast, where you’ll find some of the best skiing on the planet). Having said that, I would HIGHLY advise visiting Canada during the summer months, when you don’t have to wear layers of clothing and scrape ice off your rental car.
There are a variety of afternoon activities I enjoy participating in. For example, a leisurely walk through Stanley Park, some window shopping on Robson, or strolling for goodies through Granville Island. Without a doubt, however, my favourite afternoon activity is grabbing a happy hour drink with friends.
This glorious afternoon tradition is only a recent phenomenon here in beautiful Vancouver. When I worked as a bartender in the city, I remember countless tourists who would wander in around three o’clock to ask about happy hour specials, only to be told, “We don’t do happy hour”. How uncivilized.
