I have lived and worked in Vancouver for 30 years as a professional writer and editor, watching the city evolve beyond its Anglo-European beginnings to become Canada's most culturally diverse metropolis.
I'll be happy to answer all of your questions about vacationing here — or elsewhere in British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.
If this is your first visit to Vancouver let me help you get the most out of your holiday with advice and suggestions about where to go, what to see and do, which restaurants and nightspots to try, museums and galleries to visit, beaches, day hikes, special events; and if you've been before, perhaps I can help place the city in a fresh context, with background on its history, ethnography, politics and arts.
My number one goal is to make your visit to British Columbia a happy one, providing you with a home away from home that is restful, genial, serene, and secure.
