Today was an adventurous day!
I started the day with my early morning walk, so I could take in Vancouver before becoming really busy, but it was still pretty busy. Never the less, it was still a really nice walk.
Afterwards, we visited Lynn Canyon Park in North Vancouver, where there is the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge.
It was a nice way to start the day, get away from the city. Lynn Canyon Park is like a tropical island, there was even a hiking trail where there were free roaming Black Bears. I really wanted to do it, but the rest of my family walked in the opposite direction, I didn't want to do it on my own.
For lunch, we grabbed some pizza, and got on the Pacific Highway in the pursuit of a quiet a beach eat in and chill for a while.
After Lunch, we continued down the Pacific Highway until we reached a town called Whistler. Vancouver and Whistler were the twin bases for the 2010 Winter Olympics. There was a red Bull Krankworks downhill mountain biking event going on at the time, which was pretty cool, especially the free food and RedBull drinks!
On the way to Whistler, we drove past this Bungee Jumping place, and I knew straightaway that I had to do it! After Whistler, we went back to the Bungee Jumping place, expecting to be sent away because of there being an age limit or something. Turns out that they throw any old person off it. Weight is an important factor.
I have always wanted to do a Bungee Jump, as crazy as they are, so I went ahead and did it. And besides, you get a free t-shirt afterwards!
And here is my reactions afterwards:
After that, I didn't have much of an appetite, but I did end up having some Philadelphia Cheese Steak which I didn't manage to have whilst we were in Phily, but it was very tasty!
