More Visits From Home

Hello and welcome to update for week 7!

On Monday morning, we woke up in Victoria and had breakfast at the hotel. After that, it was time to go out and explore the city! We took a walk along the waterfront to see Fisherman’s Wharf. It was super cozy and very unique to experience. Then we headed towards the old town and Chinatown. Victoria City has many different styles; one moment you’re walking past new buildings, then you turn down a street and find yourself in Chinatown, and next, you turn down another street and feel like you’re in olden days. I think Victoria is a super cozy city, and I would love to come back to it. It’s definitely worth a visit!

Tuesday, I had school during the day, but I was really looking forward to the evening because I was going to dine at the Revolving Restaurant Top of Vancouver. The view was absolutely fantastic, and it’s definitely a must-see when you’re in Vancouver. Unfortunately, we saw it on a cloudy, gray day, but on a sunny day, you have a view of both the water, mountains, and the city!

Wednesday was also spent at school. On Thursday, I met up with my family for brunch and had some enjoyable hours with them before they had to head back to Denmark. It was sad to say goodbye since I won’t see them for another 3 months. But it was wonderful to have them visit, and I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity. In the evening, I went out to dinner at a Greek restaurant in Gastown with two other Danish exchange students from Simon Fraser.

The visits were not over yet! On Friday, I met up with my friend from Denmark, who was visiting Vancouver with her sister. They came up to Simon Fraser, and I showed them the school, unfortunately on a cloudy, gray day, so there wasn’t much to see. Afterward, we drove to Mann’s Farms to see their pumpkin patch, and on the way back, we stopped by Fort Langley and had coffee and cake at Café Saba. It was a super cozy town that looked like a movie set with its charming streets and shops. The sun was shining, and the trees were beautiful in shades of orange. In the evening, we dined at a delicious Asian restaurant in Kitsilano.

On Saturday morning, we had a waffle brunch at a café called Nero. It was super delicious and cozy! Then we went thrift shopping at Value Village and found some really nice things. On Sunday, we took a walk around Seawall and spent some time in Downtown before saying goodbye until January. It was a wonderful week with people from back home, and it’s been lovely to experience.
