Vancouver

It's such a lovely feeling, arriving into a major city with a bike in a bike box, to start a big adventure, knowing there is someone there to pick you up at the airport. Thanks Kevin. Much appreciated.
My bike box has been lost on the previous 3 bike trips (Germany, Colombia and Morocco) but voila, there it was at the oversized baggage carousel in Vancouver airport.
I was spending the weekend with my cousin Kevin and his wife of one year, Helen. I had never met Helen and hadn't seen Kevin for about 14 years we guessed.
Thanks guys for the warm welcome and the 5 star hotel service.

After building up the bike (Sherpa) which went surprisingly smoothly. I headed off to explore the 3rd most liveable city in the world, according to The Economist Index (2015). I did need Kevin and his trusty toolbox to help with the front pannier racks, which I had never used before.

This beautiful sight is about 10 minutes walk from Kevin's apartment. Gorgeous.

The same spot is also good for a spot of 'before work' sea kayaking.
