Canada and Alaska – Part 3, Day 3: Return to Vancouver


Well, the weather is certainly better than yesterday, but apparently nowhere near as hot as home - Kettering is up in the the high 20s/low 30s at the moment!!

What to do? Fly home early? Maybe not!

Actually, as things turned out, neither of us felt ‘100%’ today and we didn’t get much sleep. We therefore decided to take it easy and stay local. it was therefore an ideal oportunity to visit the Shopping Village that we’d seen from the SkyTrain a few days back – and it was only a couple of stops down the line too at ‘Templeton’.



Well, it certainly is large…

…with plans to be even larger…

…it really did feel like a small English village…

…but there was a distinct lack of eateries…

…and even fewer bargains! In fact, comparing prices, even with the regular ‘80% off’ deals (and allowing for the poor ‘£’ currently), it was still cheaper back in the UK! After a quick bite to eat, we headed back to the SkyTrain and the Hotel. Overall, we’re a bit disappointed, but it proves that size isn’t everything, and it’s what you do with it that counts!

Last full day here tomorrow, as we’re flying home on Wednesday!
