You've probably seen it on TV during the Olympics. What more does it take to convince you to come to Vancouver, British Columbia?
The greatest thing about our place is that it is close to all the Vancouver action and nearby services but still has the outdoorsy laidback feel that is one of British Columbia's best assets. Our place is located in Burnaby, just outside Vancouver, in a quiet residential area. The house is conveniently located close to a mall, restaurants and grocery stores (10 minute walk). There are also 2 skytrain (metro-like transit system) stations within a 2 minute bus ride (or 15 minute walk) to take you to downtown Vancouver. Downtown is also just a 20 min drive away by car.
Our neighbourhood has several large trees, parks and trails. We like taking walks on the trail next to the local creek which starts a block from our place. Salmon come to spawn in the creek and can be seen at certain times of year. The trails connect to Burnaby Mountain park which also features mountain biking trails. A short 5 minute drive takes you to the top of Burnaby Mountain where you can visit Burnaby Mountain Park and conservation area and get one of the best city views (http://maps.google.ca/maps/place?hl=en&source=hp&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=burnaby+mountain+park&fb=1&gl=ca&hq=burnaby+mountain+park&hnear=Burnaby,+BC&cid=8916097453095452239).
We're a couple in our early 30s who enjoy traveling, snowboarding, scuba diving, camping, dining out and entertaining guests. We'd love to experience living in Europe for about 1 month based in a central location like Paris.
Nous parlons francais!
