Vancouver, Canada


Our circuit around the Pacific began in Vancouver Canada. We flew to the city on June 12, 2003 with giant duffle bags packed with all the personal belongings we'd need for the next three months.

My parents and I arrived in Vancouver a few days before the rest of the students and we were allowed to board the ship early. This left us time to explore Vancouver and grow familiar with the ship.

We enjoyed the many sights and amenities of the city, including Stanley Park.
