When The Mister and I finally decided to move to British Columbia and after my brain recovered from thinking about all the things I’d miss and also all the things we’d need to do to move to British Columbia, I got excited. Like, really excited. I don’t put a whole lot of stock on bucket lists because I feel like if you don’t do them you’ll feel an even bigger letdown BUT if I was 100% honest, there are some things I know I have to do! I feel they’ll be attainable, which I think is the most important aspect of making and completing goals.
So without further ado my BC bucket list:
1. Ski Whistler.
Growing up as a Canadian girl who skis, this was the mecca of skiing. I’m sure there are better mountains that get more snow or have better runs but Whistler was THE place to have an awesome ski trip and I am so excited to go skiing. Ya know, right after The Mister learns to ski…
2. Go whale watching.
Growing up I was obsessed with a few types of animals: primates, otters, meerkats, penguins, cows and whales. This has been on my bucket list since I was about 8 years old, so this is a MUST!
3. Watch the Toronto Blue Jays play at another stadium
There aren’t any major league baseball teams in British Columbia, but Vancouver is so close to Seattle, that I’m so stoked to go see the Toronto Blue Jays play at Safeco Field in Seattle.
4. Go to the top of Grouse Mountain
I’m always in awe of skylines. Located in North Vancouver, Grouse Mountain apparently has spectacular views of the Vancouver skyline that are a must-see for me!
5. Vancouver Aquarium
Dedicated to the preservation of aquatic animals, the Vancouver aquarium located in Stanley Park is supposed to be an amazing experience. They even have animal encounters – you can see otters, penguins, belugas and dolphins up close. This is a MUST!
6. Eat at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers
Being from Ontario, I’d never heard of Red Robin but when I went gluten-free I joined a Canadian gluten-free Facebook group and people raved at how good the burgers were at Red Robin and how well they “get” Celiac Disease so I am stoked to finally be in the same province as them! I’m hoping this will make for an awesome date night with The Mister.
So tell me, have you been to British Columbia? If so, what should I add to my bucket list?
