Last week I went international and traveled to Vancouver for the first time. It was also my first time out of the country. It was also my first time traveling anywhere with coworkers. Basically, a lot of firsts. This post is going to be a general trip overview and then I will have other posts about food and at least one additional post about brunch, maybe two, we’ll see how it goes.
