Best of Instagram: October

I can’t believe it is November already. Last winter I expected snow and ice in Vancouver. People fly out to the “Great White North” from all over the world to go skiing, I thought. Now I know better. While there is snow on the mountains, the city gets rain and grey skies, but snow – hell no! I don’t mind as long as there is enough snow for wintersports in the mountains and fun events happening in the city. And there are plenty: The Vancouver Christmas Market is a favourite (starting on November 22nd), christmas shopping at Circle Craft awaits (opening on November 11th) and the VanDusen Festival of Lights is coming up (starting on 10th of December). And my trip to Germany, Austria and Hungary in December is getting close too!

In the meantime, here are some snaps to remember a beautiful October:

Stanley Park at it’s best. The sunny days in October brought back memories of the amazing summer we had.

Seattle is just a short train ride away from Vancouver. I love this city for many reasons – the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition and the retro-cool Space Needle are two of them.

Vancouver’s Public Art was fun in the sunshine. Now the Biennale installations bring colour to grey days. The “Love your beans” Installation at Charleson Park is one of my favourites. Watching people climbing the beans has become a favourite spectator sport on the seawall.

You know it is fall when the historic Sylvia Hotel is turning red.

My second trip to Seattle was complete with a visit to the amazing Seattle Art Museum. The current exhibitions are worth a visit. I love spending all day in the museum…

November started with a sunny morning, perfect to get some fresh air after a long Halloween night and enjoy the last fall colours at Queen Elizabeth Park.
