VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver is a magical place for anyone looking for some peace and quiet and want to be one with nature even for just a few hours. It is included in the top 10 Best Public Gardens in North America. It boasts a 55-acre botanical garden designed elaborately and beautifully allowing visitors to educate themselves of the different plants in the world and enjoy their leisure time in the garden as well.
Here is my story in photos:
On your way out, they have a gift shop for you to buy souvenirs. Now I don’t normally stay in gift shops but VanDusen’s have tons of really cool books about plants that I can’t take my eyes and hands off.
For more information, you may check their website here. Enjoy!

I am a self-confessed adrenaline junkie, always enjoying the speed — riding in the fastest cars and looking forward to riding the fastest and scariest rollercoasters of the world. And Superfly is probably the fastest zipline I’ve experienced in my life!
Located in Whistler, BC, Superfly is Canada’s longest and highest zipline — it is more than 1 kilometer long, high above the grounds at 600 feet, and with speed reaching up to 100 kilometers per hour!
