AVT World Tour – Trip 1: Stadtroda to Burnaby (day two)

Image

Yaletown from Granville Island

Ekin was my guide on that day, together with Mark and Colin from IT. We drove to the Vancouver Aquarium, where we saw a lot of jellyfish, penguins, dolphins, otters, sea lions, and beluga whales. Maybe we also saw some Guppies, Stingrays, Mantas, Pikes or Makos, but I am not an expert of fish species and could not recognize them!

Day 2 team in Yaletown

After lunch we drove to the West side of Vancouver where the University of British Columbia is located, and we saw a traditional west coast Native American totem pole at the Museum of Anthropology. We went back to Yaletown where Ekin and I took a water taxi that took us over Granville Island to visit its famous market. We had dinner at a nearby restaurant, and I tasted the famous wild Salmon fish and chips. Wild salmon is a very popular fish on the west coast.

AVT World Tour – Etappe 1: Stadtroda —> Burnaby (Tag 2)

Diesmal war Ekin mein Reiseführer, unterstützt von Mark und Colin von der IT-Abteilung. Wir fuhren zum Vancouver Aquarium und bewunderten eine Vielzahl von Quallen, Pinguinen, Delphinen, Ottern, Seelöwen und Belugawalen. Vielleicht sahen wir auch Guppies, Stingrays, Mantas, Pikes oder Makos, aber ich kenne mich zu schlecht mit Fischen aus und konnte sie nicht erkennen!

Nach dem Mittagessen fuhren wir in den Westen von Vancouver, wo sich die Universität von British Columbia befindet. Im Völkerkundemuseum konnte ich ein echtes Indianertotem der lokalen Ureinwohner bestaunen. Wir fuhren zurück nach Yaletown. Dort fuhren Ekin und ich per Wassertaxi nach Granville Island hinüber, um deren berühmten Markt zu besichtigen und Lachs-Fish and Chips zu essen.
