Writing about travel is the hardest thing for me to do. I’d rather hack out 500 words on the stupidity of Ben Bernanke. It pains me to use terms like “nice” and “beautiful” to describe a trip. That is so boring. I think that is why it has taken so long for me to get this post up. However, when I think of my weekend trip to Vancouver two words come to mind: nice and beautiful.
The book Smile When You’re Lying has forever influenced me. The writer exposes the travel industry and the endless positivity that permeates travel writing. Great vacations can make for boring stories or maybe I just don’t have a clue on how to say nice and beautiful 10 different ways without making myself nauseous.
My Vancouver trip was mostly about the coffee. I will have a detailed report up on INeedCoffee soon and that will have its own photo gallery. Below are some non-coffee related photos from Memorial Day Weekend 2009 in Vancouver, BC. Look how nice and beautiful it was. 😮

I love Vancouver – in the summer.
We’ll be up there for work in late August. I’ll send you the dates. Most of the time we’ll be in meetings outside of town at a resort, but we’re going to try to spend a couple of days in the city and would love to see you if you’re interested.
