Hey there! I'm Torben, your go-to local host here in the breathtaking city of Vancouver. I'm all about soaking up the vibrant scenes, from the ever-changing lights in our diverse neighborhoods to the stunning backdrops of the ocean and mountains that frame our city. I've got a soft spot for the charming older buildings in Gastown and Granville Island – they add so much character to our urban landscape! I love wandering the Stanley Park and False Creek Seawalls, feeling the breeze and capturing the city's beauty from every angle. You'll often find me navigating the waters around Granville Island and Kitsilano, or exploring Gastown's cobblestone streets. My passion? Sharing Vancouver's hidden gems, from cozy neighborhood cafes to the best photo spots that offer breathtaking views. And if you're keen on civic history, I've got stories from the last 50 years that'll make you see Vancouver in a whole new light. Let's discover the city's vibrant heart together!
