Hi there! I'm Monica, your enthusiastic host in the beautiful city of Vancouver. I’m passionate about the vibrant neighborhoods and the stunning natural surroundings that make this city so unique. From the serene marina patios to the bustling local markets, I love immersing myself in everything Vancouver offers. You'll often find me biking around Coal Harbour, exploring the art galleries, and indulging in the delicious offerings of marine-side restaurants. I adore the beach fun, bike routes, and Indigenous art that bring our community to life. Whether it's a journey through Downtown or a visit to the Shipyards in North Vancouver, I've got you. I'm also a regular at the Richmond Steveston marina fish market and know the best spots for cafés, bakeries, and fish specialties. Join me on an urban adventure or a nature escape—let’s make your Vancouver experience unforgettable!
