We flew to London and spent an exceptionally long lay-over in Hyde Park in the scorching heat.
In the afternoon we walked across Granville Bridge—attempted to soak up the breathtaking, overwhelming, holycrapisthisreal views on each side—to Kitsilano. There we bought and devoured a garlicky pizza, read our books on the beach and sunned ourselves. We thought we could really get used to this and grinned like fools. Jet lag kicked our bums into bed early again but we were too sleepy to fight it.
Coming up: Whistler, lakes, beers and beautiful mountains.
