And now, here's something for...

by Krystynn

And now, here's something for the BUDGET CONSCIOUS traveler.... I picked up this tip when I was staying at the YMCA in Yangon (formerly known as Rangoon).

How To Get Rid of Bed Bugs...

Do you know that bed bugs HATE lavender oil? In Yangon some years ago, I was so afraid of being bitten by bed bugs at the local YMCA hostel, I tried using a few drops of lavender oil on the mattresses of our beds to scatter the bed bugs. It seems the little biters hate the smell and will flee!! It prevents bites... and lulled me to sleep. So, if you are staying in a hostel, dorm etc, try to bring a little bottle of lavender oil. I always get mine from The Body Shop costing not more than US$3.

You must be wondering why I brought this up. Well, many years ago, I stayed at a supposedly good five-star hotel in SanFran. They had bed bugs and God-knows what other insects on their bed - hidden to the naked eye! I suffered from itchy rashes for almost 2 years and saw tons of dermatologists trying to get healed. It was a very scary experience and I have since learnt to be well-armed and very prepared for ALL sorts of emergencies!

Sleep well and sweet dreams, ladies....

The Exciting NORTH AMERICAN Continent!

by Krystynn

"America Has The BEST National Parks In The World!"

The world's most beautiful national parks can be found right here in the United States.... beginning with the Yosemite National Park in California.

You are most welcome to browse through the travelogues that I've written so far.

And if you want an even broader perspective, you may also wish to check out the travelogues written by other VT members on North America. Have fun!

P.S. In case you're wondering, I'm also sloooowly updating the rest of my (remaining) pages... So, please hang in there OK?

I've also drawn up a list of tips under the "CULTURAL TIPS" section which you may find useful.

The topics include:

Had a great suggestion from a VT'r in the past re: vancouver hotel (b&b)

by milan2003

Hi there,

I received an excellent recommendation over 6 months ago (lost now!)about a central, beautiful, reasonable $ b&b in vancouver... I think it's called 'victoria house' or reasonable facimile there of, but can't find it on this site or google - if this place sounds familiar to any of you, I'd very much appreciate a proper title or website connection,

(any other suggestions for a place to stay btw april 19 & 21 would also be appreciated!)

Thank you very much,

M

The English Bay Inn? www.englishbayinn.com

Re: Had a great suggestion from a VT'r in the past re: vancouver hotel (b&b)

by Carmanah

Double check to see if the Victorian is truly a B&B. I know they're a budget boutique accommodation, but fail to remember if they actually serve a real breakfast.

Ditto the Kingston. That's another budget option, quasi European B&B style.

Other B&B's downtown are the West End Guest House, Barclay House, and O'Canada House, but they're not exactly budget accommodations.

Visiting Vancouver's Urban Farms

by mchoy

Hello, I'm visiting Vancouver for the next three weeks to study urban agriculture on my own and visit the local farms and community agriculture. Any ideas for best sites to visit?

Also, any recommendations on hostels on a budget? Anyone visiting the city or a resident of the city who would like to give a day tour of the waterfront/cool places in Vancouver?

Thank you so much for your help!

Re: Visiting Vancouver's Urban Farms

by jethanand

I am NOT a local, just recently visited Vancouver for one day,

THAT said, a suggestion if I may, at Granville Island there is a very popular, large indoors vegetable market and some stalls are owned by farm owners, they might be able to give you some pointers,

definetely visit the market, the co-op also will have some pointers for you.

Hi there! The Fraser Valley (starting 30 km east of Vancouver) is the agricultural area of this region. There are numerous small farms, wineries, and cheese making operations spread all around the area that supply food to the larger community. I'm a hobby photographer that spends a fair amount of time in the Valley and find it very beautifull. Email me if you want more details of specific places. Cheers!

Visit UBC Farm = http://www.landfood.ubc.ca/ubcfarm/ - the only working farm in Vancouver, proper.

You may also be interested in the Circle Farm Tours out in the Fraser Valley. These are self-driving tours of all the working farms in our suburbs:

You need to beware of BED BUGS when visiting hostels. Check the vancouver bed bug registry: http://bedbugregistry.com/metro/van

The Cambie Hostel is cheap, and there's a large bar underneath it with picnic tables if you want to get faced on cheap beer. Same Sun Backpack lodge on granville st is good, or the large Jericho Beach Hostel which has organized party buses to downtown.

Urban farms?? lol what. Maybe you mean marijuana grow ops. All I know of is urban farmers markets (grown in the valley, sold in the city) like Granville Island or the small city open gardening lots like on Davie St and in the DTES where you can rent a small gardening space.

Travel Tips for Vancouver

HORSE DRAWN TOURS @ STANLEY PARK

by balhannah

I was very disappointed that we ran out of time to take the Horse Drawn tour of Stanley park.
The cost of this tour was included in our Vancouver card, which we had purchased for sightseeing in Vancouver.

We saw it, and passed it in Stanley park, what a great way to get around and to see the sites, clip, clop, clip, clop, a nice slow pace, and ideal for taking many photo's without any glare, as it is open air.

A guide fully narrates the tour which passes byDeadman's Island, Vancouver's Harbour, Lions Gate Bridge, a Coastal Red Cedar Forest, and includes stops at the Totem Poles, the Girl in a Wet Suit Statue, the S.S. Empress of Japan Figurehead, and the Rose Garden.

Tickets available only at the Horse-Drawn Tour Kiosk in Stanley Park.

Only seating for 20 people.
Departs every 30mins.
Cost in 2010......$28.99 Adults....$15.99 .....children [3-12yr old] http://www.stanleyparktours.com/

Explore Nature

by duanestorey

Stanley park, located near downtown Vancouver, is a great plcae to spend the day relaxing. If you like biking, rollerblading, or just walking through nature, then head down to Stanley Park. Hanging out with some friends in Stanley Park.

Stanley Park is the wooded area to the left in the picture. If you look closely, you can see the Lion's Gate suspension bridge as well.

Industrious Vancouver Island?

by Amareyui

I was on my way back to Vancouver from Alaska, and the ship sailed by Vancouver Island on the final day. I was suprised to find out how developed, relative speaking, the northern part of Vancouver Island was. I always imagined that area was nothing but trees and mountains, but the truth was many small islands were inhibited, and factories could be found in other bigger islands.
