Contrary to popular belief, there is not one, but two Vancouvers. Both named after the British (of course) Sea Capitan, George Vancouver. At the end of the 18th Century Georgie-boy had discovered so much, he had two major cities named after him in honour. The “original” Vancouver in Washington (State – not DC) is 60 years older than Vancouver #2 (BC) and for most of his life has been overshadowed by his bro up north. Of course as in any healthy sibling relationship, there is rivalry between Little V and Big V.
While I haven’t trecked to the “original” Little V (yet) here are some highlights of my time in The Big V.
