Exploring Vancouver Canada

Moving from Europe to Canada
When I was young, I enjoyed geography — I was always researched countries, flags, history and was able to find any country on the map almost instantly. Love for travel stayed with me since then. I had always dreamed of traveling the world, yet being from a small town in Croatia, it seemed impossible. Thankfully I chose an awesome career path — DJ — which gave me the opportunity to travel and explore many cities and countries. In this blog I will be writing my opinions and experiences as I discover different cities and countries, who knows — maybe you might get some useful tips from my travels, like what to see, eat, where to party and how to stay safe will abroad. So stay tuned, enjoy, listen to some of my music and enjoy! For my first post I will start with my longest trip that lasted for 3 years – Canada!
Discover: Vancouver, Canada
I visited Canada in 2009 and stayed there until late 2012. It was a very long time ago, but I still remember it like it was yesterday. I flew from Venice to Amsterdam and then had a very long flight to Vancouver, Canada. Now, back then I couldn’t decide should I move to Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver or Edmonton. After doing some research I realised that Vancouver was the best option for me. It had certain things I was looking for — the ocean, epic mountains, snow, nice summer and was a very advanced multicultural city.
Arriving in Vancouver
Exploring Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive is an awesome place, it is a bit of a hipster type of area that has lots of coffee shops, great people, cool stores, superb bars & restaurants and is very safe.

Commercial Drive Overview
The Drive is very safe, in 2 years I never got mugged or attacked or anything like that. Its a pretty busy place, and police supervision is constant. During summer you will find an Italian festival here, the entire street gets closed and you can find lots of street vendors selling pizza, cheese and other Italian products, its an amazing event. Halloween on the Drive is special as well as there is a ghost walk where you go through the streets that are totally decorated, its really cool and be sure to wear a mask. So you know, there is no need to go too far south or too far north as the main and best part of the Drive spreads from East Broadway St to Venables St, for maximum safety and pleasure, stay anywhere between those streets. Just a friendly reminder — the more south you go or more east you go, the weirder it gets. 🙂
