OMG. Can we talk about how epic Vancouver is?? I'm OBSESSED. We headed north to BC for Thomas' birthday last month and literally ate our way through the city. So as usual - Gaby's Guide to Vancouver is coming your way! And if you want to hop on over to instagram, check out my IGTV video recap of the trip!! Promise it'll be worth it 🙂
Where to Eat / Drink
Vij's - easily the best Indian food I've ever had in my life
Revolver - our go to for early morning coffee and pastries!
Miku - some of the best sushi in Vancouver!
Bella Gelateria - gelato. Get ready for a line and be patient, it's worth it.
