Vancouver – arriving Cruise Ship

Early morning on the Lions Gate Bridge watching cruise ship arriving to Vancouver. Passing under beautiful Lions Gate with Stanley Park just stone throw away ( … do not test )

There is many reasons why I love my chosen city but this illustrates few. Last year I went of the cruise from Vancouver to Alaska , I was very proud to tell people beside me that I am from here. I was born in Poland and I always will be Polish but I am from here for more than half of my life and very happy of the choice that I have made.


I told my story before … Canadian Council in Athens asked me

-Where would you like to go ?


-Why ?

-Hmm … it’s the warmest

-Why not Winnipeg , they have Polish schools , churches , shops .. everything Polish

-I would rather Vancouver ,Sir. If I liked all that Polish stuff , I would have stayed there

-:)))))))) … OK will try to send you to Vancouver


…. And so they did
