Passport Alert: I'm Going to Vancouver
Next week I'll be flying off to the Seattle of Canada, a place where many a Hollywood producer likes to take advantage of alluring tax breaks -- Vancouver, BC.
My generous hosts at Destination BC are treating me to a four-day experience that includes two nights at the Opus Hotel and two nights on Whistler Mountain at the luxurious Nita Lake Lodge. A shout-out also goes out to Desigual for hooking me up with a much-needed winter coat (I left mine in New York) and the good folks at iHome for supplying the hot pair of headphones I'll be needing for the inevitable plane and bus rides during my wintry adventure with other travel journalists (my feature will be seen in an upcoming issue of Bello Mag).
It's safe to say you won't be seeing any photos of me zipping down the mountain on a snowboard -- my feet haven't touched a ski since the late 80s. Right now, the plan is to enjoy some downtown nightlife, take a snowshoe hike, and absorb as much culture and scenery as I can (translation: eat some good grub).
Canada, gird your loins.
