Around Town + Hot Chocolate Festival
While we never got as far as the aquarium, we did end up having our first hot chocolate at The Diva at the Met (inside the Metropolitan Hotel), shopping at Oak + Fort and other Gastown boutiques, having ramen in Chinatown, drinking hot chocolate at Bel Cafe, and visiting the Vancouver Art Gallery (also for free with my pass). Not too shabby for a rainy day, n'est-ce pas?

Forgive the weird quality of the shot below (I almost have no eyes!), shooting indoors is definitely not our forte. Nevertheless, trying to find a decent place to shoot on a rainy day turned out to be an adventure in itself-- we ended up heading into a random hallway of the SFU Woodwards building, which I've only visited about twice now.
Delicious shoyu and miso ramen at Taishoken Ramen on Abbott Street.
And last but not least, our wonderful Mango-cream-topped hot chocolate at Bel Cafe located within the Rosewood Hotel Georgia.

While I am grateful that I can spend an entire day having great conversations and discovering new places with friends, I am really looking forward to the springtime when I can go outside more (and spend less money). In the near future, I'm planning on hiking the Chief in Squamish and other outdoor-ish activities. I'm becoming such a nature freak lately...
What do you look forward to doing this upcoming spring?
