The first visit of Vancouver – Yaletown, Gastown, and Robson St.

Arrived at here, Vancouver in the morning of 27th. The temperature was -1degreeC.  Checked in The Four Seasons Hotel at first. Actually, before checking in I got on the sky train from Airport station to the Vancouver city centre. During moving I felt like I’m in some rural areas because I could see a lot of logs floating on a canal and mountains covered with snow.
Anyways today’s purposes were to visit the studying abroad center in Yaletown and the business college in Gastown. After first appointment I took lunch at RODNEY’S.

Plan to go to Vancouver using airbnb

this entry is written by Japanese and English.

2月下旬にバンクーバーに行く予定を立てているのだが、aribnbを使って最低1泊するというイベントをプランの中に入れている。サービス自体は日本でも話題になっていて、色々と被害レポートもググれば出てくるわけだけど、まだまだ身の回りや知り合い、ソーシャルメディアで繋がっている人達からも利用してみたという声は聞かないので、ここは自分で使ってみてレポートするのも面白いかなと思っている次第。サイトを見ていると、ホストについてのコメントもたくさんあり、出来ればバンクーバーの日常生活が垣間見えるような環境で、フレンドリーなホストにめぐり合いたいものだ。ということで、只今必ず聞かれるであろう話題を英語で説明できるように、準備を進めている。地震や原発の話はおそらく出るだろうし。

I’m planning to go to Vancouver in the end of February and going to stay in an apartment or guesthouse where are appeared on airbnb at least a night. It’s a kind of challenging event for me. As you know airbnb has already become popular service in Japan as well as the world, but there are no user around me. so I decided I become the first user. Now I’m getting ready for small talks when I meet a host. In all likelihood they ask me about that huge earthquake and radiation problem.
