We love travelling ourselves!
We are past members of the Vancouver Board of Trade and have both served on the Board of Directors of the Sales and Marketing Executives International in Vancouver. We are semi-retired - we continue to sell advertising for Travel 50 and Beyond magazine. Gardening and long walks around Vancouver are our favorite past times. We also enjoy cooking, fine wines and Belgian beer! Our travels have taken us to Europe several times and we enjoy sharing our experiences. We built our rental suite anticipating a need for people visiting patients in the nearby long-stay hospital, but we quickly found that it was in demand by tourists and business people because of our central location.
