  3. 3. Why Vancouver?<br />As some of you might know, I (Barry) will go to Vancouver for a couple of months. <br />While I‘m there I have enough time to set up some interesting activities in and around the city of Vancouver for our studytrip. I have never been to Vancouver before, but I‘m sure it‘s a wonderful city and with a little effort it should be possible to arrange a awesome studytrip for all of us! Some opinions about Vancouver:<br />"You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well...Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling."– The New York Times<br />"Vancouver is a city unlike any other. Wherever I look, I see water or mountains -- or both. And everyone looks so healthy."– The Daily Telegraph (UK) <br />"Vancouver is one of North America’s most under-rated tourist destinations. It is a modern, travel-friendly city with a unique mix of cultures. The relatively mild Pacific Northwest climate and an energetic restaurant and nightlife scene are other features that make this such an attractive city."– LowFares.com<br />
  4. 4. What to do in Vancouver (as a tourist)<br />Visit the Olympic City of the Winter Games 2010We can go to Whistler and see if there is any snow left to go skiing or snowboarding.
