    I've lived in Vancouver, its pretty nice up there. There are lots of places to visit/see, can't think of any off the top of my head though frown.gif

    I worked in UBC for 2 weeks a few years back. There are a few apt blocks on campus so might be worth a bit of investigation otherwise places like kitsalano are close to UBC and nice to live in.

    if you're gonna travel around victoria on vancouver island is really nice, make sure you go to Whistler (is beautiful), Stanley Park in Vancouver is good to stroll around and if you can try and get to The Okanagan, its a desert in Canada (who'd a thunk it) though it is a bit of a trek.

    hope this helps, i spent 5 months in vancouver and loved it.
