Food In Seattle:
Seattle has similar food contents to Portland. We ended up getting two of my classic go-to meals. These places were both within a five-minute walking distance of our CouchSurfing place.
After only spending a night in Seattle, we made our way to Vancouver, BC. There, we stayed at Samesun Backpackers Hostel
It is located on Granville St. in downtown Vancouver, close to many amazing pubs, food, and activities. That first night we met up with a friend of mine who I met at a party hostel in Bolivia. He took us bar hopping and gave us a little mini walking tour of the city.
Bar Hopping Itinerary:
Mahony & Sons
The Library Square Public House
Samesun Backpackers Hostel Bar
The next day we were very hungover, which was fine because it was pouring rain and not ideal exploring weather. We did, however, treat ourselves to a delicious and inexpensive meal at the Basil Pasta Bar. All the plates of pasta are $9 CAD which is really affordable. I devoured a Mediterranian Penne which was a penne pasta with pesto sauce, artichokes, asparagus, tomatoes, spinach, and topped with a generous portion of goat cheese. For all those goat cheese sluts out there, this pasta dish is for you.
Vancouver BC ----------------> Banff, Alberta
The road trip to Banff was extremely long, it took us nearly 10 hours of driving to get there but boy was it beautiful.
