Suitcases – check… Passports – check… Mobile phone – check… Laptop – check… Guide Books – check
Driving Licence – err…
In spite of planning every stage of this holiday to within an inch of its life, we overlooked packing my Driving Licence. So, after landing at Vancouver International Airport with the plan of picking-up our pre-booked hire-car to drive the seventy-or-so miles to Whistler, it wasn’t to be. Apparently, out here, even if you have already pre-booked and supplied all the Driving Licence details in advance, they still need to see the physical version. As a ‘Plan B’, we offered a scanned/emailed version (thanks David), but that wasn’t acceptable either!
Time for some quick thinking, so, we’re slumming it at the rather swanky Fairmont Hotel based right inside the Airport for the rest of the holiday, whilst we look at plans of how we enjoy Vancouver and the surrounding area – second time around!

“Best laid plans…” ehh?!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
