After a 6 month hiatus from work, Children's Entertainer Marnie Grey shares her love of returning back to Vancouver's many trails.
We stepped outside of YVR Airport and my husband, Kevin, said, “Smell how fresh the air is...”
We had just spent a month in Los Angeles, followed by five amazing months, in one of the most peaceful - yet chaotic countries in the world– India. After six months of dust, dirt and traffic, inclusive of a hospital stay for food poisoning, I could relate to my husband's statement 100%. The air outside of YVR, even next to the taxi stand, smelled GOOD!
India was incredible. I will forever be grateful for our travels, but in that moment, my first breath of Vancouver air, not only filled my lungs, but it felt like it rejuvenated my very being. I was home, at last.
During our first week back, everyday felt like a new adventure, like I was a tourist in my own city. Our dog Zorro was incredibly happy to have us home.
