These walks are fantastic.
Not only do you learn about some of the oldest communities in Vancouver; you get to meet the past in a wonderful 2-3 hour walk while learning about the people that first called the area "home", as well as discovering the spiritual side. You'll learn about the types of dwellings that first stood on the land, and hear of the history involved that made Vancouver a city people were drawn to.
If you are interested, please book immediately as there is a limit of space available. These walks are fantastic for your morning exercise regime. Ensure you wear comfy shoes, bring a bottle of water to keep you hydrated, a snack or two.. and note, there are no washroom breaks, so be prepared. Come rain/shine.
To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org - you can pay the fee at the Walk or email transfer it to James.
Hope to see you there!
Sincerely, your friend as always,
PS: James Johnstone also hosts other History Walks (see the BlogSpot link), which I recommend. He's fantastic at bringing the stories of the heritage areas alive. Check it out and book quickly.
