Winter is coming, but the rain is already here!
It is unavoidable. If you live in Vancouver you will know that rain is part of our lives and we must learn to live with it. The rain fills us with energy and purifies the environment, helping to feed all the green areas that exist in the city.
The good thing about all this is that in Vancouver the rain is not synonymous with staying home sleeping or watching Netflix (it is also an option), since there are activities and panoramas for all tastes which will make us more entertaining our rainy afternoons.
Here we give you 10 things to do on a rainy day. Are you ready? 🙂
