Crossing the US Border

After buying all kinds of equipment needed for my trip in a Thriftshop and a few other stores I park my car near the airport. I’m waiting for Sven, a friend of a friend from Germany, who is coming to Canada for a few weeks. While waiting I go to a casino nearby to watch the semi finals of the soccer world cup. Germany against the host Brazil! I’m expecting a really exciting game. But when I arrive I can’t believe my eyes…5:0 for Germany. I missed the bigger part of the first half. I sit down to watch the rest of the game and order a beer. The game ends with Germany winning 7:1. The trophy might be closer then ever before.

Buying a camper truck in Vancouver

I meet Herb at the entrance to Granville Station in Vancouver. Together we’re driving down south to a small suburb called Ladner, which is located on the banks of the Fraser River. Herb is living here in a nice area surrounded by farmland and little canals. On workdays he drives up to Downtown Vancouver to pursue his work as a biologist. Because space is quite limited in Vancouver, a lot of people live in the surrounding suburbs. I’m on this trip with him because Herb is selling his camper truck, which he has used for about twenty years on numerous adventures throughout British Columbia and the USA.
