Marta, Ashley, and I headed to Vancouver to see Madonna. I had never seen Madonna before so this was definitely one of those things I always wanted to do!
We took the train to Vancouver Thursday morning. I would definitely recommend taking the train. It took about 3 hours to get there and the train was nice. Plus there lots of room on the train to stretch out. But 3 hours is my limit on a train though.
We stayed in the Yaletown district of Vancouver thanks to Marta's folks timeshare. We got there about lunch time and ate at Glowbal.
The food was really good here. I would definitely recommended it.
Then we went in search of a treat. We found Chocolatl and bought truffles.
Ashley ate her Dulce de leche before I could take a picture! My lavender truffle is on the left. On Ashley's plate the carmel truffle on the top and the cinnamon truffle underneth. Some yummy truffles.
Then we went back to the hotel to rest and get ready for the evening. First, me and Ashley.Me and Marta.
And since everyone and their mother in Vancouver recommended Milestones for dinner we went. We decided that the hotels must of gotten some kickback from Milestones since all the hotel employees recommended it. I wasn't impressed with the place.
And now the reason we were in Vancouver-Madonna! Here's the stage from our seats:
We were pretty far up but still had a great view. She sang a lot of her older stuff-You Loved Me, Like A Virgin, Hung Up, Ray of Light-but she did them slightly differently than the orginal. I would have preferred the orginal versions but hey, it's Madonna. She put on a very visually pleasing show. I was incredibly glad to see her finally after all these years.
Overall we had a great time. I loved our little getaway. I can't wait for Tai to get his passport so we can go to Vancouver!
