Strathcona is a neighborhood in Vancouver. As the oldest residential neighborhood it has a lot of character. The streets are packed with charming old houses, many of which have eccentric decorations. They feel very lived in and personalized and I love that. It’s nothing like stereotypical suburbia where every house looks the same and the closest thing to personality is a pink sprinkler.

  1. Cool! I especially love The Wilder Snail with the little red doors.

    Thanks Tamara. I love how perfect that tree looks as well.

    The Wilder Snail is a cozy little cafe with a few shelves of less mainstream groceries. It reminds me of the Mondragon Bookstore & Coffeehouse in Winnipeg. It’s hard to remind me of things in Winnipeg since I’ve only spent about 24 hours there.

    The coffee was pretty decent too :)

    Hi Rex, thanks.

    If you right click and ‘copy link address’ then paste it into your feed reader it should work. I don’t get an error anyway. You could try pasting the base URL
    I think most feed readers can find the feed if it’s in a typical place, which mine is.
