Kat’s Adventure: Vancouver – Life’s a Beach

I’ve missed this week’s log, because I wasn’t really sure what to post. I have FINALLY made it to Vancouver and that’s where I drew the line on doing all the tourist-y stuff. I’ve been on the go for more than a month now and it’s just become really tiring. People are lovely and keep suggesting all the things I could do, but I need a break and I have several months here, so there really is no rush on seeing it all.

So, instead I explored the area, tried to find restaurants I could see myself going to on a regular basis and I even found a room with two UBC college students I could rent for July and August! You simply cannot imagine how happy I am about being able to unpack my suitcase and just leave my stuff lying around for a while. It has been so much fun seeing all these different cities but I am more than ready to settle down.

One of the things I love the most about Vancouver is how it has everything you could possibly need. The mountains are glorious, the trees are lush and deeply green and the ocean creates lovely beaches all around the city. And that’s it, Vancouver is a really big city. There is loads to do in the bustling downtown area, but at the same time you can go adventuring in the nature as well.

I have no idea if any of you know my grand master plan for my stay here, but it basically includes me wanting to find all the filming locations and getting to know some of the crew members (see how I didn’t say cast? I am trying to be professional over here). If you constantly show up in the same area and meet the same people, you inevitably end up talking at some point. My hope is that I can somehow find a way into the film and TV industry here in Vancouver and possibly return with a work visa in the next year. So far I have found two filming sets (which is really rather easy), but getting a word out is a different story.

Anyway, here are some impressions of Vancouver so far!

How have you all been? Let’s talk!

  1. Omg so pretty!! That picture of the steering wheel is cool, and I love the color of the water. Also, quick q, if you don’t mind? I was wondering how you get the multiple images to show up in reader for your post, rather than just the one off to the left side. Thanks! (That sounded really confusing and probably doesn’t make sense…)

  2. I hope you can find the set of Supernatural. If you get a job there, I’d have a very good reason to come out and see Sam and Dean–I mean see you! See you! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    My week’s been good, for the most part. Usual stuff. Made a decision about writing and stuff, did a lot of stuff at work Saw a chiropractor for back issues, got a follow-up appointment on Tuesday. Oh, and less than a fortnight till Boston. I’m super excited.


  3. I’m so happy you are having such a great time in Vancouver, Kat. The city seems lovely from all of these pictures, both big city and nature,, beach and mountains, it really has everything you could ever need ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you about meeting crew members and finding your way in. I’m sure you will โค

  4. Vancouver looks like a dream. You’re making me consider moving there myself haha. Take the time to relax and enjoy yourself, you have plenty of time to see the sights and being there for the remainder of the summer gives you plenty of time to fully immerse yourself there.

    I knew you were interested in finding the filming locations but I had no idea about your gran plan. That sounds so exciting and I’m sure you’ll find an in soon enough. Which part of the industry are you looking to go into?

    • Vancouver is definitely one of my favourite places on this planet! And I need that rest. I have developed a sort of cough and I cannot afford to get sick, so I am just chilling out hahaha

      And I’d like to work as a TV producer/showrunner or as a casting agent. Those are not really jobs you start as though, so I am fine with being just a runner/PA or even an extra, but right now I can’t do anything because I am not on a work visa.

      • Oh no. I’ll send a protective bubble to you to make sure you don’t get sick! ๐Ÿ˜›

        Once you get your foot in the door you can work your way from there. I’ve always been interested in the marketing/publicity aspect of the entertainment and sporting industry but finding the opportunities around my way prove to be very difficult. Good luck with the hunt and hopefully you’ll find someone to take you on next year.

      • Thanks but it’s already too late *sobs* I am sniffling and coughing and I just hope that the fresh ocean air will cure me. I hate this so much.

        Marketing can be soo much fun, but it’s such a demanding job. I used to work in film distribution and I did quite a lot of marketing and PR. I hope you’ll find an in :D!!!

    • I am glad it made you even more excited for Vancouver. It’s a great city! Maybe you’ll even run into a couple TV stars next week. There’s a lot being filmed right now.
