Upon leaving Vancouver disappointed, Ben Collins declares his intentions to give this city a second chance

Just as with the Rockies, I had dreamed of coming to Vancouver for a lifetime but after nearly four weeks hitchhiking over 5,000km I arrived feeling both mentally and physically exhausted...

...During my stay here I spent two nights CouchSurfing, three nights at a hostel and did little more than eat, sleep and feel sorry for myself.

As such, I leave Vancouver this morning feeling as if I were never here and given the high hopes I had for this place there is only one thing I can do - that is to allow a second chance.

Goodbye for now Vancouver.

I will be back.
