After living in Vancouver for three years, I finally decided to take the plunge – and write a guidebook about my own city for Frommer’s. It’s really a daunting task. You get a few hundred pages to sum up a whole metropolis – restaurants and hotels and museums, touristy must-sees and out-of-the-way spots that only locals know about. Whatever anyone says, guidebook writing is ultimately a very subjective undertaking. I’ve presented the Vancouver I’d want to experience: Not the glitzy, Pacific jewel, but the gritty port city that’s still searching for its identity as a world capital. I also contributed most of the photography.
