We didn't realise that flying from Seattle to Vancouver wasn't really necessary. We just assumed that if you go to another country you need to go in a plane (that is always the case in Australia). Apparently we could have gone on the train which would have been more scenic. Oh well. We flew in a Dash-8 Series 300 which the boy was excited about.
We stayed over night in Vancouver and tomorrow we get on the Rocky Mountaineer for two days.
By the way, it rained the whole time in Vancouver while we were there.
