This year, I have been traveling quite a bit for business with locations including Israel, Istanbul, Vienna, Brno, Kharkiv and, recently, Vancouver.
A lot of business travel is time spent in meetings, often starting early and running late into dinner and beyond. Occasionally, there is time to break away from the meetings and see something of the city that you’re visiting. In Vancouver, during a great OpenStack Summit, I had a couple of opportunities, as there were some great things to do close to the convention center; the convention center is an amazing facility and has wonderful architecture.
The first thing that I got to do is go on a seaplane ride, which provided a great view of Vancouver, the bay and surrounding area.
The view here is of the city of Vancouver, Stanley Park and Coal Harbour, as seen from the seaplane. If you look carefully in the middle left-hand side of the image, you see the grass roof of the Vancouver Convention Centre, where OpenStack Summit was held.
More images to come soon! Have a wonderful day!
