As a travel writer since 2006, Chloë Ernst has skied on the slopes overlooking her Vancouver home, retraced the Gold Rush in the Cariboo region, and caught waves on the Pacific coast. She loves to do the things she writes about, whether its sampling steamed dumplings in Chinatown, biking the Stanley Park Seawall, or eating raw sea urchin in Haida Gwaii. She's thankful that Vancouver and British Columbia keep adding things to her to-do list, like skiing in Revelstoke, soaking in backwoods hot springs in Harrison, or dining at any of Vancouver's latest restaurants.

By Chloë Ernst:

When I moved to Vancouver in 2006, I soon met a network of long-time locals who gave me inside tips on where to find the best in Vancouver -- whether it was a $6 sushi special or deli that makes sandwiches from donuts.

I try to see the city with a balance of a local's insight and a visitor's curiosity. In short, I'm always looking to find something new or quirky to share. If you have a tip, please get in touch with me.
