The Vancouver Folk Music Festival is on July 15-17 located on Jericho Beach Park. If your in the city and like to have a good time you should defiantly attend. Here are our reasons why.

None the less, our week there was off the charts. We rented ourselves a great little condo to share, drank way too much cheap wine, made some great meals, sunbathed on the beach, laughed our asses off, and danced to some great music in the most classy venues we think any junglist will ever see.
One thing about the festival I didn’t like though was the trashiness of the English people.

We choose Amsterdam to set us off on the right foot.
Finally on a warm summer day in August of 2009 we got off a train in Amsterdam and like it was out of some teenage summer movie we saw our friends down at the end of the walkway with the same travel tired weary smiles as us.
Before I get to the Jungle Worship… my first order of business is to announce our Liverpool pictures are uploaded to Flickr.
