Miniature landscapes at Vancouver Outdoor Adventure and Travel Show

Miniature landscapes exposed at Ashenzi booth at Vacouver Outdoor Adventure and Travel Show

Usually, I try not to make promises I can't keep.  One of my favourite proverbs is " Just keeping your word is not enough, make sure you don't delay your promise". So, as I promised in my previous article Vancouver Outdoor Adventure and Travel Show , I come back to you with details.

Saturday was a pleasant day in which we have reached almost all of our targets to "The Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show".

First of all, I want to tell you that the Ashenzi booth was decorated with both miniature landscapes we made for them. They enjoyed the arrangements so much and decided to rent both for the show.

Furthermore, without being modest, you can see by yourself that our miniature gardens given a special look to their stand ;-)

On arrival, we were wandering the intense and crowded alley of the show, and we located where the Terry Grant's appearance to the show will be.

It was an achievement, because we promised to the kids that we will see Terry Grant's reactions in a "real show" and we will obtain his autograph.

Walking through the "Adventure and Travel Pavilion", we noticed the touristic offers from all over the world.

Visiting the stands, we were joining the adventure of fishing to West Coast, trekking in Himalaya's wilderness, cruising and diving on Vancouver Island.

Also, we were flirting with the idea of participating in rafting expeditions on Fraser River or hiking expeditions in Uganda, the pearl of Africa ;-)
