Fupper is Simon Hughes, a musician from London currently living in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The latest Fupper release is “Foreign Bodies”; it is his 18th album in 20 years. The music sounds like an electronic Moondog with luscious guitars, harmonized vocals, spoken word, lyrics of streaming consciousness, found sounds and field recordings.
“I have given a list of some of my favorite Vancouver haunts. Besides these, drink in the nature and get wet.”
The ultimate outdoor swimming pool of all pools! Open only during the summer season, Kits pool is a turquoise glory, spanning 137 metres wide! (it is Canada's longest pool) It also has a spectacular view of the mountains, beach, and the skyline.
I struggle with eating out in Vancouver, generally I prefer the burrito style places like Bandidas Taqueria on Commercial drive or Budgies Burritos on Kingsway, because they can keep it mellow and hassle free. Pronto is a new one, it has a great Italian coffee bar from the 60’s vibe.
This nice little New Orleans inspired bistro serves all things creole and cajun. Cool drinks and hot food, accompanied by authentic live Louisiana Jazz, makes this the perfect spot for a dinner out. For something with a bite to it I can recommend the mussels Lafayette.
This theatre has a real genuine feeling that is hard to come across in Sweden nowadays. Shows a selection of the best and most current titles. With a huge bucket of popcorn, and the discount for all on Tuesdays, this place really helps to brighten up the dullest day of the week.
The place to go for a refreshing morning walk. Here you can really see and feel the magic that occurs when the mountains, the city and the ocean meet. Close by is also the Museum of Vancouver which, among other things, holds some colorful displays of the local 1960s hippie movement.
