Try to have a good vacation. So, plan to learn skiing this winter, go out to do sports. Swimming, tennis, skiing, and all other activities.
Julia went out the Lonsdale Quay on Dec. 29 to catch a free shuttle to mountain Seymour, but she missed the shuttle. She had great time to enjoy beauty of city of Vancouver. She took the skytrain, seabus, and walked in the city.
Then, she decided to learn something about real estate, money, and Julia likes the teaching from Canadian business guru Kevin O'Leary.
Here are the list of videos watched:
