Meet Duni | Our Vancouver Curator

Tell us about yourself

Hi, my name is Edurne (@pinguino.travels + @dunitah) and I am originally from Spain, from the Basque region (hence, my uncommon Basque name, which means snow!) but I have lived in Vancouver, Canada since 2013. Before moving to Vancouver I studied in Toronto for 6 months and after graduating from university, I decided to explore the west coast. Fast forward, I am still in Vancouver!

What is your favorite coffee shop where you live? 

If I had to pick just one coffee shop in Vancouver, it would have to be Breka Bakery. They have the most delicious cheesecake, and a white mocha that is just perfect. Plus, it is open 24 hours! 

What is your favorite bar where you live? 

Score on Davie St. Patio for the sunny days, inside for rainy days. The atmosphere is great! And they have a great selection of both drinks and food. It is also very close to clubs, just in case you get an instant party rush.

What is your favorite restaurant where you live? 

At the moment, Jinya Ramen is my favourite. When the weather is cold outside, all I need is a good bowl of ramen to cheer me up! They also offer a few other small plates that are delicious.

If you could travel to any US city right now where would it be? 

New York! Believe it or not, I still have not visited this city.

If you could travel to any country right now where would it be? 

Iceland, without a doubt. I am in love with their nature, and the idea of going on a road trip visiting all those stunning landscapes.
