Travels with Loadstone

Celebration of Light Fireworks

Love a front row seat to Vancouver's Celebration of Light, so I marked this rock using #LoadstoneGPSForTheBlind. Since 2010, I've watched the show from this very spot.

2010 Winter Olympics

Visited all the pavilions during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver using #LoadstoneGPSForTheBlind and found my way to ziplining over the city.

Vancouver Parks

Launched the Vancouver Parks Database in #LoadstoneGPSForTheBlind and spent a sunny day exploring green spaces along the waterfront.

Canada Place

Canada Place in downtown Vancouver used to be a confusing jumble of businesses until I used #LoadstoneGPSForTheBlind to mark specific points that helped me get oriented.
