Are you tired of the freezing cold that winter brings? Or do you revel in the magic of a winter paradise? If the answer to one or both questions is “yes”, then hop in your car and head to the Canadian border city of Niagara Falls. Whether you go for a quick getaway for the day, or spend the weekend, Niagara Falls has just as much, if not more, to offer in the winter months than it does in the summer months.
What better place to spend a weekend than in Banff, Alberta, Canada? It was literally heaven on earth and two days just wasn’t enough time! Since this was all I had, I was determined to experience as much as I could. I arranged a 12 hour tour with Brewster Sightseeing Tours, so that I didn’t waste any time determining where to go and what to see. The price was reasonable and I was guaranteed to experience the best that Banff and the Rocky Mountains had to offer.
What exactly is it that keeps pulling at my heart-strings and has me returning to this beautiful little town in Western Ontario, over and over again?
Does anybody else get as excited about a road trip other than me? It is one of my favourite things to do and boy did I just complete my best one yet!
The Canadian Rocky Mountains has always been near the top of my bucketlist, and I had recently booked an Alaskan cruise out of Vancouver, British Columbia. For weeks I debated whether or not to combine Alaska and the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and cross two top destinations off my bucketlist. After much debating, I decided what the hell, let’s do this! Keeping in mind that I had never done a solo road trip of this magnitude before, I soon began to panic. I kept asking myself, what the hell are you doing??? It turned out that my desire to see the Rocky Mountains far surpassed my fears, so the research began. After all, it is the fear of the unknown that gets us everytime.
