Today was awesome! We spent the day surrounded by beautiful mountains!

Destination— Canmore and Banff

Today we took a leisurely drive to Banff via Canmore.

We are so happy we chose this area as the destination for our Anniversary,

We stopped in Canmore for a picnic lunch. We didn’t stay there too long because we will be back there tomorrow night to spend the night.

Then it was on the Banff. Banff Avenue is so beautiful. We walked the streets  browsing the shops and enjoyed a beavertail.

We checked in to the Buffalo Mountain Lodge nestled in the mountains

IMG_1647 IMG_1646 IMG_1615 IMG_1644 IMG_1662We decided to do a suppertime hike to Sulfur Mountain. It was a 5.5km hike but I found it brutal. I guess I need to get in better shape. We made it to the top and the view is so amazing. Well worth the walk up! The gondola ride was the best way down after the hike.

It was after 10 by the time we got back to our hotel in the mountains so we went for a quick relax in the hot tub ( had it all to ourselves) and then back to our room for a cozy fire before bed.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
