It’s Monday morning again and another great weekend in Canada has passed. There was so much going on, the most important event being St. Patrick’s Day! More about that in the St. Patrick’s Day and Seattle After party review blog post.
For this weekend I did something a little different to everyone in Vancouver. I decided to take the Greyhound bus to Edmonton for the weekend where I also had a great time. This was my first time using Greyhound and it was an interesting experience.
It’s a very long trip to take with the bus, but if you’re on a student budget then it is definitely worth it. They have reclining chairs so that you can sleep during the trip; I was actually lucky the bus wasn’t full so the seat next to mine was unoccupied. Additionally, the bus drivers are really considerate and always asked us if we wanted to keep going with the trip or if we wanted to take the full length break.
Taking the bus is also a great way to see the beautiful scenery and nature of Canada. I was surprised to see how much snow is still lying around once you are out of Vancouver. We even had to turn around and change our route on our way to Edmonton because there had been an avalanche in the mountains and the road had been blocked.
