Even though we had a long weekend because of the Canada Day on Monday, time went by really fast. Lets take a look at what we did this weekend.
Me and my fellow students Barbara and Franzi went to the Rocky Mountains this weekend. We did a 4 day tour, so it started on Friday and we came back to Vancouver on Monday. The first day was more or less just the drive to our first hotel in Revelstoke. But the program on Saturday was really eventful. We went to the Emerald Lake, to Lake Louise and to Lake Moraine. I’ve never seen such a blue, clear water. However, Lake Peyto (which we’ve visited on Sunday) was my highlight of all the lakes we saw. When you have a look at the picture, you will understand why.
We also explored Banff and Jasper during our trip. Cute little towns surrounded by breathtaking mountains. In Banff we also had the opportunity to ride the gondola, which was pretty cool. Luckily we had good weather and therefore a nice view.
On our last evening we stayed a night in a small town called Valemount. We had BBQ with burgers and hot dogs there and we also made S’mores, a typical canadian snack. Later that evening our tour guide encouraged us to show typical dances of our nation. That’s why we learned Mexican, Japanese and Spanish dances. 🙂
Even though we arrived a bit later in Vancouver on Monday than we expected, we were still able to see the firework of Canada Day. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Overall, it was an incredible weekend and I’m really thankful for this great experience. If you haven’t been to the Rocky mountains yet, you should definitely think about going there.
See you all on Wednesday at the Dime On Granville.
