A Day In Banff

Hello everyone!
Since I moved to Calgary a few months ago, I’ve been dying to go to Banff. I can see the mountains from my balcony and to see them up close was just amazing, a feeling a cannot describe.

Back home I grew up surrounded by mountains. They were not covered in snow but they were very high and beautiful. Then I moved to Toronto and then Ottawa… And as you know, is pretty flat.. No mountains at all..

This week, we had a day off and we decided to spend a day in this Magical Place! I’m going to share some pics with you:

Banff is a lovely town with breath taking sceneries. It has an unique charm and architecture. I really enjoyed the art galleries and all the souvenirs stores. The best of all? It’s so close to Calgary, which means that I will be going there a lot… πŸ˜‰

After hours of walking and appreciating the views, we stopped at this lovely and cozy restaurant to eat something. The interior of the restaurant is very cool. It looks like a log house and they have flags from several countries around the ceiling.

Being a vegetarian can be quite hard sometimes.. But they had a delicious Veggie Sandwich. What I liked the most was the homemade vinaigrette dressing for my salad.

I will never forget the feeling I had when I saw this little lovely town for the first time. Now, I can’t wait to see what this place looks like in the summer. Nature is just way too wonderful!!

    The only mountain town I have visited in Canada so far is Whistler. I would love to visit Banff and the Canadian Rockies as well.

    Last month we had series of events related to the celebration of the Banff festival. It’s mostly outdoor brands in the celebration and seeing your post makes me realize how beautiful Banff is. I hope to see the place too.

    Calgary is beautiful! Banff looks like Christmas at this time~ like Classic Christmas scenery during December. It’s so unlike Singapore! 😦 I’m glad you enjoyed it though!
