Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada is the one of the most beautiful places on earth.
I never expected to fall in love with Western Canada so much. While camping in the pristine wilderness, I learned so many lessons about life, travel, and myself; I can’t wait to see Banff again soon.
Prior to this trip, I was never much of an “outdoors” girl. I always loved the buzzing excitement – including shopping and dining – in big cities like New York or London. Dirt, bugs, smelly porta potties, hot tents, and critters never appealed to me so I didn’t gave camping much of a chance, not even when first traveled overseas and fell further down the wanderlust hole.
A big reason why I booked my G Adventures tour to Canada was to challenge myself. I wanted to experience the fuss of national parks for myself, as well as try my luck at camping.
Banff National Park turned out to be a very special place. Camping was fun. I even slept well, better than I have at some hotels. And the outdoors? Wowed me.
Thanks to this visit, I’m determined to experience every single National Park in the United States. It may take me a million years, but I’m gonna meet the challenge head-on.
Enjoy some of my favorite views of Banff National Park.
