My Favorite Views of Banff
Wooooow, everyone, 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. I want to go in winter to transform into a Skiing Queen, haha.
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. I’m also not an incredible hiker, and even though Banff has many hikes for all levels, I was still nervous about strapping on my boots and getting into nature’s face.
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.
