    Finally made it to Calgary

    July 13, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    When I went to bed I was expecting to arrive into Jasper maybe 2-3 hours late which would work out perfectly for picking up the hire car. When I woke up, I found out we were running 7 hours late 😳 Oh well...there could definitely be worse places to be stuck than in the middle of the Rockies! So I made the most of it and filled my belly with more delicious food before we finally arrived into Jasper 7.5 hours late! I picked up the hire car - this time I got a cheeky upgrade and bagged myself a Rav-4! I set off on my 4.5 hour drive to Calgary and what a drive it was! The only way to go is through the Icefields Parkway and you can’t help but be blown away by the scenery. I took a quick stop when I saw some big horned sheep and then again at a a beautiful lake and finally made it to the hostel by 9pm. Stampede time tomorrow!!Read more
