    Calgary Tower quick visit

    May 11, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    With only a few hours to explore downtown Calgary, we embraced this city. It's cold here overnight and very grey, but now the sun has arrived. I particularly wanted to go up the needle, celebrating its 50th year.

    Farewell Rockies, you’ve been wonderful. Now for the next part of the adventure!

    Downtown, Inglewood and Riverwalk

    October 12, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 0 °C

    We had lunch at Sunterra Marché in Downtown Calgary. They had a sumptuous selection of salads and cold meats and even pies and sweet pastries. I enjoyed my roasted herb turkey and cranberry mixed grains salad.

    Then we shopped around for a bit, afterwards, off we went to Inglewood. When we alighted at Fair's Fair book shop, mom screamed when we realised that we were missing our shopping bag! Amazingly, when my sister and I went back to the bus stop where we thought it was inadvertently left, it was still at the exact spot! Definitely something to remember Calgarians about.

    Inglewood was a quaint suburb--the shops were for niché market, one featured yarns and crochet items, another dedicated itself to vintage, vinyl records. We had a taste of the award winning Inglewood Pizza known for its brick oven cooked pizza, and indeed we were satisfied with every bite when we partook it at the Bow River walk.

    The River Walk was very picturesque. The autumn foliage was at its soulful swan song, and a hint of sunset rays kindled everything into a burst of golden light. There was even a patch of plant there that reminded me of the fields where Russell Crowe's character meandered in Ridley Scott's 'The Gladiator.'

    After taking heaps of snapshots, we found ourselves back at Chinatown, then had another go at the Thai Bistro and we ordered their delicious pad Thai for takeout. Then Mom and Dad returned to Hotel Alma while my sister and I went back to her place to get the luggages we require to complete our packing for our departure on Saturday.

    Calgary: Ankunft im Hotel/Calgary Tower

    June 11, 2016 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Nachdem wir die erste Fahrt vom Flughafen in die Innenstadt überlebt hatten (man muss sagen die Kanadier sind sehr brav am Steuer und so rollten wir eher gemütlich im Strom dahin), checkten wir im Hotel Fairmont Palliser ein. Wir stellten am Beispiel der Rezeptionsdame überrascht fest, dass die Einheimischen vor Freundlichkeit und Begeisterung fast bei jedem Gespräch in Ohnmacht fallen. Wir haben übermüdet beschlossen, dass das eigentlich nur an uns liegen kann.

    Nachdem wir uns kurz frisch gemacht hatten, ging es auch schon auf den Calgary Tower. Hier bot sich uns zur ersten Orientierung eine gute Rundumsicht und als besonderes Schmankerl für alle Besucher mit Höhenangst einen Glasboden, durch den man mit weichen Knien 190,8 Meter in die Tiefe schauen konnte.
