    26&27: Everyday we're traveling

    September 30, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ -1 °C

    Today we will leave beautiful Nelson and have to say goodbye to our friends. Who took such good care of us during our stay in Canada! We're forever grateful to them, thanks to them we had such a wonderful time in Canada! Our Greyhound bus wil leave at 1855, but you have to be their an hour in advance. So we took it slow. Wandered around in downtown Nelson to do some last shopping. After that I made the last bicycle ride with Nanuk almost all the way to BOB, untill it was time to pack our bags. Which took us almost an hour with all the stuff we got to sort out😅. One last shower and we were ready to leave this wonderful place. We met up with Jane and Jordan at the Subway for a last meal together. Jane drove us to the busstop and since the office was closed (and needed to wait outside) we did some shopping with Jane untill we were ready to say goodbye. Luckily it came a bit earlier then expected! We've found us a good spot in the bus for the 12hour long drive. We will beheaded on our way to Calgary very shortly ;-) so we tried to fall a sleep asap to get in the flow of the Dutch time, to prevent a jetlag.. I slept pretty good due to the narcotics Maris gave me but Maris didn't though (probably used to it).. We arrived in Calgary at 7am and walked to our hotel. It was quite a temperature difference, we were freezing. Lucky for us we could already check in at our hotel. We figured that after so much nature and be thrown back in a big city like this we decided to go to the Calgary Zoo, to see more animals! We finally got to see the grizzly bear, we have been searching for this animal on all our hikes to prevent a dangerous situation and here it was! The male was very big and really you wouldn't want this guy showing up on your trail. Although it was just below freezing point we loved the zoo and got to see a few animals Maris didn't see before in real life, like the grizzly of course, panda and a hippopotamus. When we had seen everything in the park we walked back to the city via some small parks and take a look at Peace Bridge.I had my watch already on Dutch time and it was time to go for dinner, a bit early here, but we wanted to go to bed early. We decided on Sushi which is always a good choice! We started our holiday with it, so why not end with it as well! It was delicious! Too bad both of our phones and the camera couldn't stand the cold and therefore the batteries died😅. Our last hurtle was to get back to our hotel without any navigation, but with a good sense of direction and some logic we found it without getting lost. We took our showers, read some, blogged some and went to sleep for the last time in Canada. Our next night will be up in the air somewhere above the big ocean🤗.Read more
