    Yoho National Park

    June 4, 2019 in Canada ⋅ 🌬 15 °C

    Soo.. taking suggestions by locals into consideration and in view of the weather forecast, we decided to change our route slightly.
    Instead of driving up to Jasper, we took a left turn and are now driving through Yoho National Park.

    Here we’re staying one night in Field, a town which doesn’t even have a grocery store. However, Emerald Lake and the Wapta Falls are close by and that is reason enough to stop!Read more

    Lake Louise - Day 2

    June 3, 2019 in Canada ⋅ 🌬 10 °C

    Wow wow wow 😮
    This is one of the most beautiful places we’ve both ever been to!

    The first part of the way led us up to the “Little Beehive” where we had the most incredible view on Lake Louise and Mirror Lake.
    Our next stop was Lake Agnes which was nearly completely frozen (in June!). After a short break at the super cute Tea House, we made our way back down to the lake shore.

    In total we walked 17,9 km and 133 floors that day and luckily didn’t meet a grizzly in the way.

    Lake Louise - Day 1

    June 2, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Leaving Banff city was sad.. but then we came here! The next 2 nights we’re staying at the campground in Lake Louise.

    Today we took it easy once more and drove to Lake Moraine and Lake Louise just to have a look. Tomorrow we’re going for a big hike, to see the full beauty of Lake Louise from the 🔝

    Banff - Day 3

    June 1, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Not much to say today..
    We had a wonderful relaxing day at Two Jack Lake!! (Couldn’t do any hiking because our muscles are sore from yesterday’s tour 😃)

    Banff - Day 2

    May 31, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    The first night in our new „hotel“ was not us comfortable as we hoped. Ohh but when we woke up the view was definitely worth it!

    As none of us has travelled and slept in a car for a longer time before, these first days are all about learning and improving. So we decided to step up our game and buy an inflatable mattress.

    Our hike for the day was up AND down Sulphur Mountain, a 5.5km trail, 700m total elevation gain to 2281m!!
    My face looked a tiny bit as if I would faint any minute but we made it all the way up and it was sooooo worth it 😍

    Oh and the perfect end of the day was a visit at Banff Hot Springs!

    Banff - Arrival and Day 1

    May 29, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    We arrived in paradise!
    Banff National Park is exactly what you imagine it - but much better!

    The first night wie stayed at the Samesun Hostel wich was .. short (6 person dorm with 1 snoring and one talking in his sleep). However, we were rewarded with pancakes and muffins for breakfast. 😋

    We were lucky to reserve the last spot on Tunnel Mountain campground for the next three days, where we’ll sleep in our lovely 🚐 (we named him Bagel).

    In the afternoon of day 1, we did a shorter (but intense) hike up Tunnel Mountain which offers a wonderful view of Banff city and the surrounding mountains.

    Oh Calgary!

    May 27, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    To be honest ...
    we haven’t heard a lot/the nicest things about the city. This stop was primarily planned as it is close to Banff.

    The truth is, you don’t need a full week to explore everything. However, it is sooooo nice here!!!!
    Downtown with cool sky scrapers, loads of stunning parks and buzzy districts with restaurants and bars.

    Rouven and I are definitely recommending this stop before heading to Banff.

    Bye Toronto!

    May 26, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We the north!
    This phrase of Toronto‘s NBA team was written everywhere Saturday night when they played back home. The vibe was similar to a soccer World Cup final in Germany and after the team won, the whole city went crazy. This was definitely one of our favourite experiences so far 😃

    We spent the next and last day on Canada’s east side in Toronto’s distillery district. This part of the city is full of art shops, restaurants and is the perfect place to spend a Sunday.

    Now all bags are packed again for our flight to Calgary!

    Niagara Falls

    May 24, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Woooow 😯

    On our second day in Toronto, we drove down to Niagara Falls which are definitely pretty impressive!

    Although I‘m aware that it‘s a tourist attraction and a spot millions of visitors come each year, I was surprised by the „fun park vibe“ the surrounding has. Other than you might assume, Niagara Falls are between two cities (🇨🇦&🇺🇸) and not surrounded by pure nature. I can’t speak for the American side but as you walk into the main street right next to the falls in Canada, it’s full of lights, sounds, arcades and other attractions.

    At the end of the day we had to say goodbye to sweet Maple (our 🚗), as we‘ll get on a plane in a few days over to Calgary.

    Stop No. 5 - Toronto

    May 23, 2019 in Canada ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    Last stop on Canada‘s east side!

    The first day was suuper relaxing and full of vintage stores, coffee breaks and chilling at the park. We walked around Kensington Market, an area close to China town with tons of cute restaurants, bars and cafés.
    On our way we came through Graffiti Alley (as you can see 😁📸).

    Oh and obviously we didn’t miss out on CN tower..
