Most people keep track of anniversaries like their wedding date, the day they signed on their first house, or making it a year without smoking cigarettes (which is great and should be celebrated).
"Holy knights of Columbus, I'm in BANFF!!!"
Everywhere I looked stood huge snow covered peaks. I pulled over on the side of the road to read the map and figure out where in the heck I even was, as it turned out to be a sweet ski town called Fernie. And out of the blue, there was water streaming down the mountain with locals filling up their water bottles and jugs. I hopped out of the car, filled up the dogs water bowl, and filled up my Nalgene with indubitably the best drinking water I have ever tasted in my entire 26 years- nectar of the gods!
"Keep Dreamin' even if it breaks your heart."
I fell in love three years ago with a country that has a landscape to die for. The heartbreak that comes with travel is that you want to stay and leave at the same time in many of the places you visit, because each place steals a bit of your heart. The experience I took from these mountains is irreplaceable, and the beauty I will never forget. I will return to Canada, and the next time I won't be alone.
