Last week I was in Western Canada and it was amazing.
Just because Mike is now working for Woo Themes full-time doesn’t mean that I intend to sit at home now (it doesn’t really mean he intends to sit at home all the time either, but it does mean he has to be pickier with how he spends his vacation days). When Coast Hotels invite me to be a part of their Great Coast Road Trip, I jumped at the chance. I invited fellow travel blogger Amanda Williams (from A Dangerous Business) to be my co-pilot.
The premise of this trip is really neat: a massive 35 day road trip stretching from Northern Canada to Southern California, with each leg being done by a different blogger. We had the “Peak to Peak” leg, which stretched from Calgary over the Rockies through Kamloops then down to the Okanagan Valley. The trip is still ongoing- you can check it out with the #GreatCoastRoadTrip hashtag.
I am not overstating things when I saw that this part of Canada is beyond stunning. It was a little difficult to drive with my mouth hanging open and my neck permanently turned towards the mountains.
I’ll be writing a few more detailed articles over the next couple of weeks, but until then, here are some of my favorite moments, and views, from our 5 day trip out west.
