Beautiful Banff

I have always loved travelling outside of my comfort zone and travelling to far away worlds. However, I feel so lucky to be able to travel to Banff so often because it is just so darn close to home! Banff is great all seasons of the year. Hit the slopes in winter, hike and explore in spring summer and fall, and of course the food and drink is amazing any time of year. So is the shopping 🙂

In about a week or so I am planning on returning to this little outdoors paradise. Stops will include Johnstone Canyon & Ink Pots, Lake Louise, Canmore & other highlights. I will also be sharing a mouthwatering list of the best food and drink stops in Banff. Until then, feel free to share your ideas for other cool things to do, I always love hearing other perspectives & tips. Share by email at , twitter at @TravelWander , or comment below!

First I will make a list of some supplies you will need for camping. Continue reading


I just thought I would post this sunrise picture! I love sunrises and this particular picture was taken very early in the morning (or late in the night) off the coast of Alaska. Alaska may sound like a daunting place to travel, but I travelled to Alaska in the summer and the weather was beautiful! I even went snorkelling 🙂

A beautiful sunrise (at three in the morning!) off the coast of Alaska. I would go back here in a heartbeat.
