a wonderful couple of hours spend in the relaxing BC countryside.
Golden,BC : a great roadside town, not too far from Canmore in East British Columbia.
The Ranch Campground in Golden: pretty rough and unhelpful staff. give this one a miss!
@KainTayoCanmore in Canmore “eclectic street food” at it’s best.
Every year since Henry and I have been together we have been on the slopes for his birthday (Minus one random year when we booked an apartment in Shoreditch – I’ll take the fresh air of the mountains over a sweaty night clubbing in east London any time) This year with covid and child careContinue reading “Golden Snowmobiling”
Yay! Restaurants are finally open! A little bit of normality coming back to our lives after what has been an extremely abnormal event. I am very lucky to have a close group of like-minded girlfriends here in Canmore that all love good food, good drinks and good conversation. I work with most of these ladiesContinue reading “Review: Änkôr”
Henry and I had an amazing experience skating on lake Minnewanka this winter. The lake, just outside Banff, is huge, and gives you so much space to explore. Our new year’s resolution of making more time for each other has started with our Friday afternoon dates. Making the most of a small amount of timeContinue reading “Wild Ice – Edition #2 – Minnewanka”
If you are looking to pass a few hours the Heart Creek Trail is a nice easy hike in the Valley. Easy for kids and dogs and a pretty special part of the valley when you start walking away from the highway. Heart creek is pretty easy to get too. The car park is rightContinue reading “Heart Creek Trail”
It’s early January, pretty bloody cold, and lockdowns been extended! (great!) This seemed like a perfect time to tell you about my favorite summer adventure to cheer us all up! If you find yourself in Canmore mid-summer then you will not be able to avoid the beautiful Bow River and all the activities that itContinue reading “The Float: Banff to Canmore on The Bow River”
Henry and I are both pretty active. We love snowboarding but both only really have free time at the weekend to go, and then we have to pay a sitter to have Rocket. That all adds up and a day snowboarding without a season pass can cost a fortune. This year we are going toContinue reading “Wild Ice – edition #1”
Today is one of those bitter cold days. Obviously it’s cold in Canada in the winter, and right now we are in late December, the sky is gray and it says -6 but feels more like -15. The perfect time to think back of those warm summer days and outdoor activities. When you arrive inContinue reading “LadyMac”
If you’re looking for a minibreak in the area then I would highly recommend visiting Kootney park lodges.http://www.kootenayparklodge.com/ The 6 of us (Henry, Me, Rocket and the sausage crew) booked to stay in a cabin for one night for mine and Henry’s 5th wedding anniversary. The lodges are located at vermillion crossing on highway 93.Continue reading “Review: Kootenay Park Lodges”
I’ve had a soft spot for Lake Minnewanka ever since Henry and I first visited the site in 2017. We came through Banff on a summer road trip and couldn’t miss visiting the lake with the funny name. (Not so funny if your Canadian, but us Brits with a silly sense of humor can’t missContinue reading “Lake Minnewanka”
For anyone looking for a fun, easy camping experience with kids I would highly recommend Sundance Lodges in Kananaskis. You can go with you own tent or RV or you can hire one of their Tipis or Trappers tents. We hired a trapper’s tent for Rockets first birthday and it was excellent. We don’t haveContinue reading “Sundance Lodges: review”
