We hit the ground runnin’ once again — Except for a gas stop and a lunch break in Swift Current, Saskatchewan where we stumbled upon the most delectable dutch bakery. The food was amazing, the service was excellent and although it’s a little bit of a greasy spoon — everything about it was marvellous. Highly recommend their sticky buns!
We continued on the trans Canada until we reached our friends in Cochrane, Alberta which is about 40 mins from Calgary. The drive was long. It was hot and was very thankful to be staying put for a couple days. We drove to Banff for an afternoon and the best part was having a Parks Canada Pass! The weather was prime tourist weather, so the town was pretty crowded, and the parking was insaneee. Literally, insane. All in all, 11/10.
Rocky Mountain Soap Company has a beautiful shop up in Banff that sells natural, toxic free products. It’s fresh, it’s clean and personally, I love the aesthetic.
We have done so much in the last few days that I’m going to post the photos, and then write a separate piece about some of the highlights, and the lowlights so far. So, since I’ve last posted: Calgary, Banff, Mara Lake, and Vancouver next!
