Banff, or see if you can pronounce it

Well, the next day on our trip was one that I would just as soon forget, but I can't. It started off OK, but then I got an incredible nosebleed, and got to experience Canadian Health Care (actually, it was very good), but while the rest of the group did fun stuff such as riding up a gondola, and visiting lakes, I was lying around, bleeding, with a nasal tampon (yes, they make them) up my nose, and trying to recover from the loss of 1 liter (litre) of blood. The next day was better, and we just walked around the town of Banff, with its beautiful Bow River, its quaint shops, and its magical view of the mountains. I still wasn't really up to eating, but did manage to get some ice cream down. In any event, the next day's journey would prove to be spectacular.


  1. I have just discovered your blog. Your photos are wonderful!

  2. Thanks so much, and welcome! Like you, I am a wanderer at heart, but I have only been able to do my wandering part time so far. But who knows, maybe I'll become a full time wanderer someday too.
