CANADA

A Recommended Canada Itinerary

So you are planning a trip to Canada and want to experience as much of this beautiful country as you can whilst you are here. Where do you start, what do you see, what can you afford to miss? Well if you don’t want to miss too much you are going to need three weeks, two weeks in Canada is just not enough time to do everything. So what would a 3 week itinerary look like? That is what I am going to [...]

The scariest bridge in the world?

Thankfully we didn’t have too much planned for today because we woke up to awful weather. We shrugged it off and headed downstairs for our free breakfast that was served in the attached pub. It was very dark and dingy, we hate pubs but at least it didn't smell of stale beer! Breakfast was not too bad, and after yesterday's insulin spiking carb fest we both reached for the plain yogurt and added mi [...]

Shackles off, helmets on

It has arrived! After 10 days, the day has come were we are free from the primal diet shackles. With no dietary constraints the first stop had to be anywhere that served Nutella Pancakes. After a long search on the internet and wondering aimlessly around Vancouver asking anyone we could see it became apparent that you can’t get Nutella Pancakes in Vancouver! One lady recommended Cafe Crepe jus dow [...]

Are we in Walking Dead?

Hopping off the train this morning in downtown Vancouver we were full of optimism and eager to explore a city that is frequently dubbed as one of the best cities in the world to live in. As with most major cities, accommodation isn’t cheap so our hotel was, as usual, out of the popular downtown areas. It was about a 30 minute walk East but with the sun shining we didn’t mind and set off on the mos [...]

Is Kelowna Canada’s California?

It was another early start today to pack up the tent and leave Revelstoke for Kelowna. We’re basically only heading to Kelowna thanks to the man in Billabong. I was buying some shorts in there the other day and as usual we got chatting about where we was heading and the guy on the till suggested Kelowna. He described it as Canada’s version of California, full of beaches, sun and fun. That was enou [...]

Chaotic Catwalking

You know when you live somewhere you never do all the tourist attractions that are on your doorstep? Well we kind of fell into this mentality when we was in Banff. Right next to our campsite their was several viewing areas of Mt Rundle that we kept driving straight past thinking, this is close to the campsite, we will do it later. Anyway, realising this we made an effort and did them today. You ha [...]

Moraine Lake VS Lake Louise

We found our favourite ‘primal’ breakfast this morning, full fat greek yoghurt with blueberries, trail mix and honey mixed in. Mmmm it was delicious. Tonight is our first night camping in Banff Village so before leaving the Lake Louise area we set off for Moraine Lake, a few of my family members in Toronto said not to miss this lake and it’s actually rated higher on Tripadviser than Lake Louise so [...]

Gazing at the Glaciers

By far one of the most scenic hikes in the Canadian Rockies, the Plain of Six Glaciers trail offers expansive views of the impressive mountain features that surround Lake Louise, including Mt. Lefroy, Mt. Victoria and the Victoria Glacier. We didn’t know about this hike until late last night and after reading “if you only do one hike make sure its this one” we cleared the plan of Lake Morain and h [...]
