After 6 days in Canmore we returned to Calgary to stay with my son and his family.
We had more time to look around the area now.
Our son and is family live in a residential area with wide tree lined streets. There are many white birch trees which look lovely in the snow.
The river is never far away.
One highlight of our Canadian trip (and there were so many) was meeting fellow bloggers, Hilary and Hitoshi. Hilary is Canadian and Hitoshi is Japanese and together they write a couple of blogs about life in Japan and Canada. I have learnt a lot about life and folklore in Japan from their blogs, Japan Can(ada) Mix and Gozumezu. It was so nice to meet them in person and also to meet their toddler who was so well behaved. We had a great lunch in a Japanese restaurant in Calgary – one I think we will be visiting again.
That brings to the end this mini series on our Canadian holiday. To see other travel posts please search on the category Travel on my blog.
