Our Trip to Vancouver is fast approaching. Hubby is taking 10 days or so off. We plan on leaving on Saturday morning. Hubby won, we are renting a van for our trip. I would have liked to rent an SUV, but we were as cramped in that as we were in the car, and for such a long trip you do not want to be cramped.
The first eight hours of our trip will be pretty boring, driving in the prairies of Saskatchewan and Alberta *yaaaaaaawn*. We will drive from Saskatoon to Banff; a 9.5hr drive. Did you know that King Hussein had a home in Banff?
From there I still do not know where we will go. I need to book hotels. We will probably stop at radium hot spring for few hours. It is so refreshing. I cannot wait! I think we will stop at Kelowna, and few other places. The drive from Banff to Vancouver is not that long, but because we want to drive around the mountains it will be slow.
I have never been to Vancouver, it is on the ocean and I love the ocean. Maybe we’ll go to the island and to the beach.
The one cool thing is I will have ten computer less days! I’ll miss my blog! And my baby center friends. How will I live without my computer? If I want to order pizza, I usually come online to find the number and the info.
The only thing is that we are scared of is running into bears!! Man those things look so cute and cuddly, but they are huge! Did you know that a 20million year or so ago bears were the size of dogs? In the information booklet you get when entering Banff, they have information on what to do if you run into a bear. Are they kidding me? Do not move while a huge 1000lb bear is charging at me at few km/hr? Gosh I’d probably pass out if a bear charges at me! Well let’s hope that we do not run into any bears or cougars. Nice wild life is ok and the kids will love it.
O and their goes my weight loss efforts! No gym, and eating out for 10 days! I guess I will have to find a way to workout everyday before going to bed. Pilates, some weight training or hopefully the hotels will have exercise rooms! Where there is a will, there is a way :o)
