Calgary, Alberta

Maybe something in his dream chased him

We all have this kind of voice within us. This dream we want to make come true. Some of us have the deepest desire to build a house, have a family, have a successful business. Others among us dream of leaving everything behind and explore new horizons. Whatever your calling may be in life, stop dreaming. Chase your dream instead.

My Canadian Adventure started in Calgary last June, right before the Calgary Stampede. Little did I know that I was at the start of an awesome journey that would bring me from the plain landscapes of Calgary to the majestic Rocky Mountains to end up on the beautiful west coast where I would spend my winter.

If you are traveling to Calgary begin July make sure you have accommodation and mode of transportation booked before you arrive here because everything gets really expensive and sells out quickly.

Cheap Bastard Travel Tip : The first thing people would go to for a great view of the city would the Calgary Tower but if you would like to save those $ 18 CAD for a good view of the city I would recommend to go to Crescent Heights. It is a bit of a walk but it takes you through the Prince’s Island Park and over the Bow River. Climb the long staircase and enjoy the view while you catch your breath. Okay, okay – it’s not the same panorama view but definitely satisfied my hunger. Also a great viewpoint for whenever there are fireworks in the city (like Canada Day).

Where to stay ? HI Hostel is recently renovated (June 2014) and has all the things you need for a comfortable stay as a backpacker.
