I’ve been talking to a friend recently about holidays to Canada. She’s considering her first one there and talking to her has made me consider that maybe, just maybe I do want another one.
We both have similar interests so on chatting we’ve identified Vancouver and Vancouver island as a potential holiday spot. I’ve been told that Calgary to Vancouver to Vancouver Island is one of the best drives you can do and that there’s nothing like driving out of Calgary and watching the wall that is the Rockies appear in front of you. Or as one girl put it ‘you think, How and I ever going to get my car up and over those!’
I’m thinking it would be fantastic in the Autumn with the leaves turning and the possibility of maybe just a sprinkling of snow. I also want to take the trip it in a camper-van…
Now, if you’ve read my other blogs about California then you’re possibly wondering about the sense in my sleeping in a metal box in a land where black and brown bears roam free and even the odd grizzly. Oh God, the possibility of meeting one of those bad boys doesn’t bear thinking about! But regardless of my yellow-belly behaviour back then I’m pretty sure I could handle it now. Yes I could.
So now I have the dilemma of what to do. Do I man-up and face my (completely justified in my opinion) fear of being mauled alive or do I take a package holiday to Spain.
Mauled alive V’s a run in with eager Thomson package holiday rep…I’ve more chance of coming out the other side if I take my chances with the grizzlies.
I’m of to Flickr picture of Vancouver to get myself in the mood.
Ihearttravel began as a travel blog for the Fiance and I but over the years circumstances have changed and it's now the travel/holiday version of www.and1makes4.co.uk for all our family activities and places we love to visit. Less of the exciting trips to California an the likes and more of the UK :-)
