A year ago – the best afternoon in Banff

Sadly I left this blog unattended. But the day exactly a year ago is reason enough to give this blog a new life.

A year ago I had one of the best afternoons in my life. Well I had a lot of beautiful afternoons, but this one is worth remembering and it is one I always love to look back at. And facebook reminded me that it was a year ago. The sun was shining, it was a perfect day in the beginning of spring in Banff. It was too nice outside to stay indoors. But the reason it was so perfect and unique are the two lovely girls who spend it with me. They are one part of my Banff family.

Banff has amazing corners all around. You just step out of your door and find beauty in everything. There is no place, which is not beautiful or where you stand in awe and think to yourself that you never want to leave. It doesnˋt matter where you go to, if itˋs the Bow river, the town park, or some place you can stare at Mount Rundle or Cascade mountain and embrace their gorgeousness, or just hike to the top of Tunnel Mountain. The last one is amazing for sunrises btw.

That afternoon we decided to go to the Vermilion lakes though. We had to figure out the bike situation first, but that was settled in a couple of minutes and then we left. I was glad Hade and Seoyoung joined me, because I thought noone would be in the mood to explore after work. But the weather was too good to stay at home and donˋt enjoy it. Thatˋs what they thought too. The Vermilion Lakes are at the town edge, but you can easily access them by bike. You donˋt even need a bike, you can walk the way, but thatˋs a whole different story. There are three places at the lake where we stopped at. And every stop was one-of-a-kind. We walked on the ice, Seoyoung found a carrot, we laughed. We walked on a tree trunk, watched tadpoles, we laughed – „Look into the camera.“ „Where is the camera?“ „It is there (she is pointing somewhere) …Oh…“. We sat on the pier at the lakeside, the water still frozen, we watched the sunset, we enjoyed the silence around us. Mount Rundle was shining for us and never looked prettier. It was one of the moments I want to relive. With my friends. And even on the way back we were lucky and spotted some deers and elks. Only in Canada.

What is there to tell about me? I am a vegan girl who loves to travel. I am vegan since a couple years now and that change made me love to cook. I love healthy food, I love self made food and I love to try new things. But the most importend thing to me is traveling! I like to explore new places, meet new friends and struggle with the travelerˋs life. In 2016 I quit my 9-5 job and went to Canada. I fell in love with that country, but I also realized that traveling is the thing I want to do. I hope I can take you with me on my journey and maybe you will get addicted to that wanderlust-feeling as well. Follow me on Instagram @cantgowithout
