It started with meeting our friends at the Calgary airport and a coach ride to be dropped off at a scenic small town called Banf. The photo below is the back yard of our hotel Caribou Lodge, which reminded me of being in Switzerland. The early morning peace and the gentle water flowing was the kick start for our trip on the Rocky Mountaineer.
With finger licking delicious food being churned out of the kitchen, unlimited drinks, the Rocky Mountaineer is the ultimate luxury on wheels. Every tree, every river, every rock looked amazing as the Rocky Mountaineer curved around the mountains at a speed that allowed us to admire and take pictures.
Some eye candy! Water so clear you can see every bit of reflection.
We passed through unbelievable landscape and arrived in Kamploops for the night, only to board the train the next morning. We couldn't wait to get on the train again for such mind blowing scenic ride.
We arrived in Vancouver to another amazing city with so much character. We stayed in Vancouver for a few days before boarding the ship Alaska bound. My husband and I nor our friends are really cruise enthusiast, since this was Alaska we decided what better way to admire as we glide on the water.
