When i think about my next travel destination, travelling within Canada would never cross my mind. I don't think most Canadiens are aware of the beauty we have in our very own country. I travelled to Calgary for a 3 day conference and could not miss the opportunity to visit Banff. My first day there, i had met with my friend Nicole who lives in Calgary, she had offered to be my tour guide for the weekend and to show me the rocky mountains. The scenery was a breathe of fresh air from what i was use to seeing in Toronto, i was super anxious to go explore.
Banff was breathtaking, it was so relaxing being out there in the mountains away from the busy city. It was hard to fathom that what i was seeing was in Canada; everywhere i looked was picture perfect. Although, i didn't have the opportunity to go see Lake Louise, this now gives me an excuse to go back. Whenever i travel, i make a point to find the best brunch restaurants. These two restaurants are a MUST to check out for brunch while in Calgary, MONKI Breakfast Club & Bistro& The Holy Grill and for dessert Jelly Modern Doughnuts!
