Here’s Why You Need to Get To The Canadian Rockies in 2023

It’s absolutely not a shock for me to sit down to write a blog post in the form of a love letter to the Canadian Rockies. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to travel to Alberta and British Columbia on several occasions, and each time was life changing. Most recently on a getaway with Rebecca to Banff, I truly felt a sense of stillness again, which for those of you who follow me will know is something I crave amid the fabulous non-stop life I lead. There are destinations and experiences in this world that hold what I can only describe as magic, and I’m about to venture off to yet another one with Julio.

Adventures in the Capital of B.C.

If you had asked me at the beginning of this year to name all of the places in Canada that I wanted to visit, I can honestly tell you that Victoria wouldn’t have even made the list. Not because it’s unworthy of a trip, but because I never really thought too much about the city. Plus, I already had a long list of other places I was excited about seeing in this wonderful country. Well, let me tell you… I had no clue what I was missing.
