Last summer, as I was leaving the magical mountains of Lofoten, my Norwegian sisters and I made another pact: Canada Trip, Summer 2017. Fast forward exactly 1 year later, and there we were– the three swag sisters, united again! Our trip to Canada last month marks the third year in a row that I’ve met up with my Norwegian friends for a summer adventure trip. This means, it’s an official tradition.
Margit flew in from Africa, and had over 24 hours of travel time. She landed in Canada first and had to wait another 5 hours in the Calgary airport for me to arrive from New York. Despite her total exhaustion, (and my total annoyance that my bag was left behind), we were laughing within seconds of seeing each other, and basically didn’t stop laughing all trip. Maria met us in Calgary two days later, due to some airline delays in Amsterdam. Margit and I spent our time in Calgary preparing for our adventures. We bought camping supplies, maps, fuel, and most importantly: bear spray. Our plans moving forward were loose, but we knew we had to make it west to Whistler, and then back to Calgary to catch our flights home.
I hope to sift through my photos and journal entires so that I can share more of our trip with you all. But until then enjoy this video.
