Tuesday; an amazing drive to Jasper.

The main thing about travelling, as well as the places, is the people you meet. The trek yesterday had a lovely German couple and their two teenage daughters, as well as a young English couple. They just did the morning and then we had Gy to ourselves for the afternoon. The German dad was telling us about his accomodation, actually in the park, a remote log house; no phone signal, no wi-fi, “So the girls were pretty upset,” he told us,”but it means they are having to talk to us.” Great bloke, very funny and guess what really bonded we three chaps? You’ll never guess. None of us liked, followed or enjoyed football. Now what were the chances of that?

We said goodbye to Neil and Sandy; such lovely people. See, that’s what I mean.


They welcomed us into their home and made us feel special. The trip advisor comment is on its way; the house was beautiful and even had it’s own waterfall in the bathroom!


And the lake view; how lucky have we been? So away to Jasper and what a drive! More lakes more mountains and more rivers.


Somewhere we saw an Elk, but again no picture; just by the roadside as we passed by. And somewhere we lost an hour and had to put our watches forward! Time zones! Now there’s a thing we don’t get in England. The B & B is very different, Annilies from Austria, the host is amazing. More on this as the stay progresses methinks.


The picture on the right is Mount Robson, lucky to see so much of it apparently! And this our bedroom and home for the next three nights.


Tomorrow, who knows? Our own time to do as we please.

Thanks for reading…………..do comment.

Malcolm and Mary

Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.

  1. What a wonderful adventure you are both having. We are still in Switzerland having to put up with 29 degrees by the pool. We are also having a some lovely walks but even Switzerland can’t beat the scenery you are enjoying. Keep having fun. David & Jackie

  2. Enjoying every post. It makes coming to work an interesting experience, as I open your latest post first, before I do anything else!! Usually reading them at about 0630. I am sure I spied a Range Rover in one of your pictures from todays post?? Keep on having fun. Aye Mike Stone

    1. You did indeed see one! It’s the lovely Neil and Sandy’s. Everyone else seems to drive around in huge trucks, that make a great rumbling noise as they pass. He wanted to end up in the Lake District but she bought the plot of land! Funny the twists people’s lives take?
