My friend emigrated to Calgary a few years ago and I have been promising to visit each year! But now I think I can, so am planning a long visit for next July.
But she is now relocating from Calgary to Victoria!
I will probably stay with my friend for 1 week, then possibly take a trip to the northern end of the island.
Thereafter, I want to spend a further 2 weeks exploring further, but am not sure where to go.
I have thought of hiring a car to travel to Banff.
Where I plan will dictate my flights. For example, I could fly into Vancouver and return from Calgary.
Or I could fly into Seattle and return from ?
Suggestions would be very welcome.
I shall either be travelling alone, or with my 21 year old daughter. I am accustomed to driving on the right and we're both seasoned travellers.
I'm not keen on package tours or large crowds of tourists. We like to walk and admire mountainous scenery, but we also like cities, museums, galleries and culture.
It's a big question, but someone here may trigger a really good idea I can investigate.
