Rockies Roadtrip | Quick Update

view from the plane
Arriving back in Toronto last night. As much as I love travelling and getting away from the city, I always love coming back home to Toronto. I love this city and it is home after all!

As you may have noticed, there was an abrupt end to my daily travel posts from the trip. I knew that if I let myself skip a day, I probably would've kept skipping days. Well I didn't know I would end up not posting at all for the final 11 days of the trip lol. There were a few reasons for this. Mostly because I had no time at all, slow internet, a lot of work, food poisoning, etc.

In the last update, I posted about Victoria. Getting back to our hotel in Vancouver that night was a looong stressful journey, and we ended up getting back super late. So I didn't have time to update. The next morning we left for Whistler where we were to stay for a night. As soon as we checked into our hotel in Whistler, we found out the next morning we had to be on the road already (to Kelowna) at 7am!! Thanks to the Ironman competition which conveniently and coincidentally was happening in Whistler that day. They were going to close a lot of roads and if we didn't leave at 7am we would've had to wait until 5pm that day to be able to drive on the highway again. So I didn't have time that night either.

The next morning, we left at 7am for Kelowna and had no luck getting any food or breakfast until 3-4 hours into the drive I think? Due to the lack of food and lack of sleep, I got extremely carsick and had to keep stopping the car along the way.

After Kelowna, we headed to Banff. I was fine in the car from then on - just had to make sure to sleep enough and eat before the drive lol. That night we arrived pretty late as well and ended up just getting some food at a grocery store for dinner. I am pretty sure I got food poisoning from something I ate. The next day I was bedridden for most of the day because I felt extremely nauseous (luckily that was the first day we decided to just stay in and relax anyway since the previous days had been so stressful and hectic)...I had to catch up on work as well so that's what I did the entire day in bed. It did take me the full day since the internet there was also suuuuper slow..so I didn't even attempt to upload photos and update the blog.

After about 2 days, I had recovered from my food poisoning. The last days of the trip (Calgary and Jasper) went fairly smoothly but consisted of a LOT of driving.

Anyway now I am back in Toronto. Just came back last night. I will definitely be posting the rest of the posts in the upcoming weeks (along with the Asia ones from last year still in progress hahah) but for now I just wanted to make a quick update. The trip was so much fun. So many funny moments and adventures every single day (at one time we literally ran out of gas and almost had to hitch hike to the nearest station or get towed..more on that in a future post). It was my first time travelling with friends and I really enjoyed it. I think we have a pretty similar travel style and personalities so it was great. Next time we reunite will be in Luxembourg! ;)
