Hullo, hullo from the beautiful Canadian Rockies!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again — I adore the mountains. Absolutely adore. There’s no place where I feel happier and more at peace. I would pack my bags and move here if I could, but until my dreams have a higher chance of actually materializing, the occasional weekend getaway will have to do.
So while I’m zooming down the side of a mountain and trying to avoid breaking my legs/ribs/arms/neck, check out some of these awesome links that I managed to gather up over the past week, and feel free to add a few of your own.
I hope you guys are having an amazing Sunday, and I’ll see you tomorrow with a recap of my trip, As We Speak style…
