The Peace Bridge in Calgary – a splash of colour

The Peace Bridge in Calgary is actually quite new. With its shiny red colour and unique shape, it definitely stands out architecturally in Calgary. It opened in 2012 but has become something of a landmark already. I’m sure you’ve seen it on pictures – Fredrik and I have, many times. Since we’re leaving town soon, we realized we…

First time skiing in Banff can make you both nervous and excited, depending on where (and how often) you’ve been skiing before. First time skiing in general, will probably mostly make you nervous. At least if you’re anything like me. On our way to the ski hill, I was actually not excited at all, just…
