    ... had eaten the breakfast (or in my case tried to eat but failed miserably) we then headed up to the area that you get on the gondolas and got on them. THEY WERE AWESOME!!!!! We trundled up the mountains and chatted on the way, meanwhile we were looking for bears. We didn't see one until we got to the top where this massive grizzly bear who had apparently wandered up to picnic place and had then wandered away. The view on the way down was epic, you could see lake ...

    ... of crushed ice. There were rivulets of ice-cold meltwater cascading down off it, which obviously had to be sampled – fresh and tasty, I’m pleased to report! We had about 20 mins on the glacier, within strict boundaries, to move around, take photos and soak in the sensation of being on a piece of ice that is thicker than the Eiffel Tower is tall.

    ... an hour or so, we sat by the river and dipped our toes in - lovely and refreshing! We walked back through the town and shops before finding The Old Spaghetti Factory. We ate here in Vancouver and it was lovely as well as cheap so we chose there again!! Both had the salad to start and ice cream to finish (included in the price) then Phil had ribs and I had steak. Both were yummy and we had a side of spaghetti bolognese, random, but it's better than chips when you think of the name of ...

    ... away when the coal became too expensive to mine and also the National Parks did not want such industry within their borders. Looking at the photos was a poignant reminder that you may have a happy life but you never know what’s round the corner.

    We stopped in Banff and set off to find some dinner. We ended up at the Rose and Crown, the oldest pub in Banff, and enjoyed some good old pub food and a bottle of wine before getting a taxi back to the ...
