    Comfortable yet Crowded

    The best part of the Samesun was the people I met there. I stayed for a week and found it comfortable but crowded. The place was bright, fun and quite lively, but not ideal for someone like myself who likes her space. The kitchen was far too small for the number of guests as was the common room and the bar downstairs. Breakfast every morning was pancakes, which are fantastic. A bit cliquey, definitely a party hostel.

    Not The Best

    No lockers, small kitchen, dirty pillows, blocked toilet that nobody seemed willing to sort out. Nice enough, and close to town, but unless you're there for the long term and one of the in-crowd it's not the best.

    There is so much to say about Banff. Really this is a completely new chapter in my life and I'm just realizing the shear volume of it now. Everything has changed, I now live a life without deadlines, where I am free to come and go as I please.

    I don't even know what to write about this place to be honest, its so perfect, absolutely …

    Once again I have decided to take on an enormous hike with little to no planning. Outside of my window in the Samesun Hostel, I can see mountains all around. Over the fireplace is the lovely and intimidating Cascade mountain. I've seen it covered in clouds and washed in morning sunshine, sometimes dusted with fresh powdery snow. I was determined to …

    ..after a couple of amazing days in Jasper my roadtrip continued to Lake Louise and Banff. As well as the last time there was a lucky fellow traveller in Jasper who had to go to Lake Louise, so I gave Martin from Chile a ride and we hiked around Lake Louise in the afternoon. But first of all, I have to point out that we spotted two black bears …
