          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.

          Today is Hannah's birthday! This morning started at sunrise with a drive up into the mountains through forests in the various Canadian national parks. Every turn we commented on how beautiful it was and how much more beautiful it seemed to be getting. Snow capped mountains and clear rivers. Breakfast was in a service station car park, probably the …

          Dneska jsme měli budíček v sedm hodin, nastavili jsme si ho tak sami, abychom byli brzy na cestě směr Banff a cestou stihli naplánované zastávky. Asi z nás ostatní spolunocležníci nebyli moc nadšení, že ráno šramotíme už tak brzy, ale nu což. :D

          Today we drove back to Banff. The forrest fires were threatening the closure of the major hwy between jasper and banff so we weren't able yo make any stops until we made it off the hwy. Our stop was at Peyto Lake - the bluest of all the lakes. It was really pretty but we didnt hang around and enjoy the view for long as the pescy mossies were back …
