Great chalet about 15 minutes out of Lake Louise but worth the drive. Spacious cabin with gas fireplace and Jacuzzi in the main room! Pleasant balcony with forest / mountain views. Café / restaurant was great - especially the mussels! No TV and poor reception so very relaxing .... even had time for a jigsaw and cards! Staff were very friendly and attention to detail amazing .... only downside was no ironing board and plenty of mozzies!

... chuckling to myself in disbelief. Probably looked a bit odd I would imagine.
When I actually arrived it was dry (no snow) and dark, I could just about make out some shadowy mountain peaks but I couldn't really see much at all. I pretty much went straight to bed. I was the only one in my dorm, bonus! When I woke up the next morning and opened the curtains I saw white. ...

This should have been a 10 minute ride but due to the three day weekend, it took quite awhile. Traffic was unbelievable and the sidewalks were loaded. Downtown is reminiscent of Gatlinburg, TN, but without Ripleys Believe it or Not. All the ...
... has given all of us a sense of what life was like pre-electricity. Skoki is really popular during the winter too and we talked about how the ski-ers would have to light the wood burner in the cabin and how it would be dark so early then. We found it was light til very late. Which made trips to the outhouse across the camp much easier!
Tomorrow we would be making the return 11k hike down the mountain and hoped we had rested up enough that it would be a doddle!!
I get to write the travel entry again. Which is great but it is really hard to do justice to this amazing country.
So we packed up yet again. We are getting good at it now and haven't left anything behind. Yet. Shouldn't say that should I?! Having had scorching weather for the past 10 days, it was a bit of a shock to see the sky was overcast. Paddy was up early for a last swim in the lake. We love lake swimming! It is ...
