Connections in Calgary – Calgary to Canmore Roadtrip Journal

While I was on my way to Calgary, I received a Facebook message from an old University friend. She wanted to know if I was still in Edinburgh. Nope, I wasn’t. I was outside of Winnipeg. Driving to Calgary. Guess where she was? In Calgary – visiting her family, then flying to Edinburgh for a week! I love how the world works. We picked a day and headed up to Canmore, where her sister Hillary has an awesome Hot Yoga Studio (go check it out!).

We caught up over some fine local ales.

Caught a show at the Communitea Cafe – the Beauties (from Toronto) and the Wagons (Australia). They were great and cool to see in such a small venue.

My view when I woke up in the morning. NBD.

Hillary sells these beautiful handmade bracelets in her yoga studio. She and Meg were both wearing them. I fell in love and bought this blue one. Lesley Ball makes the bracelets and necklaces and her company is called Bodhi Beadworks – you can find her on Etsy!

We went back to Communitea Cafe for breakfast and I had a delicious vegan breakfast wrap. So yum.  The gals swinging back to the studio.

Pippa below is from Ontario like moi. She left Toronto 4 months ago and has been driving around. I might just run into her again on the west coast (hopefully), and if I get back to Canmore, I’ll definitely be stopping in to see Hillary.
