Holy cow… what an amazing, action packed, beautiful last week!  My husband and I traveled to Banff, Canada which I mentioned here for his President’s Club trip.  It was a stunning vacation that we managed to pack as much activity into as possible.  From golfing on one of the most beautiful courses I have ever seen, to hiking in the Canadian Rockies, taking a Gondola to one of the highest peaks for miles, spending an afternoon in the relaxing Fairmont Willow Springs Spa to finally, kayaking up the Bow River... it was a trip I will never forget.

It was a perfect balance of activity and relaxation.  Lingering lunches overlooking scenic views with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc in hand was then matched by kayaking up stream in our two-person kayak .  I would not have changed a thing on this trip and I am still beyond grateful for all the experiences we had together.

Here is one of our kayaking videos... it is seriously now my new favorite outdoor activity.  I think I am going to search Craigslist for a good deal on a used!  My apologies for the windiness... but gives you a good idea of how beautiful the river and lakes were that we went through.
