Beautiful Vignettes of Vancouver!

I’m happy to share my experience of Vancouver with you. I recently visited this beautiful city on the Pacific shore of British Columbia, Canada. Vancouver is a cosmopolitan city with a close connection to nature, offering visitors a variety of things to see and do.

One of my favorite places in Vancouver is Stanley Park, a grand urban oasis with gardens, totem poles, and the iconic Girl in a Wetsuit statue.

The Museum of Anthropology is another must-see, home to wondrous totem poles by First Nations artists.

For those seeking thrills, the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park offers the chance to walk across hanging bridges, both large and small.

As we approached Vancouver on a balmy summer night, many more experiences awaited us. I’m excited to share my adventures with you in this blog post.

Spirit Island in Canada – A famous icon of the Canadian Rockies

Spirit Island in Canada, a famous icon of the Canadian Rockies, is remote and is only reachable by a boat, a kayak, or canoe.

When I was exploring the majestic Canadian Rockies, the wilderness all around evoked in me a quest for remoteness – a place completely cut-off from the complex world we live in.

The postcard-perfect Spirit Island, which is not easily accessible, seemed a viable option to taste the essence of a far-away remote land surrounded by untamed nature.

I embarked on a cruise from Maligne Lake – a boat trip that revealed the ongoing metamorphosis of my sensations to me unlike any other.

My mind at the time was untrammeled by convention, and could listen to the inner flux.

The postcard-perfect Maligne Lake and Spirit Island, which is part of Jasper National Park in Canada (a UNESCO world heritage site) filled and flooded me with inspiration. I was drowned in their poetic impressions.

A delicious evening at Fiddle River restaurant in Jasper!

The wonder of the wilderness and the respite of remoteness which we saw and felt at the Spirit Island in Maligne Lake literally made us less conscious of hunger and thirst.

We simply forgot to take our lunch that day. When it was afternoon and we were preparing to return, we realized we need to eat something.

But to our astonishment, all the restaurants were closing. So without wasting any more time, we decided to drive to Fiddle River restaurant in Jasper.

And you know what, it was our best decision. A beautiful day ended with a winner dinner!

Address: 620 Connaught Drive (Upstairs), Jasper, Alberta, Canada  T0E 1E0 Website: Fiddle River Restaurant Timings: 5 pm – 9:30 pm

A beautiful day ended with a winner dinner! #Travel #Food #ExploreCanada #Jasper Share on X

Canadian Rockies from Banff Gondola!

Notification alert 🔔: Real-world has a secret magnet to attract our mind and soul and is more powerful than any virtual world’s algorithm that optimizes to gain our partial attention.

After a week-long trip to the Canadian Rockies, I realize this truth now, even more, as I am re-entering into the world of social media by virtue of my profession.

Although I am back, my heart is still reminiscing the views of the Rockies while riding up the Banff Gondola.

It was akin to floating amidst beauty. The music of the guitar played by a musician at the top of the mountain that evening during the sunset festival is still surpassing the sound of my keyboard.

I feel I am still listening to it live. The resplendent Rockies at the time of the sunset made my eyes content to its brim.

Now, when I am writing these lines in my diary, my mind’s eye is still marveling at the scene of the setting sun over the Canadian Rockies.

A cruise on Lake Minnewanka in Banff, Canada!

The night was starry, and the moon was half-crescent. I cuddled up beside the bedside window inside a wooden chalet to witness the night’s grandeur.

But slowly, the starry sky lulled me into sleep. The next day, when the night departed and the sun made its grand entry, I woke up and witnessed a magical morning slowly unfolding.

The Canadian Rockies afar were shining in a silvery glow. The dewdrop on a green leaf was reflecting the morning glory.

And I was slowly sipping the cup of hot coffee. The spark of aliveness everywhere ignited the romantic traveler in me, and I decided to go on a cruise on Lake Minnewanka in Banff, Canada, by Pursuit.

Every day at night I pull my blanket up to my forehead to cut off all possible lights coming from the modern world and crest towards dreams.

During my trip to the Canadian Rockies, I didn’t pull my blanket at night because the internet and appliance rich modern world took a backseat, and a dream-like reality, set in an idyllic location, encompassed my whole existence.

The soothing sounds of water from the rivers and waterfalls, smells of berries and flowers, and scenes of refreshing greenery all around rendered my days delightful.

Every time I saw the beautiful birds in different colors flying cheerfully from spruce to pine and resting on a pebble in a tumbling mountain stream, I felt an urge to relinquish the lure of a comfortable modern life and embrace wilderness for the rest of my life.

While I am still on my zigzag way, pursuing the diagonal between reason and heart, let me present you with chronicles of the Canadian Rockies as I witnessed them in the beautiful Banff and Jasper National Parks in Canada!
