Lake Louise

On our way to Lake Louise, I saw some sceneries that reminded me of the Drielandepunt in Netherlands. Drielandepunt is where the boundaries of Germany, Belgium, and Netherlands meet.

In Lake Louise, the view is absolutely breathtaking! Glaciers on the mountain make the panorama picturesque. A truly sight to behold!

nice background 🙂

freezin cold!

After an hour or so, we headed back to downtown and searched for the Devounian Garden. Unfortunately, it was already closed. Chinatown was the other option, however, the shops are also closed.

We all decided to go to the mall to grab a bite and walk around a bit. When we are about to go home, we bumped into James classmate and best friend, Jedd. The two six-year-old kids run towards each other with open arms then stopped abruptly. 😀 That surely elicited laughter from all of us.

Jedd & James

We all thought they’re going to hug like they haven’t seen each other for a million years.  The truth is, they just saw each other few days ago.

It’s a good way to end the day…  Gotta snooze now. Another exciting day tomorrow. Mwwwwwwa!

Nearly seven (7) years ago,  a scholarship from the Netherlands Fellowship Program paved the way for me to travel to Netherlands (a.k.a. Holland) for free (see travel for “free” article for more details)!:D  It never occurred to me that I will be able to follow my father’s footsteps because he also went to Netherlands through scholarship when I was a baby. Is it fate? Hmmm…

I must admit, it’s one of the defining moments of my life.  Meeting and gaining friends from all over the world helped me see and understand things in a broader perspective.  🙂

I can’t wait to visit Netherlands again (this time, I vow to visit one of the “coffee” shops!) and other Euro Countries in the near future.

Banff

A jump start to a new, bright and sunny day! It was raining yesterday so we just roamed around the mall. I did not do much shopping because my pocket is still bleeding from all the money I spent in that US Visa application (see related article -> denied).

Nevertheless, I did indulge myself with food as well as bought bedding, duvet and comforter for my new place. I’ll be moving to my new cave in a few weeks time. Wohoo!

my comforter. hahaha!

Today’s itinerary includes a visit to Banff National Park and Lake Louise. We are kinda lost at the moment and I have no idea on which direction we are going. I’ve let RJ use his iPhone to check the road that we need to take. I kinda suck with geography thingy, so, I just sat back, enjoy the scenery and start writing.

By the time that we’ve found the Banff National Park, there’s already a long queue for the Gondola (Cable Car) Ride. Thus, we opted to look around for a bit and look for souvenir items.
