Day 12 Banff, Alberta Cailin and Candices Cross Canada Adventure

Day 12 of our Cross Canada Adventure was probably one of our favorite days of our whole Cross Canada Adventure as we got to spend in it Banff, a place neither of us had visited before but instantly fell in love with. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Banff, Alberta and Montreal, Quebec were my favorite cities and I think Candice’s too. On Day 12 we did a bus tour with Brewster Canada that toured us through “downtown” Banff, took us to the Gondola on Sulphur Mountain and also included a boat cruise on Lake Minnewanka. Following the tour we finished off a great day with friends and a few drinks. Watch the Day 12 video below, I think it is going to come in close to tying Day 8 in the “best video of our trip” awards. Let us know what you think!
