As you may have been able to tell from Instagram, Facebook or Twitter – we’re in Canada – Edmonton, to be precise and boy is it an amazing city!

We’ve been so busy pretty traipsing through the city in search of fun and to take in as much of the sights as possible (before we head off to Jasper) and even as I speak, I’m running a late for breakfast (which is thankfully in the hotel so I can get to it very quickly) but I just wanted to share some photos from our time so far!

You can see some more stuff on instagram stories (I’ve got a Canadian sim card now so I should be able to snap /insta story as we go along) but seriously, this isn’t your average city vacation. Rather than ramble on, let me show you why I’m saying this…

      It’s crazy how much the landscape changes between summer and winter – we fell in love with the whole region! You should definitely head over in Winter (we are already thinking of heading back in Summer)

  • I think it’s safe to say that it’s more than beautiful 🙂 – your photos are incredible!! I visited Jaspar in May 2015 so can’t wait to hear what you guys think of it – I was super lucky with the weather actually as it was around 21C which is rare for that time of year. I also saw a lot of bears but they should still be in hibernation right now 🙂 Maggie xxx

    • HandLuggageOnly

      Ah, thanks so much Maggie! We’re having the most incredible time! We’ve fallen head over heels in love with Edmonton and Jasper!

      No way!!! Ahhhh, would love to have seen some bears! You’re right about the hibernation (but that didn’t stop me constantly checking over my shoulder for a sneaky little bear!) Ha!

  • I just got back from Edmonton!! My boyfriends from there so we spent the holidays with his family! Will be moving there in the next year! Love these pictures. I went to the ice castle in the night and it was so pretty with all the lights. Did you try the ice slide?

      • Right!! Glad you guys had fun. Also, if you’re still there, be sure to check out some cool places: The Sugar bowl and the high level diner are some AMAZING cafes. The cinnamon buns in the high level are literally amazing. Also, my friend is the executive chef at an amazing restaurant called Vivo, if you feel a bit fancy, defiantly give it ago!
