’08 CANADA & U.S. PHOTO SERIES, PT3

CALGARY

Hummers, shisha and new friends!

The good thing about this trip was that I was slowly transitioning into a solo lifestyle. The first stop being a week with some of my best friends in Toronto, then a few days with some old friend in Montreal and now I was meeting family friends in Calgary who I had never met before. Keiran was an incredible host and we hit it off straight away. After a quick drive through the city we headed straight to a bar and didn’t leave until we had sank close to 15 drinks each. It’s as well I did continue the drinking as through the course of my trip I would need all the practice I could get!

FINAL THOUGHTS

I could sure get used to travelling around the world. I’ll admit that the only reason I came here was because my Uncle suggested his friend’s son (Keiran) was happy to show me around and it’s usually those places were you no little about that turns out to be the best experiences!
