Calgary Part One: Downtown

I took as many photos as I could of my trip to Calgary, Alberta. Follow 
me through the photos that capture the many fun adventures I had...

View of Downtown Calgary from the hotel room at The Marriott

My Fast Food Dinner: Chicken Combo with Chickpeas, Roasted

Settling in to the hotel, with a hot Tim Horton's Green Tea in hand. 
Exhausted from a long and busy first day of sightseeing, walking, shopping,
walking, eating, walking, hoping trains, walking...and more walking haha

Looks like you had a great time! Also, looks like fast food isn't always unhealthy. :)

Looks like they are without snow ... just like us on the prairies. It is pretty brown here.

Looks fun!!!

Before heading up to Banff for our honeymoon, my hubs and I spent a few days in Calgary. I have a picture laying on the clear floor in the tower. We also hit up the zoo because we are cool like that!

I've never been to Canada - it's really cool to see Calgary! I hear they film a lot of American films in Canadian locations.

Looks like you had a wonderful time exploring the city and eating those scrumptious street foods! Sometimes, I also go out for a stroll and buy some popcorn outside. It would always amaze me to see those popcorn popper machines bring out the tastiest and crunchiest popcorn that I love.
