Lake Louise

View over Lake Louise, Banff

Last week I was in Canada. Phew! That almost seems crazy to think it now. With just 10 days notice I was welcomed onto the team at The Travel Hack, one of my favourite travel blogs, and straight onto my first assignment.

Together with Monica and Elle I spent 5 glorious days in Edmonton, a city in the Alberta province. It’s one of those cities that you wouldn’t necessarily think to visit or even have much of an idea about but will totally surprise you with everything it has going for it. It’s a city great for food, culture, festivals, adventure and shopping. But we’ll share more about that soon over on The Travel Hack.

For now I just wanted to share a few of my favourite snaps from our trip to just to whet your appetite for all the adventures and ideas we have to lined up.

About The Author

I am a multi-award winning lifestyle blogger, writer, public speaker and social media consultant. I want to share ideas on how to live a holistic positive life. This is about taking self-care seriously (but taking yourself with a good dose of humour). Because if you don’t take care of yourself you can’t take care of anybody else or the world around you. Rosalilium is about reclaiming self-centred-ness as a lifestyle choice that is honest, meaningful and kind to yourself. Making a change in the world starts with you.

    I grew up 3 hours from Edmonton (in Calgary) and half my family live there so I was REALLY surprised when I saw you were going there on a travel trip thing. Glad you had fun though… I’m not sure I’ve ever really done touristy things in Edmonton.

    Love how you girls travel together 😀 Beautiful photos too! I’m going to Ontario next month on assignment for Travelettes and can’t wait for that canoe-camping trip 😀

    So pretty! I’ve wanted to visit Canada for so long. One day, when I am rich and have no credit card debt. *dreams*

    This looked like such a fun trip. Canada is just my favourite place but I’ve never been that far inland – it looks super beautiful though. (And congrats. I saw the post for that job. You’re going to do awesome at it!)

    Wow such awesome pics Liz! I’ve still never been to Canada but heard so many good things and, let’s face it, the pics sell it! Looking forward to hearing more about your trip!
