As a traveller and book purist, I abstained from getting a Kindle for a bizarrely long time. I always liked book shops, libraries, the smell of a new book, and the weight of a book in my hand – how could a ‘book’ on a screen possibly replicate that?
No matter when you visit, there is absolutely no shortage of things to do in Banff. This tiny town sits in the middle of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and is spectacularly beautiful virtually all year round. Despite its reputation as a launchpad for ski slopes and hiking trails, there’s a lot more to do in Banff than outdoor adventures to suite people of all ages and interests.
If you’re reading this, you must be planning on travelling by yourself and omgosh I’m so excited for you and you’ll have the best time. Ever. Ever ever. Buuut you’ve probably realised there’s a lot of information to wrap your head around (when’s the best time to book flights? Should you get an international money card?) – it can be overwhelming, so I’ve broken the hard bits down for you to make it all a bit easier to digest.
