Early in the morning on day 5 we will be leaving the safety of family to start our adventure on our own. We will start by flying from Toronto to Calgary, picking up the car which we will be using of the following 10 days and then drive to Banff after shopping for supplies.

Here's the route we'll be taking:

Still planning

Crossing the Rockies (Day 5 - Day 12)

Talked to my aunt today (Grace)(my mum's cousin actually and looks too young to be my aunt!) who lives in Toronto. We have discussed how we will be spending the 3 days in Toronto and probably we'll have 1 day for Niagara falls, one day at the cottage of one of my mum's other cousins where we can do some canoeing and one day in downtown Toronto. Wow!! These promise to be an amazing 3 days. And apart from all this I am looking forward to meeting the whole family!

Grace also said that there'll be the Exhibition going on at the time so we may go too :)

After these days in Toronto, we'll be flying to Calgary.
The following is the road we'll take to get from Calgary to Vancouver. We plan on doing this over 6 days. Won't mind if we take a day longer.


Ps. We found a kennel for our dog Jack (black cocker spaniel) today. Really sorry to be leaving him behind for so long. But at least the owners seem to love dogs very much and I trust they will care for him well in our abscense.
