When Scott and I decided to move to Vancouver we had two options. We could sell all of our stuff and start fresh in Vancouver, which would allow us to fly, or we could pack up a van and drive. We chose the latter.
It would have been nice to leave Ontario, fly to Vancouver and arrive only 5 hours later, but then we would be arriving with nothing.
That would not have worked for me.
I was much happier with the prospect of a week long road trip and bringing the comforts of home with us. We didn’t bring too much. For furniture we brought our bed, we each brought our dresser and we brought a large chest that Scott’s dad made him.
We had enough for a full van!
Also I love road trips so that week was really fun! The only downside is that I got sick, which seems to happen nearly every time I travel. Hmmmm.
We spent 7 days driving and had stops in Thunderbay, Saskatchewan, Banff, Kamloops and a few other random towns. I absolutely loved the trip!
Not going to lie though, driving through the prairies was quite dull. Everyone told me I would hate it because of how flat everything is.
While I didn’t technically HATE driving through the prairies, there was cause for celebration once I started seeing hills off in the distance!
Even better? THERE WAS SNOW!
I adore snow.
I think it is so pretty and it always manages to cheer me up (unless of course I am snowed in and can’t get anywhere).
So to me this picture is a picture of pure love. The first hills after a day of nothing, and the first view of snow!
Have you ever driven through the prairies?
