Whisked away to Whistler

Hi friends. Before the week ends, I have promised myself to post about our recent getaway to Canada. It's true what they say, Canadians are nice! Wait, is that what they say? I thought I heard that somewhere...

Over the past couple of months, The Husband and I have been lucky to travel to new places for work. Most recently Whistler, BC. I'm not a cold weather fan, but Whistler was magical, picture Narnia. It wasn't even really that cold. We were lucky. How's the skiing you may ask? I didn't even go! Though I did partake in Après-ski or rather Après- nonski. We also spent the day at the Scandinave Spa. If you ever find yourself in Whistler, you must go here. The view was amazing. We also took the peak to peak gondola (with glass bottom see below!) from Whistler Mt. to Blackcomb Mt. I thought I might pee in my pants it was so scary. And I'm not afraid of heights.

Our last night in BC we traveled back to Vancouver since we flew out early. While not as glamorous as Whistler, we ate some amazing food (they were rated one of the greatest food cities in the world) and stayed at the best hotel. We scored a great price for it on TripAdvisor. I highly recommend it!

Now, I'll let the pics speak for themselves...


  1. Gorgeous pictures! I'm moving to Seattle this Summer and I'll be adding this to my list of places to visit!
