|Before we leave Calgary today we visit the
the speed skating stadium used for the Olympic Winter Games of 1988.
In this stadium the Dutch female speed skater Yvonne van Gennip won
three gold medals in 1988.
After seeing the stadium from the outside and inside we drive a
little further to the ski and bobsleigh area of the Winter Games of
As soon as we leave Calgary, we can see the Rocky
Mountains in the distance. This is where we're heading. Our
destination today is Banff, in the middle of those Rocky Mountains.
But before we arrive there, we spend lots of time in the Rocky
Mountains, take some touristic routes, have a lot of breaks and go
up one mountain with our tour bus to make a photo stop and enjoy the
fantastic view. We have lunch in Canmore.
In the afternoon we come to Banff, drive around this town and
drive past the famous Banff Springs hotel.
Tomorrow we'll spend the whole day in and around Banff.
