It’s time for a big move for my wife and I. We’re leaving Calgary and moving to Toronto. It was something that we planned for a while and now it’s happening. We just wanted to be closer to our family during this hard time. While I am excited for this move, I’m going to miss Calgary.
The past five years that I have spent in Calgary were amazing. Yes, there has been some ups and downs. For example the oil crash here in Alberta, but we were able to enjoy our time here. Here are a few things that I’m going to miss about Alberta.
1.Calgary Stampede – If you want to experience being a cowboy for ten days, the Stampede is it. It’s a celebration of Alberta with live music and cultural events. My favourite was the many different foods to eat. Everyone should do this event once.
2. Jasper, Alberta – I love this ski town! I recommend coming here for the Dark Sky festival.
3. Banff, Alberta – It might be a tourist town, but it’s the perfect place to get away.
4.Drumheller, Alberta – All I can say is dinosaurs. Here is a link to a blog that I wrote about this town.
Time went by fast in Calgary with the friends that I made there. When we first arrived in Calgary, I didn’t think we would have the kind of relationship that we had back home. Boy, was I wrong. I was able to find people who I could confide in, and they could do the same with me. These friendships are what I will miss the most living in Calgary.
I’m sad that I’m leaving Calgary, but I am excited for our new journey. I know I will always have a home in Calgary and I’m grateful for that.
