Canada was definitely a fun adventure. It came to an end so much more quickly than I realized. Eight weeks flew by so quickly!
My final moments were spent in the lobby at the hostel. I talked to Steph while waiting for the taxi to pick me up. (The night prior, as we both struggled to pack our belongings into our luggages, she said, “It comes to a point where it’s pretty much like Tetris, isn’t it? You just stuff everything wherever you can fit it.” Haha. This was very true. And before I left, we were discussing Facebook and the Internet and other random topics.)
Before I knew it, it was time to go. I was abruptly yanked out of an engaging conversation, and at that point I had to come to terms with the fact that it was time to leave.
I want to take the opportunity to share that this eight-week trip cost me a little more than $3,000. (It would have been less than $3,000 had I not rented a car in Banff on impulse and if I didn’t invest in a tablet [which I later on realized I could have lived without]. This includes flights, food, pre-trip expenses, and others).
In the grand scheme of things, I don’t think $3,000 was a lot of money for the experience. I’m open about my expenses because every single cent I spent was absolutely worth it and because I hope other people (who haven’t yet and maybe who haven’t lately) will make time to travel. I’m still new at this, but it’s my intention to travel whenever possible.
Sometime in the future, I’ll provide a rough break down In a separate post/page of categorical expenses for my Canada trip so anyone interested can take a look.
Thanks to everyone who has been reading!
