Can you remember your first travel experience?
i have the memory of a goldfish, so it’s a no from me, but one of my most vivid childhood memories comes from this very spot. the very first time i saw lake louise, i was a 10 year old frumpkin who rocked pink denim and superstore overalls. i still remember being prodded awake after passing out in the car during a 10 hour road trip, and being dragged to this view. it was literally so gorgeous that my mind couldn’t compute the colour. i had no idea what i was looking at. that marked the first time i saw something so beautiful, i was straight-up confused.
a few weeks later, on the 1st day of school, we were tasked with the (super tough and important) task of journaling what we did that summer. without hesitation, i drew out these pristine mountains and this sparkling lake, with the caption “beautiful view” because i had no idea what else to call it. i was not a bright child 😂
who would’ve thought that frumpy pink denim girl would one day grow up to capture & describe “beautiful views” for a living? i’d like to think i’ve gotten better at it, but feel free to knock me down a couple pegs if you disagree! 🤪 lake louise & banff will always hold a special place in my heart because of this soppy story, and well, it also looks like this, so....... 🙌🏼🇨🇦💖
