Calgary consisted of a perfect three nights spent with one of my favourite people. We didn’t really do a lot, but ate a lot of food and drunk some Canadian beer.

The highlight of the trip for me was buying ingredients for sandwiches and sitting in the sun at Prince Island Park. I was highly amused to see the abundance of Pokemon Go players–this was the first time I had been in so much as a town since May–but enjoyed seeing people living their lives.

Another standout was the Calgary luge. I’d been luging in New Zealand when I was eleven and it was a lot of fun to relive the experience of letting gravity pull my go-kart-like vehicle all the way down the track.

But by far my favourite part was the company.
