“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” ~ Bill Bryson

As the hubby and I are living temporarily in an international assignment (2-3 years), we have compiled a list of “Must Dos!” while living in Calgary.  I hope you enjoy our journey as we mark off as many items as we can!
