The Chevy Equinox Adventure is underway and we are so excited to start driving today!
Rocky Mountain Adventure; Day 1
We were greeted at the airport by Gary Sowerby an amazing and inspiring man that holds 4 Guinness Book of World Records. He has driven cars around the world, up Africa and South America before anyone even thought of it and when logistics were nearly impossible.
We are pumped to have spoken with him and his wife Lisa Calvi last night to hear all about their adventures and world travels. Lisa Co-ordinates everything alongside Gary and together with Jennifer Wright (media relations from General Motors) they are co-ordinating our week here.
Our evening consisted of getting to know our fellow bloggers and writers over a scrumptious 4 course dinner at Muse Restaurant.
Wine was flowing and the conversation was in full force. Our dinners consisted of Tomato Prociutto Spice Green Salad, Ahi Tuna Ceviche, Seared Halibut for me and Beef Tenderloin with Risotto for Dave all topped off with a dessert sampler for two.
Did I mention the white truffle popcorn that we were brought as a snack appetizer. Yes, we could barely walk after dinner, but we only had to go a short way to the hotel to sleep the night away.
We are joined by a photographer and writer from Outpost and another Blogger from the YummyMummyClub.
Once I have all of their last names and blog information, I will tell you more about them. For now, Chris, Drew, Alex and Leslie are a fabulous bunch of people that enjoy a great time and lead very interesting lives.
It is 6:00 am here in Calgary and we are sitting in our beautiful boutique room complete with towel warmer and fresh coffee service this morning.
The room is elegant and comfortable here at the Luxurious Kesington Riverside Inn locate on the Bow River and we could stay here for days right in the heart of downtown Calgary. Beautiful!
Time to Drive
We start driving today and can't wait to test one of these Chevrolet Equinox Vehicles. We saw them in the garage and are itching to drive ourselves to Canmore where we will be having a fun filled day of rock climbing followed by Canoeing on Lake Louise.
The Banff Squirrel is coming up to our next lodge for a little video interview and we are so looking forward to seeing Banff. So far, we are loving our time here and once we get into the Rocky Mountains…I don't think we will ever want to go home.
