Bus it was. Three days, no waiting. Best $127 dollars I've ever spent.
A long, girly and teary-eyed goodbye from my BFF at the Vancouver bus terminal I boarded the sleepy bus to Calgary. That was my first big stop. We were scheduled to arrive in Harper's Canada around 10 a.m. It was six at night by the time we left Vancouver and most passengers were already passed out, equipped and huddled in their sleeping bags, taking up two seats. Lucky for me there was a pair of seats left at the back, and I didn't have to wake up a groggy student traveler and let them know our long night wasn't gonna be as comfortable as we hoped. The sun had set by the time we were out of the city and I started to nap, taking one last look out the window and said goodbye to B.C, sad that I'd be missing the view of bountiful western Canada. Oh well. Next time.
