One day, I'll see each of these places.
I've devoted myself to putting together this bucket list of places I will visit in the future. Each day will have a theme of one place in particular. It will start with one post of a particular place and a brief commentary of my own regarding my wish to visit that place, and then there will be various pictures of that place reblogged or shared from Flickr. 366 days this year because it's a leap year; 366 places. A link to previous days and their initial posts is below. I do not take credit for any of the pictures used; they will all be sourced. For questions about my main or other blogs, please send me a message.
Leave a message in my ask box telling me your dream. I'd love to know.(:
How can one travel to the largest ski area in North America and not know how to ski or snowboard, you ask? For this view! Okay, extreme winter sports fanatics, I understand that there’s a lot more to the beauty of these kinds of places than just what you see.
But from a photographer’s perspective, the hike around Blackcomb, the gondola ride up the Peak 2 Peak chain, and the (bus) ride on the Sea to Sky Highway from Vancouver to Whistler…it’s all worth it!
My favourite part was definitely the village - it felt like a scene out of a movie, both during the day and at night. We almost missed the bus (on the way there too - stupid Skytrain) because we got so fascinated by how gorgeous the lights looked - we were there just a couple days after Christmas!
At one point, we finally realized how cold we were (mind you, there’s a picture of me spinning at the peak in just a sweater) and we went into a local coffee shop. The walls were covered in newspaper from all over the world - and that’s when I realized just how popular of a destination this was.
I now have this intense craving to learn to ski. I’ll be back, Whistler; both in the summer for some hiking, and in the winter for some skiing.
