Today’s travel feature is on my country, Canada. We’ve driven coast to coast on separate car camping trips. Thank goodness those days are over! I loathe washing dishes while camping and having to trot out to the bathrooms. However, what fantastically beautiful scenery we have!

My favourite national park is Banff, where the gorgeous glacier water runs along the Bow River. 

It makes me think of the Ice Blue Bud Trollbead. 

Another favourite  body of water in the Banff National Park is Lake Louise. It gets super busy in the summer with people coming from around the world to see it. I was very lucky as a university student to be able to attend the Banff Centre for the Arts several times. We’d have master classes, attend concerts and spend the weekends going for hikes in various spots. These photos I took when we went with the kids, though. 

Another great place to visit is Prince Edward Island, over on the other side of the country. We happened to see Anne of Green Gables while at Cavendish Beach!

Our second favourite national park in Canada is Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland. That’s the camping trip that pretty much did us in. Some nights the temperature went down to 10 degrees and it was pouring rain. Complete misery! But, the landscapes were incredible. 

So, I wanted to make a bracelet around the Ice Blue Bud glass bead. All beads are by Trollbeads.  Starting at the top and going clockwise, are a Turquoise Striped Agate, Dot’n’Dot, Silver Mountain, Neverending, Ice Blue Bud, Smile of Stars, Moonlight Bubbles, Smile of Stars, Traces, Neverending, White Steel, Sunbeam and Ancient Palace. The lock is the new Fish Lock.

Traces reminds me of a sandy shore at the beach. 

This bracelet with Monday’s Iceland inspired bracelet go well together. 

Here’s a last look at the Canada inspired bracelet. Next up tomorrow is Finnish Inspired, with an all Ohm Beads bracelet to celebrate the bright colours of Marimekko. I’d love to hear if anyone has traveled to these parts of Canada!
