The Australian Christmas...

Bumps in the road to snowville...

I wanted snow!

Arriving at Spokane airport, we got our first taste of the Northern type of Christmas cheer. But it wasn't until we headed north towards the Canadian border that we got our first hints of a proper white Christmas. I had seen snow before on various occasions, and had even lived in a place where it snowed during winter (Blue Mountains, NSW). But this was to be something different - a white Christmas!

We spent a great Christmas in Calgary, followed by a visit to Banff and then back to my brother's town. We also stayed with them for New Year's, when we had an "e party" (we had to dress up as something starting with E. I dressed as an emo:
|Emo me - my hair was made out of a rubbish bag.|
All in all, it was a great few weeks, and I hope to repeat the trip many times in future!! For the next few years though, while I try my best to limit my travelling, I will just have to make the most of the beach at Christmas. ;)
