During my travels, my compensation for free accommodation for one night, was for me to write a daily travel diary. Of how I got to my next location, the people who would host me, the food I was offered and everything else. Below you find the archives of the highly extensive reports. Know that English is not my native language and most reports were written at high speed around midnight. Enjoy.

Jasper National Park --> Vancouver (train ride)

After a night at the Chateau Jasper, it was time again to leave Jasper. I had breakfast in the hotel restaurant and got ready for my departure. The Viarail train was scheduled to leave at 3.15 pm for a 17 hour trip through the Canadian Rockies, arriving in Vancouver tomorrow morning.
