I love Calgary. I spent a few years living in Calgary before I began travelling the globe, and it’s still another home for me every time I return. I have loads of friends there, and there is just a timeless awesome energy to the city. So obviously I had a spectacular weekend out and about enjoying the cities atmosphere. Really though, is there any other way in my daily life? I naturally tend to make the most of everyday, no matter where I am. So this weekend was no different. Oh heck yes. I stayed at the Hotel Arts, which has recently undergone some extensive renovations.
The update has made the interior very chic, modern, with fantastic amenities, and great service. On Friday I took in an extremely impressive ‘Cirque du Soliel’ show. I absolutely love Cirque. Prior to this, I have only been to one other Cirque show, which was KA in Vegas. The theme/name of this particular one was Kurious. With live Opera music, Scientist’s and Robots, the show did not disappoint. In fact it was just another Cirque amazement for me to check off the ol’ list.
This time around I enjoyed a pretty low key weekend in Calgary(in comparison to some crazy Calgary weekends) The weather was sweet and the sun was shining like a little gem; Well I suppose not such a little gem, rather a large one. I took the opportunity to bask in all its beauty, and walked in the parks around Eau Claire Market area, downtown.
I also grabbed a little afternoon sesh in Inglewood, it is hands down one of my favorite area’s in Calgary. Its trendy, retro, and has all the cool cat ambiance I could ask for. I perused some various shops – Inglewood has so many unique shops to check out. My first stop was ‘Rivas Eco Store‘. I seen Eco and I was right in there.
Natural, Eco, Health & Wellness, are key words in my life and are straight up my little nature valley! I ended up making a small pricey purchase of some Skincare and Hair products – Although for the quality of the ingredients in the products, I don’t mind paying the price. You only get one body, and caring for it is priceless.
Sadly though I have far too many hobbies on the go as it is, I just ain’t got time for more at the moment. Dang.
Funny enough, I never even knew comic book stores existed any more. Leave it to retro Inglewood to produce one though! I am not even a comic book person, however the novelty of the store was still there.
From plant shops to bead shops, there was a little bit of everything to be sussed out. Not a bad way to spend a day!
Well even though it was a short trip this time around, it was still as exceptional as always.
