In honor of this most excellent holiday [insert dripping sarcasm here] I want you to tell me your favorite place you’ve explored. It can be a different country, a new neighborhood, an abandoned house, whatever, just share with your fellow explorers!
Last year I got the chance to explore the Banff Springs Hotel in Canada.
Nestled in the Canadian Rockies, it’s an imposing building with an unbelievable view. I read about its beauty and history before visiting Banff, so I was pumped to explore it. The supposed hauntings were an added bonus and the perfect excuse to walk around every floor. I’m sad to report that I did not find any ghosts, nor were we brave enough to ride the private elevators up to the top floor. It was, however, a great hotel with a great interior, friendly staff that left us alone to walk around, and a seriously magnificent view. It was the icing on top of an awesome vacation cake. If you can, I definitely suggest you take a trip there at some point. Stay somewhere less expensive in town and just take quick drive to the hotel. You won’t regret it.
So, where have you explored?
