Canadian Trip 2014 Day 5 - Vancouver to Jasper by Coach

It's goodbye to Vancouver and hello to Western Trail. We will be travelling to Calgary by coach in a 4D/3N tour and will be experiencing the Canadian Rockies.
One more Urban Fare breakfast before we leave Vancouver.
Thanks to Sook Ying for the meticulous planning of the entire travel. For those who are interested in this Western Trail can check with Key West Travel & Tours.
There were 22 of us in this tour coming from Singapore, Australia, India, South Africa and Brazil. Our first stop was a small town called Hope, a sister city with Izu, Japan. It's a brief 20 minutes stop.
The first touch down was full of eagerness I just couldn't wait to see places, Hope is well known for its wood carving with chainsaw you can see a display of these wood cravings throughout the town. I am impressed with the cycling culture in this country you will fail to see bicycles at every nooks and corners.
As the bus continued to move on we were kept interested in the facts of the rocky mountains by Jeff and at the same time some of us were busy shooting our cameras.
A lunch break at Aberdeen Mall, Kamloop after travelling 352km.
Mount Robson is the highest in the Canadian Rockies at 3,954m, a scenic view from Mount Robson Provincial National Park.
The joy and fun at the Canadian Rockies on a wonderful summer time.
The capacity of this coach is 54 passengers and there were only 22 of us, we could shift freely occasionally when taking pictures. Point plugs for electronic devices are available at every seat but not wifi.
We have travelled 794km from Vancouver to Jasper and checked in to Lobstick Lodge for a night. My salute to Rob, the coach driver for solely driven us the entire journey until Banff.
Let's have pizza and sandwiches for dinner. Til then good night and see you tomorrow.
