Calgary travelogue picture
Calgary is a beautiful place with warm hearted people. It's nice being in this city of nearly a million inhabitants. I moved here in June of 1999 from my home country -- The Philippines. Summer is great, winter is a little harsh but you'll get used to it. Calgary is an attractive city situated on the banks of the Bow River and close to Alberta's spectacular Rocky Mountains. The Calgary Stampede is undoubtedly Calgary's best-known visitor attraction. This event, featuring a large parade and world-class rodeo, draws more than a million people each year. Other attractions, including the Glenbow Museum, Calgary Tower, Canada Olympic Park and Eau Claire Market, are great places to visit year-round.


Favourite spots:

That must be kind of a culture shock: Philippines and Canada. Are you happy in your new country?
