You should all know by now that winter holidays have given me some of my best travel memories to date. Even though it’s freezing cold outside, there’s snow on absolutely everything, and you can hardly feel your face, there are so many outdoor activities you can do during the winter time.

In 2014, we decided to forgo our usual Christmas traditions of sunbathing, camping, visiting relatives, and opening way too many presents; and instead spent our time in the wintery depths of Lake Louise, Canada. We had always wanted to experience a white Christmas — you know, like you see in all the movies; and we
