Calgary Calgary International Airport, YYC

Large metropolitan area for museums, festivals, parks, shopping.

Calgary has a population of 1.2 million. We host the ‘Calgary Stampede’ in July each year, plus many other events and festivals.
An hour’s drive from our home brings you to the foothills, and a bit longer brings you to the Rocky Mountains. I often drive to the mountains, hike, and return the same day. Banff is a world-renowned destination.
Calgary itself has interesting museums, interactive fun spots, the ‘Calgary Stampede,’ horse shows, various festivals, and an active night life. It’s easy to use our c-train to get around locally, but renting a car is necessary for the out-of-town destinations.

The map marker is a general indicator of the local area only.

Greetings from Calgary, Alberta, Canada!  Calgary hosts the Calgary Stampede each July, as well as many other festivals from June to September each year.  My house is an hour's drive away to some great Rocky Mountain hiking trails, and for skiing and snowshoeing, world-class places are just as close.  We have a small lake in our community, about a 3 minute drive away. I'm 57, so not retired yet, but I like to use my vacation time each year to go somewhere new.  I enjoy hiking, swimming, scuba-diving, and seeing new cultural and tourist experiences.  In February/March of 2018, I visited New Zealand and Australia (thanks Frances/Colin, and Terence/Ann).   I prefer a hospitality exchange at this point, since I have adult children living with me so am unable to offer an empty home.  I stated that I am a 'party of one,' but might actually be a party of two if one of my kids joins me.  I'm happy to exchange with a single person or a couple. My home is a 4-story split level.  Lots of stairs.  We also have a very friendly Golden Retriever. You would be staying in a large bedroom on the top floor, complete with a view of the Rockies, a private ensuite and balcony.  I'm open to either acting as roommates while you're here and I'm there (cooking separately, doing our own thing), or somewhat hosting and being hosted.  Can't offer a car, sorry.  But would do my best to advise, drive, go along with, stay out of your way - whatever you like!
