T–4: Let's Take A Look at my "Home" and Edmonton

Today you get to see holiday photos of me, even before I have even started the journey. In this article, I would like to let pictures speak rather than words, which is why I have divided the impressions into several galleries. But a few basic info about Edmonton must be:

Capital of the province of Alberta

  • Just over 1 million inhabitants

  • Home of the Edmonton Oilers (NHL) and the Elks (football)

  • Time difference: - 8 hours

Here are first impressions of Edmonton and its sights:

River Valley

The Saskatchewan River meanders through the city

I was particularly impressed, and I admit a bit overwhelmed, by the River Valley, which along the North Saskatchewan River is the largest connected park system in North America. With a length of 48 km, 11 lakes, 20 parks and 22 canyons, it is 22 times the size of Central Park in New York.

My Accommodation

Google Maps Route Downtown Airbnb

My Airbnb apartment is located 2 km from the venue. Keep your fingers crossed that I can borrow a bike from somewhere. The proximity to the park will certainly not be a hindrance for my morning jogging rounds. : )

What do you say? Looks pretty cute, doesn't it?

Tomorrow we will take a closer look at the venue.

Ciao for now!
