This blog follows the unlikely adventures that I – Kate – will embark upon during my summer co-op at the Banff & Lake Louise Tourism office in downtown Banff’s Visitor Center.

As a student of Canadian history at the University of Victoria this job will help provide me with the perfect platform to effectively bring the local history to the fore while making it easy to understand and interesting to hear. With any luck, I will be able to start chipping away at the stigma of being dull commonly applied to Canadian history and show visitors to my town that there is more to Banff than just hikes and bars.

If you, dear reader, are interested in absolutely any of these things then stick around! I promise I’m sometimes funny and most of the time I know what I’m talking about.
