5 Things To Do in Banff

 5 Things To Do in Banff

Adventure, fun, and excitement are some reasons why people enjoy going out and experiencing the outdoors. It is one way of communing with nature. The closer you get to the environment, the more you understand the value of life. Though most people consider going out as a breather for all the stress, still, the mountains and everything around it is there to give us the joy of being outside and liberated.

Speaking of wild and free, and independent, a country with so much more to offer when it comes to outdoor and nature, Canada has an appealing view for every adventurer. A town in Alberta, Canada, brings you not only in the wilderness but also lets you see parts of its historical past.

The town of Banff is one of the many unique towns. Aside from being a resort town, Banff is one of the towns settled inside a National Park. The establishment of Banff was in 1883, after the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Later, the Banff National Park was instituted, having the town included in the entirety of the park. In 1990, Canada included Banff as one of the municipalities. It was also the first to be incorporated inside a national park.

Since the town is inside a National Park, do they have Banff homes for sale? I couldn't imagine living in a place with all the beauty and sceneries of nature around you, but if it is permitted, I sure do want to own a property in that area. And I can enjoy these different activities.

Hike the Mountain Trails in Summer

If you're seeking the thrill of the mountain, Alberta, Canada, is one of the places to visit. And the town of Banff is the one to discover for yourself. It is the rocky and mountainous part of Alberta. In winter, its icy glacial part beams a perfect scenic view, but when its snowy part starts to melt, its wilderness portion springs the beauty of the mountain. It is the best place to enjoy a good trail hike.

Many adventurers visit this part of Banff for its fascinating trails and the wilderness part of the park. So, if you're in for a long perspiring hike, this activity is perfect. You can pump up yourself with a good fresh air of the mountain and at the same time enjoy the natural beauty of nature.

Wildlife Viewing

The preservation of National Parks is because of their beauty, value, and importance. But mainly, National Parks are sustained for their ecosystem. The wildlife and the system that they have to maintain the balance of nature. The preservation of the living creatures inside of these parks.

If you love taking photos of animals and different creatures, you can spend a day or two or even more in Banff National Park to see these lovely mammals, birds, and other creatures that are endemic to Banff. Maybe you can find your next Photo Piece for the National Geographer here in Banff.

Trail Around on Horseback

If you're back is aching on long walks, you can still enjoy the beauty of Banff by borrowing the back of the horses and ride with them. Banff got these one or three-hour tours around the places of Bow River with a river crossing adventure to experience.

You get to enjoy the view even more from a higher perspective than hiking.

Go Back in History

If remembering the past is a memory lane for you, you might not want to consider including this activity in your list of things to do in Banff. But if you're an old soul who is fascinated with history and past stories, then you might want to feast your eyes and ears on this.

The Banff Park Museum is where they showcase the natural history of western Canada. According to some articles about the museum, it was a log cabin constructed in 1903. I think it is the oldest museum in Canada. Imagine the preservation of historical items, displaying the diverse flora and fauna. It is considered a heritage site of Canada.

Canoe Your Way in the River

If you love canoeing, you can always try the adventure in the water by trailing the Bow River riding on a canoe. Honestly, I haven't tried canoeing, but, if visiting Banff will let me experience it, then it would be captivating.

Aside from these five activities to do in Banff, you can still have more things to do. All you need is the courage to be adventurous.

One of the most precious virtue of man, "giving". Few people value this character traits and good to know that Robinsons Supermarket is one of the initiator of this kind of activity with their Robinsons Supermarket "Give" Promo. It inspires people to share the wellness of giving.

With the belief that everyone has the capacity to give and of course to receive as well. The value of giving and receiving is the core value that inspires their shoppers to do the same. Though it was through a promo, still, giving is something to be proud of, especially when you know that the things you will give will surely help the needy.

The gift of health, as Robinsons Supermarket culminates its Route to Wellness campaign with its “Give” promo. The program aims to show people exciting ways to win prizes, get freebies, and share their blessings with other people. 

The Route to Wellness year-long campaign encourages Robinsons Supermarket customers to switch to a healthy lifestyle by providing nutritious food options to Filipino families through exciting and rewarding promos.
From November 1 to December 31, 2017, the Give Wellness promo will reward customers with a P100 off coupon when they spend P3000 worth of items inclusive of P500 worth of purchases from participating brands such as Enfagrow A+ Four, CDO, Selecta, Purefoods, Del Monte, Ceelin, Kojiesan, Promil Gold, Unilever, and P&G.
To officially kick-off the festivities, Robinsons Supermarket invited shoppers and their families to the “Give Wellness” event at the Eastwood Mall Open Park in Libis, Quezon City. McLisse graced the Event, that makes Patrons of Robinsons Supermarket enjoyed the program. McCoy De Leon and Elisse Joson or McLisse had fun during the games with their supporters and gave a few songs to thank Robinsons Shoppers.

Since giving should be taught to kids, our family was glad to be part of the kick-off of Robinsons Supermarket because our kids was able to learn the value of giving and at the same time enjoyed the activities.

Both our kids enjoyed the games offered in one of the booths. They also enjoyed creating their Cookie design and also the activity where they need to get gold and silver strips to be counted as part of the donations that Robinsons Supermarket will give.

We explained the game to our kids and the reason why they are going to do it. Right after that the kids were very eager to do it because they know the reason why. Our kids know that we were also foster children before that's why our family is very much close into this kind of activities. We know the feelings of being a foster child. This way we can impart to our kids the value of helping others.

Through the event’s polar express theme, participants had a merry time hopping onto a train ride full of games and prizes, activities and freebies. With the goal of giving back to the community, they took part in a game where they collected golden balls with corresponding values to help Robinsons Supermarket reach its P100,000 worth of donations to World Vision, a Christian, relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.

Game of Drones 1st flight at Circulo Verde

10:14:00 PM

If you've heard the phrase "toys for the big boys", well, this one is truly for the big boys. Not only that this is played by grown ups, but also maintaining it is costly. This is not your typical toys in the toy shop. What's more interesting is how it was developed and made into a sports out of being a hobby. The birth of an exquisite adult sports entertainment.

Who would have thought that the idea would be materialized and become the first drone flying sports. Thus, giving to the birth of Game of Drones which showcased its first flight at Circulo Verde.

We all know that Circulo Verde just launched its first signature pump track and bike playground here in the Philippines. And with that area great for outdoor activities, the revitalized industry player introduced yet another signature event which captured the imagination of millennials and kids of all ages. Everyone present at Circulo Verde looked skyward and witnessed a spectacle of lights and drone feats- The grandest yet - Game of Drones 1st Flight.

Circulo Verde, Ortigas & Co.'s 10 hectare master planned mixed use community in Quezon city was set aglow with the spectacular sight of drones flipping in the air. After dusk, the place was ablaze with lights coming from the lit tracks where the quadcopters coursed through,prompting spectators to squeal in delight & excitement.

Circulo Verde oferred the perfect venue for Game of Drones 1st Flight where drone professionals, hobbyists & amateurs had the whole day for themselves to race - and learn a few tricks using the remote-controlled aircrafts.

The games were open to two drone categories: the Spec Class or Beginners for pilots using a quadcopter with 35 LiPo and 5" diameter props and Open Class or Advance for pilots with quadcopters that weighed a maximum of 50 lbs. The Game Arena was divided into several areas with different races for drone controllers, namely Time Trial, Drone Sprint, Rotocross, and Drone Photography.

But Game of Drones was not exclusively for drone enthusiasts. The country's biggest and grandest drone spectacle also enticed families and friends to bond over raffles and other activities while served with first-class entertainment throughout the jampacked one-day event. Everyone from kids and teens to adults also took advantage of food booths and other stalls that sold sports apparel from sponsors and concessionaires.

It was definitely air supremacy ablaze as everyone enjoyed the spectacle leaving a collective question which begged to be answered: What will Ortigas & Co. offer next?

A movie for the kids which is the "Minions", then for the teens which is the "Pitch Perfect 1", and lastly which I personally love is the "50 First Dates".

Of course aside from the movies Cream-O made sure that there are treats for everyone that is why CreamOholics were given a chance to have their own personalized cookies in the "Cream-Ofied Creations" booth. So what was the Cream-Ofied Creations booth all about?

First, they chose their favorite Cream-O Variant (Vanilla, Choco Fudge, Deluxe, Crinkles, Chocolate Chip, Cookies 'n Cram and Choco 'n Berries and dipped it in rich chocolate (milk, dark or white), peanut butter or whipped cream. They added extra color, texture and flavor to their creations with a wide variety of toppings, and even drizzled onsome delicious chocolate, caramel or strawberry syrup.

Aside from the flicks, guests participated in other fun activities, such as the "Unlock the Popcorn Stash" and "Guess the Movie" trivia game. They also captured moments and personalized their images through the "I Love Cream-O" photo booth. Furthering the excitement were live acoustic band performances and raffle draws, where lucky winners won Fujifilm Instax mini cameras and Robinsons Gift Certificates.
