Moraine Lake is one of our favorite sites to visit in the Banff National Park area. The view is simply breathtaking. Totally worth the extra 30min drive from Banff. Go check it out, you won’t regret it!
Did you also know that these scenic mountains were once on the old 20 dollar bill? Cooool
I would never would’ve met Tram if it weren’t for a youth group that she and I were in. I was from Toronto, she was from Calgary. In 2005, our youth group had a national conference at the UofC in Calgary. We didn’t actually meet at this conference nor did we meet after the conference.
After the conference a bunch of youths from our group hung out at Chinook mall. Behind the info booth where the T-Rex skeleton stands is where I first laid eyes on her. I had a camcorder in-hand which I creepily used 4x optical zoom to get a better look. Hehe. Her cuteness overwhelmed my senses. I started asking my friends if they knew her and if they knew her name. They told me her name was “Tram Tran”. I’ll admit, I giggled when I heard her name. But a name like that only amplified the cuteness that I saw in her. We were all by that T-Rex skeleton because we were all trying to figure out where to go afterwards. I made it a point to go wherever this Tram Tran was going.
We decided on a steakhouse called “Smuggler’s Inn”. Unfortunately, due to the order that everyone arrived, we both ended up sitting at opposite sides of a very long table (thank God 4x optical zoom, lol). It was a fun time, but little did anyone know that all I wanted to do was meet her. I wanted to hear her voice and make her laugh. As we all made our way out of the restaurant I thought to myself, “nice, this is my chance!”. But much to my disappointment, her ride was waiting for her outside asking her to hurry out. She made a quick dash out of the restaurant with her head down and without saying bye to almost everyone. I found it odd that she did this but for some odd reason I thought it was super cute, and the mystery of her would linger in my heart.
