Banff, Canada (August, 2004)

Banff was a breath of fresh air, both literally and figuratively. Nestled way up in the glorious Canadian Rockies, we questioned why “purple mountains of majesty” didn’t make it into any Canadian national song. We hiked Tunnel Mountain on a number of occasions, but don’t raise an eyebrow – it only takes an hour to get to the top. Nevertheless, the view was incredible, especially on the windy cliff or during a sunset. One of the highlights of our trip was definitely the Perseid Meteor Shower. In the dark and clear skies, we saw over 100 shooting stars. And, of course, we had a fantastic time performing for the Canadian crowds.
