I was fortunate to meet 2 of the kindest people in Calgary and I wanted to say thanks to them... Firstly, Karen Martin (a friend of a very good friend) put me up for a couple of nights, let me take over her lovely flat and just generally spoilt me with delicious food. You are a star Karen! Also, the father of someone I met on the bus in Vancouver 2 weeks ago (!), Curtis Fitzgerald, showed me the sights, gave me food and maps and even inner-tubes. He showed me his beautiful house and I met his amazing wife and family. Curtis, your generosity of spirit is unbelievable and I really can't thank you enough.
