This is not so much a travel entry as much as the documenting of an experienced which left me shocked, amazed, challenged, impressed and above all, on the ground and laughing in hysterics.

This experience was the celebration of my workmate Louis' birthday which happened in the Canadian town of Canmore on the night of the 18th of December. It was my 1st trip to Canmore (which I now call home) and a real eye opener to the partying abilities of the hardcore Canadian ski bum.

I'll keep the chat to a minimum as the pictures speak for themselves:

Work has finished and Louis is made to drink 5 shots of Jaegermiester.
