Wagging Wednesday – Rolo’s Roadtrip

bannerLast weekend we took a late honeymoon to Sparkling Hills in Vernon, BC. I happened to win this trip through McMurray Girl Magazine last year but scheduled it for May 2014. Rolo came along with us, normally the hotel only allows dogs under 25lbs to go but due to i like to say “rolo’s professionalism” he was approved to go to the hotel. The package we won included a 3 night stay, complementary breakfast, 2 dinners at the peakfine restaurant, use of the kurspa, 2-$150 kurspa vouchers and 2 welcome drinks. It was an amazing hotel and so ritzy! Sad to say but not even our beloved Jasper Park Lodge can be compared to this hotel. It really was amazing to sit and relax after a very busy first part of the year, I think this should probably be a yearly occurance *wink wink*
After the very long 1300 km drive south through Edmonton, Calgary, Banff, Revelstoke then  we arrived in the okanagan (not far from where I grew up actually). We drove up a big 20km winding hill and arrived at the fabulous Sparkling Hill Resort, and wow what a sight it was! This resort is owned by the Swarovski family…yupp just liek the crystals. and you can tell as soon as you pull up to that resort because there was swarovski crystals everywhere! Apparently over 10 million dollars worth of crystals all around the resort. On the chairs, on signs, hanging from the roof…everywhere!

Here are some photos from our trip to Sparkling Hills!
