I have a story about my entire trip to Yellowknife and how I had so much positive
by getting to visit my sister, brother-in-law and nieces, but then had so many issues with Air Canada that I am going to tell you all
On Friday, July 30, I was scheduled to fly from Toronto to Calgary, then onto
Yellowknife with a two hour layover. I got on my flight in Toronto to go to Calgary and then suddenly I was told that we had to stop
off in Winnipeg due to mechanical issues. Once we arrived in Winnipeg, we were told it would be six hours before flying out to Calgary.
This meant my connecting flight was gone. The next Air Canada flight to Yellowknife wasn't until Sunday evening. There were two other
flights but they were on Canadian North, flying out on Saturday and I was put on the second one on Saturday afternoon.

The last place I visited prior to the Covid-19 pandemic was Las Vegas and Los
Angeles. I took 5 days at the end of February and beginning of March 2020 to get away. This was going to be my first of 4 trips that
included a trip to Yellowknife, NWT in April, then Europe in May to various places including London, Cologne, Berlin,
Frankfurt, Munich, Barcelona, Porto, Lisbon, Algarve and Paris, followed by a trip to Montreal for the F1 Grand Prix in June.
With the pandemic though, I have spent so much time at home and not out anywhere
that I desperately needed a trip anywhere, so I chose to visit my sister, brother-in-law and nieces in Yellowknife.
