Travel Blog

Hi – This is a travel blog about Canada I did a few years ago, which I am hoping to re-activate in the very near future ! Thought I’d just explain that I’ve imported two other blogs into this one, one from Typepad and one from Blogware, and whilst it sort of works, it needs […]

Thoughts From The Road2

Thoughts From The Road2

Am conscious that this is somewhat self indulgent, but as I’m largely writing it for my own benefit, I tend to think that’s ok ! I thought I was going to have to cheat a bit and do this when I got back to England, but owing to some remarkable efficiency, I’m currently sitting in […]

And Finally …….

And Finally …….

Passed loads of really great signs for roads, villages, creeks etc but wasn’t able to stop and photograph them all ..

Almost loathe to write anything, just put a load of photos up, but …

It is now technically ‘the fall’ something to do with equinox’s apparently !

Didn’t get to Fundy proper, will do that tomorrow, got stuck looking at views like this and….

Spent the last few days in Halifax, which I really liked.

From One Beautiful Place to Another

Left St Johns fairly early Wednesday morning and did all day drive over to a tiny little town called Stephenville, about two hours away from the ferry.

Viking Trail 2

Viking Trail 2

Made a decision to head back south, rather than spend a couple of days up there – there didn’t seem a huge point in hanging around – I thought I’d rather get to St John’s and spend time there instead. It did mean not going to Labrador, but I sort of felt I’d just be […]

The Viking Trail That Wasn't !

The Viking Trail That Wasn’t !

Must admit, I fell into the tourist trap a bit of thinking there was a viking experience to be had by following the trail, and whilst it turned out to be very vikingless, there was some breathtaking land that made it very special.

Where Sydney meets New Jersey meets Scotland

Where Sydney meets New Jersey meets Scotland

Woke up this morning to find this monster outside my bedroom window, well almost.

Hello Nova Scotia

Hello Nova Scotia

Am in Sydney Nova Scotia, as opposed to Sydney Australia, which I think is where I would rather be at this point in time, though actually its still their winter, so maybe not – very wet, very very foggy and misty, but very beautiful in its own charming way.

Hello New Brunswick

Hello New Brunswick

I have to admit a large degree of ignorance around all the Atlantic Provinces, not entirely sure what they were, let alone where they were. I did know about the ports of St John and Halifax and I knew the urban myth about a couple going to Sydney Australia, who ended up in Sydney Nova […]

On the Road Proper

On the Road Proper

Arrived in Bathurst, New Brunswick this evening, hitting a new time zone I hadn’t heard of before, Atlantic time, after a whopping eleven hour drive up from Quebec, straight after a ten hour drive I did the day before from Toronto up to Drummondville, just outside Montreal.

Back to Canada !

Back to Canada !

Arrived Pearson Airport, Toronto Wednesday evening, having flown again with Air Transat, who seem pretty good – although amazingly enough the plane didn’t have any screens in the back of the seats + don’t eat the pizza ! Meant I spent most of the flight either sleeping or talking to a very chatty Canadian next […]
