New Society…NS…Nova Scotia, you know. Although I’m actually circling East Canada. Should start in 15 days, on the 25th of June.
A pre-planned two-week trip got cut in half. A much-wanted solo, post-graduation (B.Sc.) trip turned into a celebrating-with-parents trip. A friend told me to think of it as a rare time for bonding and such. Yep, I agree. By the way, you should read The Tail End by WaitButWhy.com: http://waitbutwhy.com/2015/12/the-tail-end.html. A (very) visual representation of human life and of how much of everything we have left…like how many pizza slices we eat before dying. Confused? Just go read.
Here’s a revised travel plan:
QUEBEC: Day 1
Trois Rivières: Basilica Notre-Dame-Du-Cap Old Quebec
- Kamouraska (first french colonists in the late 1600s + South St. Lawrence River)
NEW BRUNSWICK: Day 2
- Hartland bridge over St. John River (longest covered bridge in the world, 391 m, built in 1901)
King’s Landing Historical Settlement (fictional anglophone village recreating 1780-1910)
- Hopewell Cape/Rocks, Bay of Fundy – Elephant Rock, one of the most famous of the Flowerpot Rock formations at Hopewell Rocks, split on Monday morning. – Mar. 14, 2016!!
PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND (maybe): Day 3
- $70 ferry, $46 bridge…hmm.
- PEI National Park
- Canadian Potato Museum (yay!)
NOVA SCOTIA: Day 4 + 5 + 6
- Cabot Trail – Cape Breton Highlands National Park
- Peggy’s Cove
Day 6 + 7: Return + wiggle room
I’ll post pictures right here. As long as I’m still alive, of course.
We dropped by the Magnetic Hill near Moncton NB, and didn’t have enough time to visit Hopewell Rocks. Maybe next time! We got home right in time for the Canada Day fireworks at 9 pm.
It was a very memorable trip. Strangely, I feel like it changed me. I’m not completely sure in what way, yet.
