Oh, Canada!


After watching this winter’s Olympics, don’t we all have that song engraved in our memory?  We’re off on another trip this week–this time to Canada. First stop is Nova Scotia, then Prince Edward Island, then back to travel Nova Scotia and the Cabot Trail before spending a couple of days in Halifax and then on to Montreal.  I checked the weather report–lots of rain.  Dave cheerfully noted “That’s why it’s so green!”  I don’t mind the rain–just hopefully not too much on the day we want to drive the Cabot Trail.

A note about this blog: My son Peter has helped me rework and tweak a few things on this blog, so it’s finally getting where I want it to be.  It has a static opening page (that of the heart-shaped map), and the navigation is done through tabs at the top of the page.  To read the latest blog post, head to “Blog.”  But if you just want a certain country, or trip, click on that tab.  Most of them are finished, and obviously there’s not much on the Canada tab, as it hasn’t happened yet.

Two quotes on travel, in order to start the journey off on the right track:

“He who has seen one cathedral ten times has seen something; he who has seen ten cathedrals once has seen but little; and he who has spent half an hour in each of a hundred cathedrals has seen nothing at all.” – Sinclair Lewis, on sightseeing.

and

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a cash advance.”
(from a bumper sticker)
