Who says you can’t be an international traveler ? You don’t need to fly to see the world. My most recent adventures are heading up the coast of Maine all the way to Nova Scotia. This is an area we travel to often but this time decided to go a little further than our usual stop in New Brunswick. 

To break up the long hours I usually stop over in Bangor, Maine it’s a quaint area ,we always stop at Sea Dog Brewing for dinner and a walk along the waterfront. The occasional times we don’t quit there we continue on to St. Andrews,  a little fishing village with whale watching tours , charming shops and a historic park and Lighthouse. If you have followed my Facebook page you have probably seen photos I have posted in the past. If not, search this blog for New Brunswick and you will find  St. Andrews , Saint John and St. George .

With our final destination Halifax still over a full day away, I found an additional place to stop over. Moncton which has several hotels was booked full so we stayed in nearby Shediac the Lobster Capital of the world. Since it was raining and we had a few hours to kill before check in we made a pit stop at the Moncton Casino.

Early to rise again and head to Nova Scotia. 

The Journey through Canada is fairly scenic and the roads are not overly congested. You also will find many information stations and Large Truck Stops to help you along the way. 

We make another stop along the way to Peggy’s Cove another beautiful little fishing village and spend a few hours checking out the shops and walking the rocks along the lighthouse . 

These rock formations are made mostly of granite.

Time to finish our journey to the Waterfront in Halifax and grab a bite to eat on the boardwalk. There are stores, pubs,hotels,restaurants,and museums all in walking distance . 

There are many boats you can go aboard or ride around the harbor including Theodore the tugboat.  There a several different bus tours available as well . We took a city tour that lasted about 2 1/2 hours and showed us the Shipping ports and the various historic buildings.  Eventually we went to The Fairlawn Cemetery where many of the  bodies from the Titanic disaster are buried.


We  also visited the Citadel that rests on the very top of the hill in Halifax. You can walk , we did but be prepared for a steep climb. The entry fee is reasonable and you can tour on your own or with a group. They have Drill Demonstrations, Rifle and Cannon Firing Demonstrations, Sentry Changes and much more. There is also an Army Museum and WWI Exibit.

That is all for today’s adventures, I will continue again in a few. Want your own adventure let me know.
