I had made it to the most eastern point of my journey; Halifax. 7000km on road and rail across Canada had brought me here. Having just watched the movie 'Into the Wild' my little adventure seemed to pale into insignificance. But all I know is that I finally got the chance to experienced Canada and in doing so had the time of my life. Plus with more of Nova Scotia still to come I was in a good spot. "I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong but to feel strong. To measure yourself at least once. To find yourself at least once in the most ancient of human conditions. Facing the blind death stone alone, with nothing to help you but your hands and your own head." -Christopher McCandless
Perhaps one day soon ill get the chance to experience something so profound. But for now I will appreciate the warmth and comfort of a hostel bed.
