Project “1 Year On” Nova Scotia

During the last few days on the east coast of Canada I road tripped around parts of Nova Scotia with my good friend Jackie. She took me to places like Peggy's Lighthouse, Luneburg and the Digby Tides. As well as a few other local spots where she grew up. It's always nice to have a local show you around, it gives you a unique perspective that is hard to gain from being an outsider looking in. Nova Scotia is a beautiful part of Canada, It's probably not given enough credit, with sites like Whistler, The Rockies and Niagara Falls it quickly drops down the list of must see places. I'm glad I got the chance to see it when I did.

Thank ya to Jackie and her family for the amazing hospitality! After eating out pretty much the entire trip it was nice to have a few home cooked meals :)


Project “1 Year On” Halifax

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.

Thank you
