Best Summer Ever: The 5 week honeymoon – Atlantic Canada

06 Aug

New Brunswick

We left for Moncton in mid-June and connected with Philip, a great friend we had met in Korea who had returned home a year before us. He lives in an amazing heritage home with no one around for kilometres, so we did what should be done naturally in a place such as that. We partied.

After a few days we hit the road with Philip and went to the seaside town of Shediac, where I had spent many of my summers growing up…

In Saint John we had a night of Roller Derby and an impromptu DJ set in some pub.

PEI

We didn’t spend much time there, so we just saw a few sights and gorged on seasonal seafood, artisan cheese, and Cow’s ice cream. SO GOOD. PEI is a great place to get fat.

Nova Scotia

I have a couple of friends who are also global wayfarers, who had happened to be residing in Halifax. Maria and I had been floating Halifax as a possible place where we might like to settle upon our permanent return to Canada, but neither of us had ever been there. (We’d just heard from everyone about how awesome it is.) Toronto does nothing for us, Vancouver is too expensive, both of us like the coast, and Newfoundland doesn’t have everything we’re looking for. So we spent a couple of weeks in Halifax getting a feel for the city, and having a look around the coastal vicinity.
