You Won't Be Disappointed

“Budda Bing Shrimp”- appetizer- $12Cdn.  Doryman Pub and Grill, Cheticamp NS. Served grilled with spicy/sweet glaze. “Order 2!” “Lobster Mushroom Caps”- appetizer- $21.50Cdn. La Coast, Shediac NB. Served in garlic-butter and with garlic-bread. “Awesome” I’m not much a reviewer, probably because I’m long-winded. But occasionally I will do a little free promo work because certain […]

Seagulls And Schooners

   There was plenty of down-time during our road trip. Time spent sitting sipping a beverage, with no place to be and no time to be there at. I would call it leisure time. The only real decision to be made was what and where to eat. Some places we were didn’t offer many choices, […]

Down With History

   The road trip to Canada’s eastern provinces, aside from going somewhere we’d never been before, was to see first-hand the birth place of our nation. To learn more about the region and its history. This meant stopping at historical sites, museums, and roadside plaques. Historical sites and museum give you a heads-up long before […]

The Millennial Toilet

   Home. Our Atlantic land journey has been completed. A trip that saw Honey and I drive a little more the 12,000kms, over 30 days. An epic journey, for both of us. When you add distance, to number of days of travel, then divide that by the number of times I got lost, then multiply […]

Turn Left In One Kilometre

   If it’s Wednesday this must be…? Where am I??? This is day twenty-two and the scheduled plan went out the window five days ago when we decided to go gypsy, cancel all our reservations from yesterday forward, so we could return to the West Point Lighthouse Inn and Museum in Prince Edward Island for […]

  Everyone travels different. Most seem to travel from one destination to the next destination, without ever noticing what they missed. It’s how I have always travelled, until this little odyssey. Driving through the Atlantic provinces of Canada has been at a slow ‘mosey.’ We’ve stopped to smell so many roses that my allergies are […]

Nature vs Nurture

   Anyone who knows me well, knows what a nature fanatic I am. My dad used to take us out for a Sunday drive, which was always into the county side. He would be pointing out animals and birds, and we three kids would be scanning the area to see whatever it was first. I […]

   Day 1– You would think that after months of planning, bookings, and conversations regarding our Gypsy experiment, we would be ready to bolt first thing in the morning. Oh, we bolted… three different times! We obviously weren’t as prepared as we thought we were. First it is the dirty windshield to clean, back to […]

Where's I'm to...

I’m on adventure and unlike sitting on The Playa, my hands are on the wheel and not on a keyboard. So I thought I would share a few of the places I’ve been in the last week. This is the Hotel Acadia in Quebec City. This is where I paid the bill for our hotel […]

   The road trip was the solution to an awkward dilemma. When they were first informed that I was ill, my brother and his family from Ottawa, wanted to come out and see me immediately. My initial response was “no way.” I looked like crap and felt worse. I didn’t want to see anyone at […]
