East Coast Wrap-up

So we have survived almost 3 weeks living in our little Firebus! Overall, we had a fabulous time – things were a bit fast paced, but we were able to fit in a few visits to friends along the way, as well as see and experience lots of new things. It was the perfect little trial run for...

Pay it Forward (i.e....

Today we got up early so that we could head off on our last leg of the journey towards home. We said goodbye to our friends as they set off for work as we finished packing on the van and getting ready to go. Once we got going way we made it not more than 3 or 4 kms before trouble hit. We...

Today we packed up and said good-bye to Louisbourg, NS and headed to a new province – Prince Edward Island (PEI).  This also means a good portion of today would involve driving – so we set off early.  Unfortunately though, we picked quite a day to travel as it was really windy,...

Two nite, one free (...

So last night our plan to head to PEI was postponed as we were having ourselves a great time right where we were. Since we stayed for a second night at the park the third night was offered to us free. We decided to take advantage of this and stay put for one more night. Our new friends...
