The next stop on our road trip was Prince Edward Island.
We crossed the Confederation Bridge (the longest in Canada) and had lunch in a small and colorful fishing town, Victoria-by-the-Sea. Then, we headed up to the capital, Charlottetown, where we stayed for two nights.
New Brunswick is not the most active province of the Maritimes, but it is undoubtedly beautiful. We spend there three days that were just the right time to see all that we wanted in Fredericton and St. John’s without running out of things to do.
This is just a quick announcement that from now on, I’ll be collaborating with Hamaca Tropical Tours, a tour company that specializes in providing different expeditions across tropical Latin America.
I’m not going anywhere and will keep writing in here as often as I can, but if you want to learn more about where to travel in Latin America, I’ll be writing weekly posts for them to tell you about the best places to go!
After our three days in Halifax, Ryan and I rented a car to start our road trip around the Maritimes. Our next city to visit was Fredericton, but first, we wanted to make a stop in Peggy’s Cove, Lunenburg, and Hopewell Rocks to get to know places outside the capital cities.
Last summer, Canada turned 150 years old. That was a good excuse for Ryan and me to take a trip to the East Coast. Though Ryan is Canadian, and I’d been here for more than three years, neither of us knew anything eastern from Quebec, so we decided to buy a ticket to Halifax and rent a car that would get us to St. John’s, driving through the beautiful sceneries of the Maritime Provinces.
The sun was still hidden when Jorge, our hot air balloon pilot, told me and my flight
companions to gather around him so he could explain to us the security procedures for
the ride. Silence reigned on the Mezquital Valley, located in the state of Hidalgo, México,
and we couldn’t hear a single sound apart from our voices.
Morocco. Just the word takes me back to the exotic adventure I had that week of summer of vibrant colors and spicy smells. I miss the markets, the gardens, and now that we’re waking up to the 5°C Canadian mornings, I miss the Moroccan sun SO MUCH! But while I find a chance to go back to that beautiful country, all I can do now is rejoice in the fantastic memories.
I’ve been reading a lot about other people’s trips to Morocco, and I’ve met a few people that have been there with whom I can exchange anecdotes about camping in the desert or exploring the market of Marrakesh. But it’s funny because until now, no one has talked to me about how getting into any vehicle in the country is an adventure itself. I thought maybe sharing my experience would prepare you for your trip there, or at least make you laugh for a few minutes.
