Driving from Ottawa to St. John’s

Over the last week I have been driving 3000km across Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland to kick off a summer vacation.  We took the opportunity to stop and see a few things along the way.

So many things to see in this country.

Quebec City was a particular surprise. It was a beautiful city in general, and the old downtown and historic district was much more impressive and bigger than expected. I could have spent much more time wandering the back alleys and enjoying cafes.

We managed to spend a day in Monteal, two in Quebec city, an evening in Fredricton and Antigonish, a couple nights camping in Gros Morne National park after taking the ferry from North Sydney, then booting it across the island to St. John’s.

The night in Antigonish was a game day decision due to torrential rain that made it dangerous to drive – we didn’t make it as far as we wanted to that day.
