    The hostel is part of a cafe pretty central in town. The rooms are spacious and comfy. The hostel staff is fun and helpful and even though the kitchen is small, there is always someone to have a chat and laugh with, makes it the heart of this hostel.

    The cafe was great, really good food at a reasonable price, the salmon and egg breakfast sandwich was delicious! Most of the staff were helpful, and the beds were comfy, but the lock on my locker was broken, and a poor attempt was made to fix it. It's just a fifteen minute walk to the Citadel and town, and whilst the area is a little strange, the hostel felt safe. Could do with more bathrooms, oh and a better cleaner for the ones they do have.

    Finally stopped into the Loose Cannon, a traditional Scottish Public House to finish the night. We need many of these in the states. A proper pub where it's possible to hang out and converse. Not filled with douche bags/"bros"/hipsters simply interested in getting hammered. Music at a reasonable volume. A proper drinking ...

We feasted on burgers, corn on the cob and spinach salad. We then adjourned to the living room to watch playoff hockey. I am not doing well in my hockey pool. I need L.A. to win the next 4 games. Montreal and Boston are doing well for me, but I need to have my Western ...

    The climb to the top was a bit steep a zillion steps and with us only having short legs it was even harder, but we survived albeit puffing and panting, then we heard the cheering as the runners appeared and the kids struck up a tune as the runners ran past, we went into the Citadel and started to have a look around when a Guide informed us if we went quickly over the other side of ...

    ... about the Bieber thing, unlike Anne Frank we are not Beliebers.

    We had a relaxing time in Halifax in part as the train to Quebec (which takes 18 hours) only leaves every 3 days. This meant we either had to spend 36 hours in Halifax and catch a train or add an extra three days in town. We chose the latter to give us a chance to catch up on some sleep but also to get our feet firmly established in Canada (as mentioned above). Our ...
