    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.

    Monday morning, I will be boarding the bus to go as Halifax to catch my flight to Amsterdam. I'll be met by my cousin Eli at the bus/train station, and then go and visit my Aunt Geraldine & Uncle Harold, before going to my cousin Linda's for a bit of Thanksgiving dinner, as it's the start of the Thanksgiving weekend in Canada. Will write more about it once I arrive in Halifax, before I have to board my Icelandair flight ...

    Alexander Keith you make great ale!

    Today we visited Halifax on our way to Cape Breton Island. Deryck , the girls and I enjoyed this excursion even in the rain. The Citadel national historic site which is home to the 78 th Highland regiment and is built in the shape of a star in the 1800s. It took us about 21/2 hours to view the exhibits and take in one of the demonstrations. We decided to take a walk down to the waterfront. On our way down Sackville ...

    ... the tide. Then picking up star fish and having them stick to our hands.

    And I loved going down that road when we first got to Nova Scotia that took us to the middle on nowhere! And how we went even drove through a creek. That was awesome!

    It is a once in a lifetime experience, watching the waves crash over the rocks at Peggy's Cove. It was really cool, but scary imagining what it would be like in a storm.
