    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.

    ... some very interesting museums and met some nice people. Kate neglected to take a photograph of the hostel or our dorm but she did get some good ones of the harbour. And of me, although I always look well in photographs. I was rather pleased with the flight over as I had my own pillow and my own seat so I was able to snooze for most of the time. I hope for similar conditions on all future flights. On our first day in Halifax we went to the Natural ...

    ... the early towns were it thrived and they built a fort to protect it even though it never fired a shot in anger or even was threatened. the fort today is known as the Citadel and it fires a cannon every day at midday,which believe you me is loud even in down-town.

    The day was cloudless so we decided to go for a walk up to the Citadel and have a look around the area, but first i rang the Tour company again and hoped that maybe they had a tour left as it ...

    ... and many sailboats. It was a beautiful site and it was easy to see why UNESCO had listed this town and why the tourist information centre had recommended the long drive. We didnt have long to hang around as the day was moving along so we walked a bit further and took many more photos before getting in the car and driving to the opposite side of the harbour. We got some pictures back at the harbour then breezed out of town bound for Halifax. Thankfully we ...

    ... We walked down to the souvenir shop that had floaty pens in the past. They still had a few but it was not a new design. However, since there were only 5 left and photoramic, I bought them anyway. We then climbed around the rocks, staying pretty clear of the vicinity of the lighthouse because there was a bagpiper there. It really is such beautiful scenery. I got Pete to 'crush’ the lighthouse (yeah, like ...
