    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.

He had kidnapped his girl friend's kids, and boarded the ship using the alias. Though he did died in the sinking, he managed to save the children and they were reunited with their mother following the sinking of the Titanic.

    plastic siding had shrivelled and melted in the intense heat of the fireball. The whole scene was like some awful Dante’s Inferno and yelled “Tragedy” on a scale beyond belief. One just hopes that the authorities get to the bottom of how and why it happened to prevent such a catastrophe from occurring again.

    Our next stop was Quebec City, the throbbing heart of French speaking Canada. We discovered an interesting ...

    ... lonely landscape, that would be pretty bleak come winter. If you love lighthouses, then the coastlines of Nova Scotia are something to add to your bucket list, and rightly famous for them. Being so wild and rugged there is certainly a need for them. Back in Halifax, I organised to meet up for dinner that evening with another Aussie I met on tour who is also doing a 12 month teaching exchange. She's really cool, easy to talk to and based in Calgary. She is also a ...
