The Big City

A travel blog entry by travelswithduke


... and the second (to Sydney) largest deep water port that remains ice-free all winter. We went to the waterfront and since the rain had ended took a Harbour Hopper amphibious ride around the historical downtown and the harbor. We got to see a lot in a short time. Some highlights were the Citadel, the wharf where Titanic bodies were brought in, major shopping areas, ...

... Housewives and then to bed.

14th Sept.

Got up at the usual time, had breakfast and then thought we'd brave the capital city of Nova Scotia and negociate the drive into downtown. We eventually found a 2hr parking spot and headed to the Visitor Centre on the harbour front. Here we caught up on a few emails and got some info of what to do in the few hours we had there. We had a wander along the ...

Enjoying Nova Scotia

A travel blog entry by eskimo


... Patrick needed to take some bits and pieces we wanted to leave behind to the EZ and also to disconnect the battery and turn off the ELT – something we hadn’t had time to do when we arrived. As Thursday’s weather was damp and chilly, it was the ideal day to combine this with a trip downtown.

    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.
