Heading to the Maritimes 
22nd-Jul-2009 02:53 pm
Hi everyone! Welcome from Ottawa, the capital of Canada!

I'm standing across from the Parliament buildings (they have free internet access in the information centre). The bus tour was long. Got caught up on the sleep I didn't catch last night ;)

We've made stops in Kingston, the former capital of Canada (which now houses the Federal Penitentary) and now Ottawa to visit the Parliament buildings and the Royal Canadian Mint. We're off to Montreal tonight and will be heading to Fredericton tomorrow.

EDIT:  Montreal. After a visit to the Olympic dome and the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montreal, I am now accessing the internet from the bar of the Sheraton hotel. Wake up call at 6am in the morning. One of the joys of tour-bussing... Nova Scotia tomorrow.

Enjoy your island holiday!

I have a cookbook from the Maritimes, given to me by a Canadian friend.

Thanks. Anything interesting in the cookbook?

Lots of nice seafood. I'm hopeless at getting out different cookbooks unless it's a dinner party. I tend to stick to fast and easy otherwise.

Me too. The shorter and less complex the better.

Ooo, lucky you! Have a relaxing holiday. :)

Thanks. I don't know about relaxing on a bus tour ;) but I certainly hope to enjoy it. I've never been to the Maritimes before.

X-D have a great time. I'm obviously too hungover to be reading LJ: I thought you said the bus journey was wrong ;-)

It's about the same thing ;)

That's a heck of a lot of travelling you're doing. I hope the stops are long enough to see things.

I'm another one looking forward to the photos.

From tomorrow, we'll be hitting some of the most scenic spots in the Maritimes.
