On the Road in Canada – Saint John

About a week ago, we arrived in Halifax, Canada with Condor. During the months of May – September, the rates are the best. You can get a round-trip ticket for 620 euro, when booking early.

Since we arrived late in the evening, we booked the airport hotel for one night. The next morning, we started our road trip through a relatively small part of Canada (Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) with a detour to Maine to visit a friend.

First we went to Saint John, where we attended the Korean wedding of a former student of mine.

Reception

We spent the night at the Econolodge Inn in Saint John, which has a splendid view over the hills and lakes. The proclaimed deluxe breakfast, was fairly meagre. The rest was very good, such as service, amenities, etc.

Saint John itself seems a bit like an industrial town in some parts. We enjoyed a good dinner at the restaurant Reversing Falls.

Our third night we spent at my friend’s house in the village of Westfield, just outside of Saint John. This is a very quiet bedroom community with a magnificant view over  the Saint John River.

Saturday morning, we pulled out for our next stay in St. Andrews.

48 Hours in London

It has been only 168 hours since I left London and I am already working on my next trip to Nottingham in late June.

Sunday morning and early afternoon, it was still sunny when we left our hotel to walk to the Gherkin.

When we got to the Gherkin, we had to show our passports and go through security.

The wedding was held on the 39th and 40th floor and it was fantastic.

There was a  Buddhist ceremony, Sri Lankan dancers, confetti, and lots of champagne going around. Unfortunately, we could only stay a couple of hours as we had a plane to catch back to Frankfurt.
