|Writing the first travel blog in the fifth wheel|
The day has finally come when we hit the road for our coast to coast to coast trip throughout Canada. We have put a lot of thought into this and basically taken all winter to plan for it. Not a detailed route or even a rough one but the principles. And we decided to travel east first, starting in Almonte just outside of Ottawa where we arrived in the evening of June 30st and will stay a few more days on the beautiful horse farm of our friends Pia and Alfons. Their hospitality is as generous as their farm and the area are breathtaking. Thank you so very much, Pia and Alfons!
After packing everything up and put it into storage we still had a lot of stuff to take with us. We had already driven the fifth wheel to Almonte and parked it there a few weeks ago. Now we had to fit everything that was left into the truck, pack up the cats and say goodbye to our friends. Then we finally were on our way, starting a new chapter in our lifes. And we are very excited about it. In the next couple of days we will plan the first leg of our trip. It will lead us through Quebec with the destination being New Found Land and Labrador. This rugged and wide open province is something we always wanted to visit. But we will take our time getting there. As you know, André is a real foodie and Quebec has so much to offer not only with regards to sights but also in terms of food. We don't have a time line set in stone and definitely will explore along the way to the coast. But for the next 2 or 3 days we are taking it easy, relaxing in Almonte and getting used to life in a trailer.
