Any Anne of Green Gables fan must take Matthew's Carriage Ride around the Lake of Shining Waters. We were absolutely frigid the whole ride, but it was beautiful, glorious, and every kind of wonderful. Our "Matthew" was a great conversationalist, and made our ride very enjoyable. They had several options for the carriage rides, so make … Continue reading Matthew’s Carriage Ride & The Lake of Shining Waters
A trip to PEI wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Anne of Green Gables Museum. We headed here our first day, eager to learn all we could about L.M. Montgomery, and this beautiful Island that we were falling in love with already. If you've got a keen eye, you probably noticed the arrow pointing … Continue reading Anne of Green Gables Museum
If you find yourself in Prince Edward Island, I cannot recommend Prince County Bed and Breakfast enough. We had a hard time booking a place on PEI. When we researched, we knew we wanted to splurge and stay somewhere Anne themed or at a B&B. When we were planning our stay, there were hardly any lodgings with … Continue reading Prince County Bed and Breakfast
I wish I could accurately put into words the joy and excitement of reaching Prince Edward Island. To access the Island, you have to cross the Confederation Bridge which links New Brunswick with PEI. It is an 8 mile long bridge that bears a hefty $46.50 toll when you leave the island. As we approached … Continue reading First Glimpse of P.E.I.
Leg 4: Québec City- Prince Edward Island- 9 hours and 5 minutes As we were driving through Canada, we started noticing road signs for "Moose Crossing."

We arrived into Québec City pretty late, and attempted to find our lodgings for the next two nights. Québec was where Christina and I realized that I am much more comfortable of a traveler staying in a hotel, and not some other type of accommodation. I can't remember how we came across our lodgings, but they were fine, … Continue reading Québec City, Québec
After our deluxe breakfast, we checked out of our fancy hotel room, and headed out on the road again.

This year marked the second year in a row I was not in America on the 4th of July. Not that I'm complaining... I'll take Venice and Niagara Falls over a 4th of July celebration back in Tacoma any day. We were really excited to be spending the 4th at Niagara Falls. They have fireworks over … Continue reading Fireworks over the Falls
I'm almost ashamed to say it, but sometimes I forget I had the pleasure of seeing Niagara Falls. I forget because our stay in Niagara Falls was literally such a whirlwind.

After our memorable pizza lunch in Buffalo, we were headed to the border to cross over into Canada and see Niagara Falls. As it was the 4th of July, we weren't sure how long border crossing would take. Luckily for us, everyone was leaving Canada, so our crossing didn't take very long. Maybe 20 minutes … Continue reading What NOT to say to Customs Officials
