This final day exploring the beautiful PEI was very bittersweet indeed. Truly I couldn't have imagined a more perfect time spent in such a beautiful place. I truly feel blessed to have visited this Island, and am dreaming of the next time I am able to come here. In addition to seeing Green Gables, going to … Continue reading Final Day on PEI
A trip to PEI wouldn't be complete without a stop at the quaint Avonlea Village. This is an ode to the village that Anne lives in. It's a fun, whimsical place to visit. There are some shops, restaurants, the schoolhouse L.M. Montgomery taught in, and the historic Long River Church. It is a fun place … Continue reading Avonlea Village
Before our trip, one thing I was excited to see were the iconic Red Sandy Shores of PEI. I mentioned them in my post about our arrival to PEI, and while that was exciting, actually enjoying them on the beach was even better. When we went on our Matthew's carriage ride, we talked about going … Continue reading Red Sandy Shores
Any Anne of Green Gables fan can imagine the sheer excitement we had upon visiting Anne's iconic house. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. You are able to take a self guided tour of the house, Lover's Lane and the Haunted Woods. I can't even fully put into words the inexpressible joy we … Continue reading Green Gables

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.

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." Well, as soon as we saw these, we were very hopeful to spot a moose at some point during our drive. We lovingly referred to our non existent moose … Continue reading Boris, Where you at?!
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
