About the time this scheduled post makes its appearance, M and I should be on our way to the Province of New Brunswick, said to be the Gateway to Atlantic Canada. We have about a seven hour drive from Portland, Maine to the place where we’re staying in New Brunswick. We’ll be the tired and confused looking people arriving later than we’d like, but you take what you can get when it comes to affordable flights.
I have no idea how often or even IF I’ll be posting. There is so much we want to see and do that our itinerary is almost impossible. It is impossible, but that’s because we plan too much and do what we can. Sometimes one thing doesn’t work out so it’s nice to have another thing planned just in case. Time, weather, and inclination will decide if, when, and how often I’ll be blogging. This will be a good opportunity for me to practice cutting back as that is something I must do when I return. That said, it’s not unusual for me to post more than once a day if it’s a slow (bad weather) day while traveling. I may do that privately this time around as the main purpose of it is to help me figure out my photos when I return home.
I do have one scheduled post set up for 8 June as part of the TLC Book Tours. Want to know more? Click on the link, and stop by on June 8th to read the book review I was asked to do.
Thank you for visiting as I take off for parts unknown (to me). On this trip I will be somewhere near Alma (New Brunswick), Dingwall (Nova Scotia), Moncton (New Brunswick), and Bar Harbor, Maine. If you happen to be near any of those areas and would like to meet up, leave me a note and I’ll get back to you if/when I can. I would have arranged all this before leaving, but life got busy and our itinerary is so ambitious that I was afraid it would be hard to fit anything else in. My husband was another consideration in that equation. He’s been very good about meeting blogging friends from around the world (two when we traveled to England, and several here in the U.S.), but I suspect he still thinks this online friendship thing is kind of weird even though he ought to know better by now.
Safe travels, Robin!
Have a great trip, Robin!
will enjoy walking with you through New Brunswick when you share 🙂
Have a great trip, Robin! I’ve always wanted to go to that part of Canada, and I look forward to your photos,
Beautiful kitties, Izzy and Bella. May your trip be safe, wonder-filled, and fun!
Josslps@gmail.com hoping to meet up with , if that works for you, somewhere in beautiful Nova Scotia. Or you can call 902.362.2151
Have a wonderful trip! We can’t wait to read all about it. Bar Harbor, Maine is one of my favorite places; you’ll love it! I’ve never been to New Brunswick or Nova Scotia though… 🙂
Wish you were coming a little further south – like Boston. Maybe another time…
Have a safe and wonderful trip!
Have a great trip.
While you are gone, I hope to get caught up with all of your posts … life got away from me, too.
Enjoy! And explore! (We’ll be patient – not at all demanding – except to insist you have a good time!)
New Brunswick! How fun, Robin! I hope you have a wonderful trip. Heading off on my own trip downstate to see my parents and family next week. Smiling now, thinking of all that you’re doing and enjoying along the way.
How exciting for you! Bar Harbor is an amazingly beautiful place – I hope you get a nice weather day when visiting there.
I do hope Izzy and Bella don’t miss you too much while you’re away. Isn’t it exciting, the anticipation of an upcoming trip, and planning way too many things to do, to fit into the days? Safe travels, Robin. 🙂
Thank you, thank you, and thank you for all of your good wishes and comments. The wishes worked. The trip was wonderful and the travel parts were smooth and mostly easy. 🙂
[…] If you wish to see more from the trip, please visit my old blog, Life in the Bogs, and do a search for Thursday Travels. It was an after-the-fact travelogue of sorts that I didn’t get around to finishing. I still have a ton of pictures from that trip that never made it to the old blog or this blog. You can also follow along with the posts I made as we traveled, beginning with this one. […]
