Our Travels

2006 : "Up to the North"

Our first trip in the north east region.

We started in the Cape Cod area with a visit to Provincetown, Martha’s Vineyard, Plymouth, …. And of course a whale watch excursion in Provincetown.

Since the reasonable distance between New Bedford and Foxwoods, we’ve decided to have a look at the largest hotel-casino in the world especially for the Hard Rock Café.

On our way to Canada we made a stop at “Ben and Jerry’s” and “Vermont Teddy Bear Factory”, both in Vermont nearby the Canadian border.

PoeckyTravel Blogspot 2006In Canada we’ve visited 3 states: Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Montreal, Quebec and Rivière-du-Loup were the stops in Quebec. Montreal and Quebec are beautiful cities with both a rich historical background. In Rivière-du-Loup we did a whale watch excursion on the St Lawrence River. We’ve seen a lot of beluga’s, but because they’re so endangered, it is not allowed to approach them. So we only saw them from a distance.

In New Brunswick we’ve visited Hartland’s covered bridge; world’s largest covered bridge, Fundy National Park and the Hopewell Rocks. At the Hopewell Rocks we were lucky to be there with low tide, so we could wander along the rocks.

Nova Scotia was, for us, the most idyllic state. We drove all the way via the coast from Halifax to Peggy’s Cove to Lunenburg to Digby. That road is magnificent.

In Yarmouth we took “the cat” to Bar Harbor.

Back in US we’ve visited Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. And of course we’ve been to the Jordan Pond House for the famous “popovers”. Mmmmmm, delicious.

We did some shopping in Kittery and Freeport and got some witch history in Salem. In Gloucester we made our third and most exciting whale watch excursion.

Boston is a great city and has also a rich historical background. Of course we walked the “Freedom Trail” and visited Harvard. Here we did our last whale watch excursion, which was also a fantastic experience. But Gloucester was the max.

Because of the Microsoft Partner Conference we’ve stayed an extra week in Boston, so we had some extra time and decided to take a day trip to New York.
