    Woops, wrong turn. What a rigmarole just to turn a corner! Over the US border by mistake but not allowed back until gone through border control, then up the road to Canadian border control to get back in!! In the US all of 10 minutes today 🇱🇷 🇨🇦

    Fredericton

    May 4 in Canada

    Nachdem ich gestern noch ein wenig den Highway 17 Richtung Süden gefahren bin und dann noch einen Schlafplatz gefunden habe, führte mich mein Weg wieder auf den Transcanada bei Grand Falls.
    Diese Wasserfälle sind zu dieser Jahreszeit besonders wild, da in dem Saint John River das ganze Schmelzwasser von den Bergen und den Nebenflüssen zusammenläuft.
    Es gab sogar die Möglichkeit sich über den Fluß zu seilen, aber das war, wie sollte es anders sein geschlossen.
    Ich fuhr den Transcanada und teilweise den Highway 105 weiter in die Provinzhauptstadt Fredericton.
    Fredericton ist auch sehr europäisch geprägt.
    Nur leider konnte ich nicht soviel sehen, da ein Großteil der Stadt gesperrt war. Der mächtige Saint John River ist wegen des vielen Schmelzwassers vom Norden, über die Ufer getreten und hat für eine flächendeckende Überschwemmung gesorgt.
    So entschied ich mich am frühen Morgen weiter nach Süden zu fahren und diese Geisterstadt zu verlassen.

    Fredericton and the Third Province

    August 3, 2016 in Canada

    After 6 hours of driving, we arrived at the Holiday Inn Fredericton, NB. En route we sadly did not see a single moose, despite all of the signs and the 300 moose-related road accidents annually. We did however see and drive through the world's longest covered bridge...which looked like an old train shed over a river. We also took in Potato World in Florenceville, whose town slogan is "the french fry capital of the world", being the home of McCain and growing one third of all the potatoes they use here. We took a scenic route down 105 through the St John river valley which was astoundingly beautiful, and was a welcome break from the Trans-Canadian Highway. It is so strange driving an automatic with cruise control and to constantly searching for a non-existant clutch and gears. Arrival into Fredericton was marked by a brilliant hotel; greeted with complimentary beer, plus more free beer and nibbles ("Why?" "Because it's Wednesday...") and being given a suite with a huge lounge and the biggest bed I've ever seen! We walked the hour into Fredericton which, despite being the capital of the province, is essentially contained in two streets (the population is only around 50,000; New Brunwick only has about 750,000). We'll maybe see it a little more tomorrow before heading on again; it seems likely a lovely place, just rather sleepy and quaint.Read more

    Fredericton, NB

    September 15, 2015 in Canada

    Since we only had 600 km to drive today, we took our time and visited two touristy spots that the Visitor Centre recommended. The first was Grand Falls Gorge which took us too long to find and was disappointing in that it wasn't so grand. We enjoyed the next attraction located in Hartland....the longest covered bridge in North America. Although we left Quebec at 10 a.m., we didn't arrive in Fredericton until 7 p.m. There were many moose warning signs so I was happy to arrive before sunset.

    Our first impression of Nouveau-Brunswick.....trees and more trees! There is very little development in this area of the province so we drove through miles and miles of thick forest. The forest continued right to the outskirts of the city.

    Fredericton, NB

    September 16, 2015 in Canada

    Before leaving Fredericton we walked along the waterfront and historic downtown area....a nice city with a population of 85,000. There was a jazz and blues festival happening in the city so this explains why I had so much difficulty booking accommodation.
