    Nice little chats with 2 border controls

    May 30, 2018 in Canada ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    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, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    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 ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    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
