    Saint John

    May 5 in Canada

    Saint John ist die Hafenmetropole der Provinz und hat mit rund 70000 Einwohnern, noch mehr als die Hauptstadt Fredericton.
    Eine der bekanntesten Institutionen ist der Old Farmers Market den es bereits seit 1874 gibt.
    In einer großen Halle mitten in der Innenstadt werden frische Waren von Händlern aus der Umgebung und der ganzen Provinz verkauft. Ich muss sagen in Kanada gibt es in fast allen größeren Städten solche Märkte. Das ist etwas was in Zeiten von Supermärkten, McDonald's und Co. sehr positiv hervorzuheben ist.
    Am Nachmittag habe ich mir dann noch eine Portion frischen Lobster gegönnt und Abends bin ich mal wieder in's Kino gegangen.

    Saint John, NB

    September 26, 2015 in Canada

    Our route took us through the Fundy National Park, which would be a great spot for a camping trip. We made time for a short coastal hike, then tried out the Park's red chairs with a view of the Bay of Fundy at low tide. Then it was onward to Saint John, watching out for moose on the road as by now it was dusk. Saint John is another unimpressive city. It took us 11 hours plus 15,710 steps logged on my Fitbit but we sure crammed in a lot of great sights.Read more

    A scenic 7hr drive!

    August 10, 2016 in Canada

    So our route to Saint John had to be rejigged due to road closures from the wild fires...We ended up driving almost back to Halifax before heading out of Nova Scotia and back into New Brunswick, taking a total of 7hrs, driving an hour each on the Trans-Canada highway...rather dull after hundreds of kilometres. Saint John however has rather more going for it than Fredericton did, and was Canada's first legal city in 1785. Our hotel is actually one of a number of buildings bought to save them and keep their heritage - ours is a lovely red brick building with fab suite in the centre of town....and free laundry, yay! We had a wander through the town and the harbour before returning to the room with a bottle of wine and Dominos ☺ We plan on visiting the New Brunswick Museum tomorrow before heading into Portland for a night.Read more
