This May I had a wonderful opportunity to help my friend Sarah drive across Canada with her 2 daughters (both under 4). Sarah needed a hand moving from PEI to Red Deer Alberta and offered to pick me up on her way through New Brunswick. How could I pass up the special opportunity to help a friend and see our big and beautiful Canadian provinces. So since this was my first time seeing west of Ontario, I thought why not continue the journey past Alberta and make plans to travel solo to Vancouver.
We left the Maritimes at the end of April, during a very unseasonably chilly spring. We will soon find out that Canada in general had an unusually late start to spring, even Alberta still had hints of snow! This is my epic 20 day roadtrip across Canada, from east coast to west!
New Brunswick & Quebec, April 29-30
Sarah and her girls stopped by from PEI to pick me up. After a short lunch break were are off! We stopped at a hotel in Edmundston for the night and enjoyed a quick swim in the hotel’s indoor pool before a good nights rest. We woke up before sunrise and started our long day of driving. We drove through Quebec and stopped in Ottawa for the night.
