Visit to New Brunswick / Nova Scotia 4

I landed in Moncton, New Brunswick yesterday around dinner time for a brief 1 night business trip.

Some things I noticed in my short time here: people drive really slow, it’s a lot more quiet, there are many hitchhikers on the highway, and I even saw a business man walking casually along the Trans Canada highway with a briefcase. The speed limit is 110KPH, is this guy crazy? You’d never see someone walk along the 401 in Toronto, that’s for sure. I also noticed there are a lot of French speaking people in Moncton; I think it’s predominantly French.

I managed to find some time today to drive around the coast and see the ocean. It’s been a while since I had seen the ocean, so I took some beautiful pictures of the coast (Most pictures were taken in Nova Scotia). I’m off to catch my flight home now.

    Nice pictures of, what I think is, the Confederation Bridge. Did you get a chance to drive to PEI?

    Yeah, it’s the confederation bridge. I didn’t actually get to go to PEI. I only had 3 hours or so to drive around. But I toured PEI on my motorcycle last September, very beautiful.

    35% of Moncton’s population is French speaking, just thought you should know that. Below are some other interesting Moncton factoids. Bon courage!
