We spent about six days in Dawson City and met some of the most colourful characters. People tend to move to Dawson City either to get away from something, or to find something, and that makes the city a really amazing place filled with creative people. Driving into Dawson City is like driving into a past era.
Whitehorse is probably the most livable city in the world: not only can you live in a city and do city things, but you can drive five minutes and be at a lake with no one around, or drive 10 minutes and be in the middle of a mountain range. The amazing architects that we met here included Tim Turner-Davis, Mary Ellen Read, John Berg, Charlie McLaren and Doug Mayr.
We took the 13 km Confederation bridge connection New Brunswick to PEI, and entered the land of sandy, red soil and very nice people. While we did spend our evenings in the capital city, we focused most of our time in a quaint little village called Victoria-by-the-Sea. Bustling in the summer, this village was, what one may call, a 'ghost town' in November, but we did meet many of the ~50 year round residents.
After two ferries from Nova Scotia, we entered into a small Quebec town called Blanc-Sablon, and within minutes we were entering Labrador and driving down an unpaved highway to Mary's Harbour. When we headed back to Newfoundland, we spent a few days in Twillingate, a small fishing town on the East coast of the island. Our trip ended in St. John's, the small capital city of the province!
