Lots of free time

Sorry for the long time without a post. Although we have free all day and could write posts every day you haven’t heard from us for a week. That’s because nearly every day looks the same here. And today I will tell you what we do all day. Normally between 9 and 10 we start …

Back to Halifax

You haven’t read news from us the last days because we are back in Halifax and compared to the last two week things are getting more boring. We had to return our car and use our free time to relax. But before we returned the car on Wednesday we used it on Tuesday and Wednesday to …

The part of highway 401, we took today, is known as the busiest and widest highway in the world.  Here is a small impression. The new home in Toronto …
