Vacation by the Numbers

3301 miles

16 days on the road

15 nights away from home

11 different beds

  • Boston, MA
  • West Tremont, ME
  • St. John, NB
  • Mavilette, NS
  • Halifax, NS
  • Ingonish, NS
  • Panmure Island, PE
  • Alma, NB
  • St. Andrews, NB
  • Orr’s Island, ME

7 ferries (from big ones with tractor-trailers and free wifi, to tiny ones where we drove off onto the sand)

7 museums/historical sites

5 states (NY-CT-MA-NH-ME)

4 audiobooks in the car

3 provinces (NB-NS-PE)

2 lunches with bloggers (Bon and Sue), which also means two more bloggers met in person!

1 first oyster eaten by the six and ¾ year old


The only time we stopped for fast food in sixteen days on the road was for donuts and coffee at a Tim Horton’s one morning, just because we were in Canada and all.

Sounds like a great trip. When I was a kid we had a vacation on which we had a parents/kids agreement that every Native American museum/site would be matched with a ferry ride. So fun.

So, next time you are going to fly out west and do a Cascadia (OR, WA, BC) driving tour, right? I can promise bloggers and good food.

RuthWells said...

Wow -- I'm impressed! I would need some serious spa time to recover from all that vacation. ; )

Sounds like a great trip! I'm so glad (also more than a little jealous) that you got to meet Sue and Bon.

Lovely. I would like to copy it minute by minute.

That's a lot of mileage. I'd definitely love the trip, but at a much slower pace and with a lot more oysters.

Fantastic idea of management of celebrating holiday and vacation to some desired place and destinations which is just like rocket schedule to be carried out.
thanks for it is really very cool!

Lucky on all counts--especially going to Green Gables. One of these years....

Oh, it's all too much. I travel much, much more slowly these days. That is, not at all.
