Travel News: Heading towards Prince Edward Island (PEI)

As we come towards the end of the Gaspé Region in full glare of the brilliant sunshine, we drive past small towns; New Carlisle, Bonaventure, New Richmond, Carleton-St-Omer making a stop at the town of Maria for lunch at a roadside diner.

Entering Bathurst, New Brunswick

The landscape flattens as we drive into New Brunswick; we spend the night in Bathurst. The highway drive from Bathurst to the Confederation Bridge, the gateway to PEI is long, dull and slow as we are stuck on a two lane highway with no passing lanes and no service centres.

At last Confederation Bridge is in front of us. It feels strange to be on this Bridge, an excellent feat in engineering. There are no regular bridge suspension trappings. It is like driving on any other highway but high above the waters below us, the Northumberland Strait.
