Bertrand in Nova Scotia
Even though I travelled 1400 km on my journey in Nova Scotia, I am under the impression that this is just the beginning. I am sure that I will return one day and continue to discover the beauty of this province.

1400 km
Bertrand Lemeunier across Canada | After a 2500-kilometre warm-up on the Island of Newfoundland, I sailed to Nova Scotia. Early in the morning, the ferry docked at North Sydney, met by a thick fog that created an aura of mystery to my arrival in the second province on my journey across Canada.

After a short detour to Louisbourg, I headed toward the famous Cabot Trail, a well-loved route for bicycle tourists. The 300-kilometre trail is adorned with beautiful landscapes although it is quite challenging. The Cape Breton Highlands are blessed with spectacular scenery with incredible views of the mountains and the sea. I remember once riding into a bay where a bald eagle flew alongside me just above the water. These kinds of magical moments are where time is suspended and you become enchanted by the beauty of nature. In the seventeen days I spent in Acadia, I met many fascinating and hospitable people. Whether in Grand-Pré, Kejimkujik National Park, Halifax or Betty’s Cove, I was treated with generosity and was able to raise funds for the Make-A-Wish foundation.

Even though I travelled 1400 km on my journey in Nova Scotia, I am under the impression that this is just the beginning. I am sure that I will return one day and continue to discover the beauty of this province.

As for now, I have to keep on pedalling. Tomorrow, I am off to Prince Edward Island, Canada’s smallest province.

In Baddeck, you can visit the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site of Canada, dedicated to the man best known as the inventor of the telephone. “ Mr. Watson – Come Here – I want to see you” is considered the first telephone conversation (March 10, 1876, Boston) he had with his assistant listening at the receiving end in an adjoining room (Source: Wikipedia).

Alexander Graham Bell once said: “What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it."
