PLACE #35 – Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada

Charlottetown is one of many destinations I visited on my summer trip to Maritimes. 

To get to Charlottetown, PEI,  I had had to cross confederation bridge from New Brunswick. The view was spectacular and the drive took me only 10 minutes. It was the longest bridge I ever crossed. Charlotte town was also a place where I had my first lobster. It was the most delicious thing I had. 
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best during my visit – it was raining, so I wasn’t able to walk down the charming streets of Charlottetown. However, I was able to pay a visit to the famous Province House.
After our quick stroll through the rainy town of Charlottetown, I drove to the beach… It was in my original plans to go to a beach in PEI, so a little drizzle was not about to stop me from swimming in the ocean!

The beach was spectacular. There were no people at the beach except for myself (my fellow travelers) and the lifeguards. PEI is famous for its red sand beaches and this beach was no different.


In the summer of 2012 I travelled through the Maritimes with a few of my friends. We drove quite a bit on our trip through the East Coast of Canada – in total we drove more than 1800 kilometers. Here is a list of all places we visited on our trip:
1. Halifax, Nova Scotia
2. Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia
