Our traveler reaches the end of her amazing, quirky journey across the huge country that is Canada and looks back on what she has and hasn’t learned over the past four months. The truth is, she’s gone from West Coast to East Coast and she’s just plain run out of road. We will miss Sarah’s posts from towns we never knew the names of before, but hopefully she’ll be back with many more Sarahisms. Here’s her last post from the road.
Why, dear god, WHY did I think that booking myself on to the 5:45am ferry from North Sydney to Port Aux Basques, Newfoundland was a good idea?
