Alternatives

I am a creature of habit. Travel from PEI to Montreal and back entails many turns of my tires, fortunately with no blow-outs. Accompanied by my uncritical companion, FÉLIX, we cover 1300km in about 12 ½ hours, including several gas stops and short naps as required.

Mais, on peut s’y rendre sans le train-train des autoroutes, le splish splash des essuie-glaces et l’inconfort de pression sur les mêmes points d’appui sur le siège. Imaginez que mes très bons amis m’ont fait découvrir une autre façon de parcourir le chemin, et cela sans toucher la route. Une autre avantage de la retraite est d’avoir le temps de découvrir les nouveautés!

Alternative by-ways in Canada have always featured waterways. And what a treat was in store for my good friends. As I plied the highways with my soon to be worn-out tires, they feasted and exercised and danced away the hours in the luxury of a cruise ship. When you see their faces as they emerge from the gangplank… well, let’s just say I won’t include one of me as I poured myself out of my car after my recent return to Charlottetown.

Possiblement on peut gagner à essayer différentes formes de transport pour vivre les alternatives. Mais qu’on vienne à pied, en auto, en bateau ou en avion, l’arrivée est toujours magique au pays de terre rouge, la mer et les champs qui murissent.
