Well, it's that time again! On December 9th I will be embarking on a trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia to pick-up my friend Sam from school. She's moving back home for a wee bit-o-time before jetting off for Liverpool in January to do her PHD.
I'll be accompanied by my friend Tasha for the journey, as it's never good, nor fun, to do road trips alone unless you have unlimited iPod battery life and a playlist of enganging songs. lol
I've made the trip to Halifax, by car, two times, so the drive is nothing new to me.
1) In April 2005, to pick Sam up from school after 1st year. I drove along with my friend Kyle, and I think we made it in 19hours. Never will I do the drive again straight. Maybe a good night's sleep before would make a difference....hm. On the way back we saw a billboard for PEI..."45 minutes to fun!"......of course we wanted to test this time test, and sure enough! PEI was great but it was the off season so not much going on. But I got my precious Anne Shirley's Raspberry Cordial 2) October 2006, for a doc shoot. I was accompanied by Alex, Brad, Ashleigh, and Nikolai from Film Studies (Ryerson). The road trip was long but fun! Hilariousness ensued when I went to have a nap, and must not have given the map I had to the new driver (YAY TWO DRIVERS!) going the wrong way and almost ending up in Northern Quebec instead of the east coast. Oops! But we made it to Halifax and back in one piece, and I had a great time!
So what hijinks will occur on this trip? I hope it's okay driving though...sheesh this would be the one December in a long while with actual snow. With my luck, a blizzard. But I'm not complaining...I'm hoping for a white Christmas!
