2019 summer vacation: Day six - From Thompson to Flin Flon
Dear readers of my blog!
On the sixth day of my epic summer vacation in June and July 2019, I drove from Thompson in Northern Manitoba to the city of Flin Flon in Western Manitoba which is situated right on the border with Saskatchewan. The northern landscapes were truly stunning to watch. I also have an amusing anecdote to share. When I left Thompson, I thought that I had enough gas to reach the next gas station I had seen the day before without any problems. When I passed by a very small town, I decided to look for a nearby gas station nevertheless. There was no attendant and the actual gas station was actually closed. It was possible to buy gas at a machine with a debit card but the machine didn't accept credit cards which frustrated an elderly couple that had arrived before I came to this place. They also informed me that the gas station which I thought was on my way had actually burned down. If I hadn't stopped at this particular place with the unusual pump, I would have run out of gas for sure. The lesson I have learned from this is to go to the gas station early in the morning right after checking out of the hotel.
