    On the tenth day of my trip across Eastern Canada, I drove all the way from Alma, New Brunswick to Cornwall, Prince Edward Island.

    Highlights: I got up early in the morning and continued visiting Fundy National Park which I had only partially explored the night before. It's a wonderful place with boardwalks, camping grounds, bridges, lakes, meadows, ponds, rivers, swimming pools, trails, waterfalls and more. Then I visited what might be the single most beautiful place I visited on my trip: Cape Enrage, a wonderful spot with a lighthouse, numerous trails and a stunning view of Fundy Bay.

    Curiosities: Along with Peggys Cove, Hopewell Rocks was the only place that was crowded with tourists who were busy taking selfies and disrespecting the rules of the park rangers. Initially, I wanted to stay and sleep in Moncton but I didn't like the city very much and decided to drive all the way to Prince Edward Island instead. Moncton was the only city that didn't look beautiful to me on the entire trip.

    On my ninth day, I drove from Saint John to Fredericton, then visited Fundy National Park and ended up sleeping in a beautiful village called Alma.

    Highlights: Fundy National Park was beautiful and diversified. One could easily stay there and visit for a whole week. In Alma, I had the best dinner of my entire trip through Eastern Canada in a restaurant called An Octopus' Garden Cafe.

    Curiosities: If compared to all other Canadian provinces I have been to, the roads in New Brunswick are clearly the worst. At times, I was scared to damage my car. I'm talking about long highways and not some unpaved park roads here. New Brunswick should invest more funds into road infrastructures.

    On the eighth day of my voyage, I took the first of many ferries. This one took me from Digby in Nova Scotia to Saint John in New Brunswick.

    Highlights: Digby is a stunningly beautiful little town with many creative monuments and numerous interesting restaurants.

    Curiosities: New Brunswick welcomed me with thick layers of fog in Saint John which gave the city a slightly chilling atmosphere.

    On the seventh day, I continued visiting the southern east coast of Nova Scotia, driving from Lunenburg to Yarmouth.

    Highlights: Kejimkujik National Park Seaside was one of the most beautiful spots on my entire trip. One could observe beaches, fields, forests, ponds and the sea for hours.

    Curiosities: However, the parking lot of Kejimkujik National Park Seaside was covered in large rocks. The front of my car collided with one of them, slightly damaging it which worried me for a while. However, that was the only incident of that kind during my trip. When I arrived in Yarmouth in the evening, fog suddenly appeared and reduced visibility significantly. My hotel room didn't have air conditioning which got me a reduced fee. I went to the cinema to watch ''Mission Impossible - Fallout'' which I liked quite a lot.

    On the sixth day of my trip to Eastern Canada, I finally rented a car and left Halifax. I visited the southern east coast of Nova Scotia as I drove from Halifax to Lunenburg. The weather was great and my Mitsubishi Lancer was very comfortable to drive. Among all the cars I have driven so far, this is certainly my favourite brand and type.

    Highlights: I liked everything I saw that day but the wonderful town of Mahone Bay stood out with its beautiful bay, colourful buildings and clean parks.

    Curiosities: ''Bao bao!'' ''Was ist hier los?'' ''J'aime cet endroit!'' The number of tourists from foreign countries, China and Germany in particular, easilly outnumbered the local residents in Peggys Cove. While I liked the colourful village, it was an unusually busy place and I preferred to move on rather quickly.
