• Dog on the Rocks • [TstPics ] Is it just me or do you also see the shape of a huge resting dog in the rocks? This view struck me just outside the harbor of Twillingate on my way to the lighthouse. • Tstcanada with @explorecanada & @nfldandlabrador • Explorecanada TravelNL • Travel Canada Newfoundland Photography •

Whitehorse bound! • TstNow Good morning from Watson Lake the gateway to the Yukon! Yesterday was definitely one of the most challenging drives I ever did. Had to dodge caribous and even a bison in the middle of the road. Also the temperature kept dropping all the way to -32°C. Never been in temperatures so cold. The heating barely kept the windscreen clear so I had to help with scraping it from the inside. The fact that one of my headlights died on me wasn't helping either... But I stayed positive & focused and kept a speed between 60 and 80 km/hour. Steady does it! The adventure, joy of arriving at my destination and the views as you see in the picture are totally worth it though. Today I'm off to Whitehorse! I'll be there for a few days so your tips on where to go & stay, what to do and who to meet there are very welcome!

A stroll through time • TstMoments That's how it feels to walk around the old town of Québec city. The old continent is still very present and visual there.

La vie en rose • TstNow The road to Dawson today followed the Yukon River and was so sooo beautiful. The sky had different shades of pink all the way. Never seen anything like it. It felt almost like being on a different planet. Pure beauty! • Tstcanada with @TravelYukon & @explorecanada • Explorecanada Exploreyukon • Travel Canada Yukon LandscapePhotography Roadtrip •

Bye Bye Canada! It's been one big unforgettable adventure. Currently boarding my flight home to catch up with family and friends and to write down my experiences from the past months in an eBook. I'll be back soon enough to pick up Rose and we'll continue our journey South all the way to Panama. This time playing the guitar to earn my gas money. Stay tuned for more Canada pictures and stories the coming weeks ;-) Have a beautiful end of the year. • Tstcanada with @explorecanada • TstGuitar with @gibsonguitar • Socialtravel Travel Canada Vancouver •

Far Frozen West • TstNow Here I am ON the frozen Yukon River in Dawson City and that's the furthest North West I could drive in Canada. The contrast, Winter/Summer couldn't be bigger with the similar picture I took in Cape Spear, Newfoundland at the start of this big cross country adventure! So far I drove 18.000 km with Rose across Canada and decided to use this natural frozen border as the point from where I'll start heading south as part of my guitar challenge. From here it goes all the way to Panama and my first next stops are Edmonton and The Rockies in Alberta. I hear they are truly majestic! After that I'll take a little winter break to recharge batteries and write more stories about this 6 month musical roadtrip adventure. Soooo many stories to tell... Stay tuned and thank you ALL for following along & being part of this adventure! Without you none of this would be possible. • Tstcanada with @TravelYukon & @explorecanada • Exploreyukon Explorecanada • SocialTravel Travel Canada Yukon Roadtrip Westfalia T2 •
In touch with Nature • TstStories In Ottawa I paid a visit to the Canadian Museum of Nature. What a cool place. You discover all the animals, insects that inhabit(ed) Canada and learn about them in a very interactive way. From dinosaurs over whales, to bears, Moose, wolves and all kinds of birds. Spent a great afternoon there! Worth a visit. • Tstcanada with Ontario Travel & Canada Keep Exploring • Myottawa Explorecanada DiscoverON • travel Canada Ontario Ottawa museum • ••• Currently updating from Saskatoon in Saskatchewan.

• An afternoon Sailing • TstStories Earlier this week my host in St. Peter's, Greg, from Cape Breton Sailing invited me to join him for some fun on Bras d'Or lake. Together with Ida and Linda who booked a tour we sailed out on a bright and sunny day. Perfect. We had lots of laughs and fun and even got to stear the boat. Greg always stayed very relaxed, going for a stroll to the front of the boat with us still on the wheel. Oh the trust :-) Really an exhilarating feeling trying to control the boat and get it to go where you want. A very beautiful day with great people. Thanks Greg! • Tstcanada with @explorecanada & @visitnovascotia • Explorecanada VisitNovaScotia • SocialTravel Travel Canada NovaScotia CapeBreton Sailing •

Thank You Calgary ! • TstNow My second visit here was all about recharging batteries and getting winterized for my journey North to the Yukon all the way to the border with Alaska, the most westly point of Canada. Rose got new heating, brakes, winter tires and a tune up of the engine. She runs super smooth. In the meantime I was hosted by Tatiana and later by Monique, found time to rest, for writing, paperwork, to practice more guitar, to get a super winter outfit with help of Myla and explore Calgary a bit more with new found friends. I feel recharged and ready for the big drive North! 3000 km of winter adventure lay ahead of me. After that I come back down to Alberta for my final weeks in Canada. Wish me luck ;-) • Tstcanada with @travelalberta & @travelyukon & @explorecanada • ExploreAlberta ExploreCanada • SocialTravel Travel Canada Alberta

Highway up • TstNow We went for a little road trip on the Dempster Highway today. It's the most Northern Highway in the world and heads all the way to the Arctic Ocean and passes the Arctic circle. There's barely traffic, it's very bumpy and there's no service for over 350 km but the views are amazing. Unfortunately it was a cloudy day so couldn't capture much of that. After 50 km we turned back to Dawson City where we'll spend our last night. Such a special place. • Tstcanada with @TravelYukon & @explorecanada • Explorecanada Exploreyukon • Travel Canada Yukon Westfalia T2 •

Hello Nova Scotia! • TstMoments Arrived early this morning and excited to explore this part of the Atlantic Coast of Canada. All tips on what to do and where to go are welcome and don't hesitate to put me in touch with your local friends and/or guitar teachers :-) Would love to catch up. I already got my first lesson from Angelo from North River Kayak tours after an early morning peddle. A great way to start the day. • Tstcanada with @explorecanada & @visitnovascotia • Explorecanada VisitNovaScotia • SocialTravel Travel Canada NovaScotia • Westfalia T2 •

Murphy's law • TstNow 'What can go wrong, will go wrong' and so it did. 130 km from Whitehorse the engine stopped. Right in the middle of nowhere. Not something I could fix next to the road at -27C so I turned on my emergency gas heater (thank you Margaret!) and waited. I managed to stop Bill the trucker after 15 min of waiting. Explained the situation, took my stuff ol from the van and he drove me to Whitehorse. A lovely and friendly man. Rose will be towed in tomorrow morning. I hope some caribou will keep her some company during the night. Another day. Another adventure. :-) • Tstcanada with @TravelYukon & @explorecanada • Explorecanada ExploreYukon • SocialTravel Travel Canada Yukon Roadtrip Westfalia T2 •
