Atlantic Canada

All of these items are taken from this book: The Great Atlantic Canada Bucket List by Robin Esrock. I love this book and the series covers so many things about Canada. Now this will be both a review of the book as well as making a list of the things that you should see in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador. If you click on the photo you will be take to the Amazon page for this book.


Now before I begin I purchased this book on my own and chose to review it myself.
