Insights into Atlantic Canada August 2018

Highlights of travel for most, are the times we connect with ‘locals’ and gain a meaningful understanding of the place, its people and way of life. Discover a vibrant literary and cultural community when you meet the ‘locals’ at two literary festivals and various musical and theatre events. A literary focus also underpins some of the charming places you visit and gives insight into the cultural heritage of these four provinces. Some of the most well-known: Prince Edward Island, the setting for ‘Anne of Green Gables’; Newfoundland  in Annie Proulx’s ‘The Shipping News’; New Brunswick, portrayed through theatre and dance, based on the writings of Acadian author, Antonine Maillet; and Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, the land of Longfellow’s Evangeline.  Also featured are places of historical interest, national parks, walks, boat tours, and time to savour the succulent seafood and locally inspired cuisine.
