I arrived in Florenceville, New Brunswick shortly after 4pm today. It was a dreary, dark, and rainy 9 hour bus ride from Halifax. Surprisingly I slept most of the way, contorting my near 6-foot body into all sorts of fun shapes. Slight loneliness in my heart, for I have been visiting with my loved ones (friends & family) since the first of July. I left Mexico July 1st – and since then I have passed through 2 states (1 US, 1 Canadian) and 5 provinces. Falls Brook…Continue

It is a fortunate situation, I think, to live in a country where railroad culture is still alive. Although passenger trains in Canada have had their trials, with certain routes being discontinued over the years, it cannot be denied that a presence is still held. The VIA # 1 line, The Canadian, from Toronto - Vancouver, with stops in between, is basically a moving museum.

"Amazing Grace. How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,

The train helped deliver me to this hymn.
I found myself singing as I stood in line for the last supper of the 2011 Winnipeg Folk Festival, in Birds Hill Park, Manitoba. Just days earlier, for a friends wedding, I’d played my guitar on the porch of a large mansion called ‘Covenhoven’. Covenhoven is…

Happy Independence Day. I was sure to get out of America at the crack of dawn this morning, there was no way I was going to celebrate with them having not celebrating my own country’s holiday. I got into BC this morning, Vancouver to be exact, at around 1030 and pops and I hit up a delicious dim sum spot. I plan to get my fix of cuisine from most of the Asian countries whilst I am here…soo yummy…especially after weeks and weeks of straight Mexican. I currently sit at uncle David’s, old roots…Continue
