One of the most memorable trips I have ever made was a drive along the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. This 300km stretch of winding coastal highway offers one of the most scenic drives in the world with stunning ocean views and highland scenery.
It was part of my quick tour of two Canadian Maritime provinces (New Brunswick and Nova Scotia), and I had only budgeted one day for this segment of my tour. Initially, I wasn't sure I had enough time to complete a full loop of this trail in one day (it's not just the driving time as I had to include time for all the scenic stops and photo shoots). However, after consulting with the staff at a tourist information centre, I decided that if I didn't try, I might not get another chance, so I went for it.
I'm so glad I did. The experience far exceeded my expectations. It was a bright and sunny day, and all along the trail, the scenery was just breathtaking. Let me share with you a few photos to give you a glimpse of what my eyes were blessed with on that day. I was tight on time, so I had to limit the number of stops and the time I took for photos.
