1. 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.

  2. Leaving a magical place • [#tstPics]

Exploring #Newfoundland was truly a moving experience. 

Breathtaking sights, beautiful traditions, up close and personal with wildlife and last but not least, the people. 

Newfies took me in, introduced me to their friends and culture and made me feel more than welcome. 
It’s been a true pleasure and delight. 

Now I’m boarding the ferry to #NovaScotia with I’m sure more beautiful sights, people and adventures ahead.

Do let me know if you have some great tips for places to see or people to meet ;-)

  4. • The Gathering: Chefs hike • [#tstStories]

    The second day at The Gathering was definitely my favorite.

    At breakfast I met a great bunch of friends and together we went on the ‘Chefs Hike’ which is part of the event.

    A shuttle bus took us to the start of a hiking trail that would lead us through the forest to a remote cove.

    On arrival we were welcomed with an intimate concert by Sam Roberts, a famous Canadian musician and by Canadian Star Chefs that prepared a delicious lunch for everybody.

    We spent a lovely afternoon relaxing in the sun, having a delicious meal while enjoying the music and the views at this unique location.

    Never experienced anything like it. The atmosphere was very friendly and intimate.

    Loved it!

    Kudos to Shaun Majumder and his team for putting all this together.

  5. • The Gathering • [#tstStories]

    Last weekend I received an invite for an event called The Gathering.

    Place to be: #Burlington.

    It’s a bit remote but the drive there is stunning. Just make sure you gas up before leaving the trans Canadian Highway direction North.

    Once there I went looking for Barbara, Ole, Adrian and Birgit. They actually invited me over.

    So happy they did. :-)
    It was truly a beautiful weekend.

    The first evening we spent on The Gathering grounds where people were lining up for an evening of delicious food and beautiful music.

    Top chefs from Canada got together and cooked up their best to serve all the people at the grounds.

    While people were lining up they were entertained by top performers in comedy and music.

    The backdrop was a stunning view over the Burlington Bay.

    It’s only the second edition of this event and this festival is going places for sure. People just rave about it.

    The main man behind it all is Shaun Majumder, a famous Canadian comedian.

    The festival is there to support the local community and to put Burlington, which is his lovely home town, on the tourist map.

    It’s very clear that he puts in his heart and soul and that shows by the loads of support he gets from friends and the local community.

    An inspiring guy.

    From The Gathering grounds we moved to the camping grounds where we spent the night around the campfire.

    I even got a guitar lesson from Adam Baxter, one of the artists at the event. (@adambaxtermusic)

    He guided me through the song ‘Country road’ while everybody around the campfire was watching.

    Can’t say I didn’t feel a bit of pressure there but everybody was very supportive :-)

    A big thx to Chris Tuck for introducing me to him.

    After that I ended up talking for hours with Tracy and her husband from ‘@Sealedwithakiss’. What a beautiful and creative couple. Together for 20 years already and still radiating as if they just met.

    Beautiful.

    They sent me off to my van with a delicious partridge berry pie.

    His favorite. :-)

Took this shot on my way there. A winding road surrounded by trees and moose. 

Keep an eye on your feed the coming hours for stories to come ;-)
