Interesting, 'allumez vos phares'. In France it would say 'allumez vos feux'.

There are many small differences in Quebec french, much like the differences between American and British English.

But in New Brunswick they speak Acadian French, which is a bit different from Quebec French

Photos of median barrier construction on Autoroute 50 west of Mirabel. The MTQ is constructing a concrete central divider for several kilometes of the Autoroute just west of the airport. Despite the median barrier construction, the highway will remain a single lane in each direction:

Finally! That strech of highway 50 was really dangerous.

A current photo of the Coquihalla Highway. Semis spun out all over the highway. This seems to be the first round of significant traffic impact on the Coquihalla this season. It is closed southbound.

Canada's first all-season highway to the Arctic Ocean opens next month



Some people do a longitudinal trip across Canada. Atlantic to Pacific or Pacific to Atlantic.

Perhaps the latitudinal trip might start up? Lake Erie to Arctic Ocean or Arctic to Erie. It's a 82 hour drive from Point Pelee to Inuvik. Add a few more to make it all the way to Tuktoyaktuk
-Trip is shorter if you cut through the USA.

Drove through a storm like that in a dinky little rental car on the Crowsnest in May. Went from rain to blizzard in about 5 minutes, and the highway was closed behind me. Crazy stuff, had to drive around a jackknifed tractor trailer at one point that was sitting in the middle of the road.

Great shots, I love rural roads in North America.

Some of my road photos from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Much worse quality though...

I guess it's fairly rare for European travelers to go to the Maritimes.

in the area around Lunenberg, NS there were some German couples who had actually bought homes on the water and would summer there :o
but considering cost of waterfront property there vs. in the BRD probably the plane tickets are less expensive than the difference in mortgage interest :o

and me I think the 4-5 hours north is too far
