This was a request way back when I first talked about doing a Anne of Green Gables readalong, that I give updates once we get close to the actual trip. So now you all get to join in on this fun planning period!
The general plan is that we fly from Chicago to Halifax on Wednesday, spend the night there, then take a ferry to PEI the next day. And then on Sunday we do the opposite, from PEI to Halifax, an we fly out on Monday.
That is, if nothing goes wrong. Turns out, my Mom’s birthday is coincidentally the same time as the Biggest Music Festival of the Year. Every hotel is sold out, every rental car is booked, even trains and busses are full. In theory, we have hotels booked, and a rental car waiting on PEI, although we had to reserve a car with a driver to get from Halifax to the ferry. I am very dubious of this all working!!! But it will be fun if it doesn’t work, right? We can just figure things out.
So, what do you think we should do? What are fun mother-daughter activities? What locations should we definitely visit? What podcasts should we listen to while driving? What books on the plane? What snacks for the car?
