From A Distance
From a distance you will learn again how precious the things are and what you have. This is something that the people in Nova Scotia share with their visitors and make the strangers feel being at home and let them go as friends.
The people living in Nova Scotia have deep roots and show and share their cultures and by now we did not found any other place in the world where local and foreign cultures can exist side by side. If it is a PowWow, an “Oktoberfest”, the Highland Games, the Celtic-Colours International Festival or any other tradition or festival that can be celebrated, you will find all these in Nova Scotia.But the people only – won’t make a country – the country itself give its distinction to the people. Nova Scotia is a treasure, with all the different landscapes, unique scenic drives, lakes, rivers and of course the ocean. The various forests from pine, hardwood to boreal woods. From the plateaus of the Cape Breton Highlands to the shores of Cape Sable Island, from the east cost to the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia is a place where you will find nature just around any corner. You just need a few minutes to be at the water, regardless where you are in Nova Scotia, whether it is a lake, a river or the sea. Rough cliffs or smooth hills, beaches or mountains you will always find hikes, trails or tracks to walk. From a distance – in time and space – we start to imagine why the people in Nova Scotia are so proud of their province, it is so simple, it is the same we have experienced and it is the same we are missing now while being away from Nova Scotia – it is the land, the nature and the culture. It is Nova Scotia itself!
There is a website that helps us to survive the time until our next vacation. It is like a window that we can open on our computer and have a look how it looks in Nova Scotia, and here is the link we would like to share: novascotiawebcams.com.
