Throwback to our Canadian Honeymoon: Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton

Continuing with the parks theme this month, I couldn’t resist a throwback to my honeymoon in Nova Scotia, Canada.

A few shots of Cape Breton was all it took for my then-fiance to convince me that we should abandon the sunny beaches of traditional honeymoons for the cooler, craggier coast of Nova Scotia. Our week and a half there was remote, romantic, adventurous — and we couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful introduction to married life.

Nova Scotia is composed of two regions: the southern mainland and the northern cape, which is almost exclusively a national park and wildlife reserve. Cape Breton Highlands National Park is a solitary place full of dramatic landscapes, and we loved exploring it. I could write many posts on all the things I loved about Nova Scotia, but today I only have time to leave you with this stunning photo I call: “where the mountains meet the sea.”


Which do you prefer: the mountains or the coast? Have you been to Nova Scotia? Tell me all about it in the comments!

Wanderlust Wednesday is a weekly travel post originally started on the Wanderlusty Writer. It features places I’ve been and places I want to go that fuel my wanderlust.

    1. Yes! Nova Scotia is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. I loooooove that place. So much natural beauty and incredible coastline. Plus there’s the capital, Halifax, which has a lot of character and great restaurants and history.
