We returned safe and sound from our annual epic road trip on Monday. Here is how the trip unfolded, by the numbers….
Miles driven: 5390.7. We thought about driving around for 10 more miles, but that would have been cheating.
States/provinces traversed: 8. In case you’re wondering which ones: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland.
Beds slept in: 13. Hotel beds, blow-up mattresses, sofa beds, and ferry bunk beds. You name it, I slept on it!
Ferry crossings: 4. We were on a huge ferry between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland (16 hours), and a smaller one between Newfoundland mainland and Fogo Island (45 minutes).
Hikes on Fogo Island: 5
Stuffed animal trip mascots that my mom bought: 3. 2 puffins she named “Chip” and “Dip,” and Sable, a Newfoundland dog.
Books read (by all of us): 11.
Stops at Tim Hortons for coffee and donuts: no comment.
Fish and chips meals consumed: no comment.
Fleece jackets purchased: no comment.
Photos taken: thousands.
Fun memories: countless! (I broke my selfie ban to take this one.)
