Driving To The Maritimes

Day One

Our first day travelling to our new home was uneventful. The roads were very empty. I saw a lot of transport trucks. There was a bit of road construction going on. It did not cause any delay. The sky was overcast, which made the colours of the green grasses on the roadside, contrasted with the leaves on the trees, in shades of red, orange and yellow, quite pretty. I listened to many podcasts as I drove. My husband and I are each driving our own vehicles and we met up every 2 hours or so to eat some prepared foods we brought with us. We have stopped midway to stay overnight in a hotel. Tomorrow morning, after some breakfast, we will be back on the road.

Day two

We drove in a lot of rain. I listened to a lot of music this day. We were stopped at a checkpoint where we had to show our papers to enter the province. We were permitted to enter. Then we continued to drive, and reached our destination. We set up our quarantine home. It is a Taylor Coach. A beautiful little trailer.


We have committed to a 14 day self isolation. We designed our own bucket compost toilet. We got a cheap toilet seat. We built it when we were still in Toronto. It works very well (not smelly). We use sawdust to cover anything that goes into it.

Our Location

Often when doing Yoga Nidra at the beginning, the person leading you through the nidra will say: “nothing to do, nowhere to go.” I always found that to be a very relaxing thought. It is what I tell myself while I quarantine, and I am finding it very relaxing.

I am a yoga teacher, and an electrician. I write a yoga blog, and I teach yoga classes online. My other blog is called End Lockdowns. In a democracy we accept that people have different opinions, and we allow those opinions to be voiced. My opinion which is that lockdowns are not scientific, and do not create healthy communities. The medical community at one point knew that informed consent was an important value. Currently the medical community has been split and there is a vocal part of it that thinks there are no issues with coercion and force in medicine. The part of the medical community that believes in mandating medical procedures and segregation is currently promoted through social media and other big tech. We are seeing a huge shift in wealth as a result. Poverty does not make people healthier. I do not think using force and coercion in medicine is a health promoting way to function. In the future, this will fail. It is only a matter of when. "Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other." Yogacarya Sri T Krishnamacharya
