On a United Airlines flight from Newark to Atlanta, I read the airline's current in-flight magazine, Hemispheres. It's quite big and full of articles but about 2/3 of the way through, there was an article called Treasure Islands in which "...we offer a dozen of the world's best island destinations -- from tropical to temperate, and classic to unexpected."
The twelve include:
The Exumas, Bahamas
Turks & Caicos
Cape Breton, Canada
Did you see that? Did you see? Number 11 in that article is our treasure, Cape Breton. The article states, "This emerald island in Canada's Maritimes is ideal for slightly less sun-loving travellers looking for peace and quiet." It goes on to say that the Cabot Trail is considered one of the best road trips in Canada.
Should I have stood up in the cabin and drawn everyone's attention to the article and that particular island?
"Come to Nova Scotia, people. The whole province is practically an island!"
Maybe I could have mentioned the Moose Sex Project...
