June 2009 vacation

After a fantastic vacation to vancouver and Vabcouver Island we're thinking about Toronto and Nova Scotia for next June.

Can anyone advise about Sunwing from Toronto to Sydney and the possibility of picking up a rental car from there ?

We plan to spend a week based in Margaree Harbour and were wondering how isolated will it be. We want some peace and quite but also a few restaurants and a supermarket within 20 or so miles drive.

Also recommendations for other locations as obviously there will be quite a lot of driving involved.

Any advise greatly appreciated

rescue team- you do make a valid point . Very often on Trip Advisor I see people who are looking for advice to find places to stay but the rules are such that we cannot recommend specific properties and that makes it awkward to really help people some times.

We have a problem in NS with many unlicensed properties being rented out as tourism accommodations. There have been several occasions where the renters ran into problems , so whenever I see some one is planning to rent a house , I try to help them by suggesting a licensed property .


So, that was one reason for asking for the email . If you have another suggestion as to how I can deal with this, please let let us know as I sense you know this Advisor forum process quite well.

i am a regular poster on the barbados forum so i'm happy to help with plans to the south for anyone who's thinking of heading to my other favourite place on the planet :)

the easiest way to connect with email addresses etc. is through sending a private message to the other poster. just click on their name and it gives you the option to send them a tripadvisor email. i have done this with many folks on the barbados forum and have organized get togethers etc. that way.

hope this helps. cheers, rootsie!
