Quaint coastal Maine and Nova Scotia towns/sites suggestions

Traveling with my family up the coast of Maine and ferrying to Nova Scotia this June. Any suggestions of towns or sites we should see? Kids are 12 & 9. May go up to Prince Edward Island and drive back as well. Our definite stops are Portland (ferry), Rockland (windjammer port), Bar Harbor (Acadia), Yarmouth (ferry) and Halifax. York and Kennybunkport in Maine look charming. Any others in the south? And in Nova Scotia? Saint John, New Brunswick?

USA and Canada Road trip in 2 months

Hi all,

My boyfriend and I are planning a 2 month road trip across the USA and to parts of Canada in July 2015. We are both in our late twenties.

We have a budget of £13,000 (or roughly $20,500). Our plan is taken from a tour company but we will be renting a…

Visa confusion

Hi I am hoping that you can help as I am a bit confused to the J1 visa and its expiration date.

I had a J1 visa, the date on the ds2019 form says the visa is valid until the 27/07/2014 but the passport stamp lists an expiration date of the 27/08/2014. I know that the J1 allows for a 30 day grace period, therefore is the expiration date listed on the passport the last day that i could stay in the country on j1 status?

Many Thanks

Sorry for the dumb question but was watching the news and it was one of those things that made me…
