Only in Nova Scotia...

Posted on Thu, Dec 3, 2015 at 4:00 AM

When visiting Halifax earlier this year, I was on the airport express bus, five months pregnant and suffering from debilitating nausea. Third-hand smoke and some bumps in the road left me dry heaving with a plastic vomit bag at the ready. Without prompting, our driver stopped on the side of the road so I could get a breather and offered to let me rest as long as I needed. Even though we all had planes to catch, not one passenger objected, even after the driver offered me a second breather further down the highway. Thank you all for your amazing hospitality. It was a lovely way to end my trip! —New Mum in Toronto
