Hi Tom and Andria,
With luck I will be in Halifax about 10 days before you and then head north to Newfoundland to see the Viking settlement before crossing Labrador and then onto Yukon. After that the rest of the world
My first thought was to stay at one of the Halifax University Halls of residence, cheapish
, private, clean and modern, but I wonder about the ability of the ferry company to contact me, although I could always keep phoning them I supose.

I figure that since I shall be roughing it for the next 6 months, at least I can start my trip in style.
I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA if this is good, bad or ugly. Hopefully we'll all get some more good ideas from the replies.
I seem to remember there is a Hubber in Halifax.
