Shelburne Travel . Calm Experience life beyond the ordinary. Embrace a way of life many of us miss without consciously knowing. The roads more traveled can be more complex and distracting than we recognize. ‘Calm’ needs to be experienced in order to appreciate its impact and value. When you’re in the middle of the faster lane, it may not be obvious until you’ve moved into and experienced the slower lane. In the Shelburne Region of Nova Scotia you have the opportunity to experience ‘life beyond the ordinary’! It’s generally very calm and calming.
‘Life beyond the ordinary’ includes all types of travel styles. The motivation to find your way to our Region can include any number of reasons. Perhaps its work, other times play and perhaps more often, just because.
The potential of love drew me here and its love that keeps me here. The Calm is a personal discovery. It could be described as an invisible mist that’s uniquely ‘Shelburne’, yet it’s very difficult to put your fingers on.

Now that I’ve got the ‘spin’ part off my chest I want to help you explore the area with your new eyes. This time round it will be my eyes though I invite others, perhaps you, to share your experience and perspective. Perhaps we’ll be able to add your thoughts and pictures to future posts in this blog.
