Let your computer plan your next Road Trip

Computer Coaching for Seniors Ottawa Canada

Your best friend Charlie has never been to Eastern Canada and wants you to go with him to visit several cities in Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. Since you are the one who knows how to drive, you have been given the task to create a driving route.

One easy way to do this is to use Google Maps. By clicking on the "Get Directions" link, Google lets you specify a "Start Address" and an "End Address". The website will then output a map of the driving route but will also write out the directions in text which is useful because Charlie is not very good at reading maps :).

For the weather, you can get a full report at the Environment Canada website. You select the cities you are interested in and the website will tell what the weather will be like.
