The first part of Billy's epic ten-week journey sees him arriving in Nova Scotia then heading north to Newfoundland .
Billy begins his journey at sea aboard the historic Bluenose II schooner, the symbol of which appears on all Nova Scotian number plates, before arriving at Halifax. where you could visit the Titanic museum.
The next stop is Lunenburg which was once North America's fishing capital, but years of over-fishing means the cod supply has almost gone and the town now relies on tourism to survive. This is situated on The Lighthouse Route stretching from Halifax along the south coast to Yarmouth, this is a land of pretty bays, long beaches and, of course, lots of lighthouses the most famous of which is Peggy's Cove
Then Billy visits Cheticamp where the residents speak French because of the 17th century French colonists who settled there. Next on the agenda Billy dodges wandering moose as he rides a motorbike around Cape Breton's western shore on the Cabot Trail - one of the top five motorcycle rides in the world.
In Newfoundland Billy visits St Johns where he has his 'Screeching In' ceremony, and then on to Gander, a town with a population of just 10,000. Billy flies to St Anthony where he goes on the hunt for his first sighting of an iceberg.
He says: "The native Inuit, who live in Arctic Canada, believe that icebergs contain the spirits of their ancestors who come back to see them every spring. I love that. I just saw a face.

"Do you know what I would love to do? I'd love to tow it up the Clyde or up the Thames or the Tyne or the Mersey and let all those kids see it."
