Newfoundland is gorgeous. It's a homogenous island on the East coast of Canada, unique in nearly everything; accent, culture, food, ways of life (traditional fisherman are still about).. Um, home to the most Easterly point in North America (Cape Spear). 2 home breeds of dog (Newfoundland dog and Labrador Retreiver). Point at which Sir Marconi received the first ever trans-Atlantic wireless message (Signal Hill). One of the most decorated yet tragic losses in World War One was at Beaumont Hamel (Battle of the Somme) in which about 85% of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment went down, among others. They were decorated for their bravery and now have their own Memorial site in both France and here.
I could go on all day.
The weather sometimes disagrees and in summer when Mainland Canada is suffering from the heat, Mainlanders come HERE to cool down! lol Newfoundlanders are among the friendliest people in the world, most hospitable in disagreeing situations (planes landed in Gander, NL on 9/11). We send out some of the funniest comedians in Canada (Shaun Majumder, Alan Hawco, what's his face ... Ron James, Mark Critch) we have George Street (famous for having the most bars and pubs per square capita than any other place in North America) home of the George Street Festival. And I'll stop here: St. John's is the oldest business port in North America (used as a fishing port for British, Spanish, and French fleets in the 16th Century) also contains the oldest business street in North America, Water Street.
Wanna know what it's like here? Plan your next vacation :D
