I have to say I wasn't sure what to expect when I decided to visit a good friend in Newfoundland. When arriving at St. John's it was pointed out to me that the airport only has two gates! It was dark when I arrived so I couldn't see much of anything. Driving in Newfoundland felt like I was driving in the middle of nowhere!
During the daylight the next day - wow what a pleasant surprise. The rolling hills, the trees, the ocean, the lakes and ponds, it was all so beautiful.
I conquered Signal Hill and Cape Spear on probably the COLDEST and WINDIEST day ever! But I didn't care it was so amazing. I enjoyed going to see landmark of Mile One - the place where it all starts. I visited the most easterly tip of Canada - a great place to go if you are a history buff.
The trails were so abundant that I just couldn't get enough! For you hikers and hardcore mountain bikers Newfoundland would give B.C a go for it's money.
The downtown core of St. John's is awesome, the houses built on the sides of rock faces, the boats in the harbour. It was such a delight to visit and I would go back there in a second.
Don't pass by Mexicala Rosa's - Great food and drinks!
The Hungry Fisherman - if you love seafood then don't pass this by!!! Get the horn of plenty (the name of the dish) you won't be able to finish it there is so much seafood!!!! I was in heaven.
If you want a quick bite to eat try Mustang Sally's - great pita's and stir fry!
For the rest I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
