The Spirit of Newfoundland

I’m sitting on the bed in a hotel room in Gander, Newfoundland. It’s early morning, and we’re scheduled to fly home this afternoon. I’m looking forward to seeing my family, but at the same time a tad sad to be leaving this place.

Throughout our journey, we have met so many people, made so many friends, shared so many stories, experiences and paths. I must have said this before, but with all its majestic beauty, rugged coastlines, endless forests, beautiful mountains and big skies, the most special thing about this big land is its people—nowhere will you find more kind and friendly faces as in Newfoundland and Labrador!

So, when you decide to visit, just be prepared to open your heart wide, because the spirit of Newfoundland and Labrador will change you forever. I know it has for me.
