Travel will always be a big part of who I am. I’m not exactly sure where this drive came from but it is deeply rooted within me. My daydreams take me to far away lands and I would spend every penny I had on the adventure of a lifetime (and I almost have many times).
This latest exploration takes us to the northern tip of Newfoundland, where the locals live among moose, whales and polar bears, certain parts of the year.
Even in the summer they get huge icebergs floating down from Greenland (the journey takes two years!!) where they get stuck and melt down to become part of the sea.
It’s a mysterious place with the most welcoming people.
On our arrival in St. Anthony’s one evening, we were stopped by a local couple who gave us a pin with the town crest on it and to welcome us to their home.
The moose are lined up on the sides of the road at dusk and the minke and humpback whales are feeding along the coast.
It’s not a place many people visit and taking a whale tour to meet the humpbacks up close and personal is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. The miles they travel every year is so impressive it makes our trip look inconsequential.
For now, I think I should let the pictures tell the story.
The adventure never ends,
