So I have wanted to go to Newfoundland for ages and I thought I would do some snooping to see what I could come up with ... with really no intension of booking anything yet. And come across Globus, who I had toured with before and well, need less to say I am now going to Newfoundland!!
Going to spend a couple days in Halifax to check out some of things missed the first time around. It will be a quick trip of 2 days there but thats ok, gives me a chance to go back!! :)
I haven't planned all of Halifax yet but will put up a bit of itinerary when I have my thoughts together.
Working/Rough Schedule of Halifax
I am looking forward to exploring Halifax, but with only 2 days I am having a hard time trying to decide who what when why and where to beginning!! But either way, I can't wait!
- Halifax Public Gardens ... I think I may just explore the gardens the first evening I am there. It is close to where I am staying and a nice walk will work out the knots from traveling.
- Old Burying Grounds ... Ok, so I am weird, I like cemeteries!!
- Halifax Citadel National Park
- Whale Watching Tour
- City Tour
- Destination Halifax

Those are just a couple of ideas at the moment. Still doing some research to see what all I can pack into 2 days. Wish Me Luck!!
Newfoundland & Labrador
All Things Come to an End!!
I had a fantastic time traveling through out Newfoundland this past summer. Travel many miles and saw many different and interesting places. The trip was one of a lifetime making all the for the bus mates I had. Amazing fun people to hang out with.
My adventure started with 2 days in Halifax, walking and exploring the city and little bit of the countryside.
Spent a couple of days in Halifax enjoying the weather, scenery and food!! Lots of fun!! Check out the gallery of almost all of my images from Halifax.
Picture Perfect Tours with Geordie Motts
Wonderful photo tour with Geordie along the North Shore. Very knowledgeable Tour Guide. He got me thinking again about finding the interest in a scene instead of the big picture. Sometimes you do need to be reminded!!!
Spent the night at a B&B in Deerlake. It was just perfect ... a quiet restful day .. just what was needed.
