    My Long-ish Weekend in Newfoundland

    First of all, I don’t recommend you hop on over to Newfoundland for a weekend-however long a weekend it may be. Too bad I am one of those ‘Do what I say,not what I do’ people.

I hope. I have a little prejudice against paying for checked luggage-especially when we are going for only five days. We are each taking a duffel bag type thingy plus a backpack. We decided against filling  those five days to the brim-leaving time for unexpected adventure is always fun, but we did book an iceberg boat tour out of St.John’s,and  plan on using our free National…
