Don't miss to drive to Bonavista and to stop several times on this trip. You will see breathtaking scenery.

On our way to Cape Bonavista

The light house in Cape Bonavista

We had a great time and an unforgettable experience. Many memories are coming back by writing this English variant of our German travel guide.
The people we met were completely different to the nasty stories which we heard about them several times in Ontario. Even a "journalist" writing for one of the top Canadian newspapers was full of prejudice.
I must admit that occasionally I was not able to understand the dialect. Elizabeth tried to be the translator. I learned that for a long time only a few roads existed on this island and people lived more or less isolated in their villages. Each of them obviously developed its own slang. Even having roads everywhere in Germany you can find this also there.
We had an invitation for dinner in St. John's which we did not want to miss. So we headed south towards the "Avalon Region".

Heavy rain in Clarenville

On our way heavy rain started in Clarenville. We purchased some essentials and proceeded southward. The rain did the same and followed us until we arrived in St. John's.
We had not booked any accommodation and we learned that there were no vacancies in places which fitted to our budget because of an event. Leaving the car was another problem. We would have been soaked within a few seconds.
so we explored the surroundings and found a moderately priced and nicely equipped apartment in Holyrood. It was an efficiency unit and we had to prepare our own breakfast and meals if we wanted to do so.
We stayed there for several days and explored the Avalon Peninsula in day trips.
As expected we had sun shine the next day!

Signal Hill in St John's

St. John's seen from Signal Hill

We were never looking for high life, discos and other things which attract the younger crowd. So we did not see or experience anything like that during our tour.
St. John's is a little bit different, we saw places which entertained visitors with jazz or attracted some artists. However our priority of our visit was the country and its people. For that reason you have to ask in a tourist office when you want to add this experience to your vacation in St. John's.
We did lots of sightseeing, enjoyed the dinner paid by the government and learned many things which we should do and see. This never happed to us in Germany or in Ontario. To be small means you have to act better and more efficient - that what I learned here.
The "Johnson Geo Centre" was one of the many attractions which we visited following the very helpful dinner. Please do not miss it!

The complete exhibition is underground. You can spend hours there. Knowledgeable guides could answer all of our questions.
Our German web site is not intended to replace an actual visit. You have to experience this amazing place by yourself .I am sure you will not regret it.

St. John's

We loved St.John's the capital of the province Newfoundland-Labrador. When we arrived we saw everywhere preparations going on for the so called "St. John's Days" as well as for the "Franco-Fest de St. John's". It is one of the oldest settlement in North America.
Besides the well known attraction there is so much to discover. The colorful painted houses are only one of the eye catching motifs. Visit the harbor, do some shopping, explore some of the restaurants or little bars. But first of all collect actual information in a tourist office.

Cape Spear - the little bit of fog did not last very long and it became also warm again.

For our daily trips we followed most the time the signed out tour routes.
Cape St. Mary with its Bird Sanctuary was one of our first destinations.
Please browse the net or visit our germ web site for more information.
