Everyone loves vacation. How about traveling in our own wonderful country? Us "Westerners" have the luxury of having the Rocky Mountains in our backyard and many beautiful things. I've met many a person who talks about going to Newfoundland, and myself have been lucky enough to have traveled there a couple summers ago I would highly recommend it. And for those of you worried about the Canadian dollar, another good reason to stay at home, everything is at par!

It's know for it's stunning scenery, unique culture, funny talking people and fog. Yes "The Rock" has layers of fog at times so thick you can't see your hand outstretched in front of you; but traveling in the spring/summer time is your best chance to avoid this. It's a province full of quirkiness, beautifully coloured houses, lots of hills to keep you in shape and delicious ice cold beer and fabulous food.

Seafood lovers will be in heaven, shoppers will love the individual quirky stores full of arts and crafts, homemade chocolate shops and socializers will adore the pubs on pedestrian George Street, well known for endless supply of pubs. Get Screetched in, kiss a cod, or a puffin's butt, become one of the locals as your tongue wraps itself around their lyrical songs uselessly, laughing all the while.

Between wildlife, stunning sea scapes, unique architecture, adorable culture and some of the friendliest people on the planet, Newfoundland has a little bit of something for everything. It's like traveling to a foreign country in our back yard, and a great way to see it is with Globus Family of Brands. They have a wonderful itinerary from Cornerbrook to St. John's that encompasses the best this island has to offer, including Gros Moren National Park, St. Anthony (good luck understanding anyone from there), Gander, Cape Bonavista, Viking settlements and more. Icebergs, whales, puffins, Cape Spear, WWI history are just icing on the cake of this fabulous vacation. And save $300 per couple by traveling with Globus this summer, a hassle free and easy way to see Newfoundland and Labrador this summer.
