Travel Tuesday #2: St. John's, Newfoundland and Surrounding Area

May 7, 2013
 Last week I linked up with Helene from Helene In Between and shared some pictures of a road trip my friend Leann and I went on in Newfoundland.  I was in Newfoundland for 2 weeks, and most of my time was spent in St. John's and the surrounding area.  As promised, I'll be sharing those pictures with you in this post. :)

St.John's, Newfoundland

Leann took me to a restaurant that served traditional food from Newfoundland, including the toutons pictured.  They are a sort of pancake made from fried dough that can be topped with any sort of sweet topping such as maple syrup, honey, or molasses.

 More sights around St. Johns

Row housing--One of the most famous sites in the city

Enjoying some margaritas in downtown St. John's

One day we took a little hike up Signal Hill.

We also visited Bay of the Bulls to do some whale watching.  We saw some puffins, too!

Here are some more pictures at Petty Harbor and Cape Spear.

This was just a spectacular trip for me!  The natural beauty of it is really astounding.  I really loved seeing everything and hanging out with Leann and would go back in a heartbeat!  This is probably the most underrated place I've ever been to--many people just don't realize what it has to offer.
