True hospitality

Having had a wonderful four years cycling the globe, we eventually returned to Canada via the U.S. to Newfoundland.

Having had a wonderful four years cycling the globe, we eventually returned to Canada via the U.S. to Newfoundland.

From getting on the ferry for St. John’s, we met a truck driver who started the ball rolling. We had a fantastic two weeks, meeting fantastic, friendly folk.

They were very welcoming and we experienced such generosity from them — we even had a visit with the mayors.

I can say with honesty, your province was No. 1 in every way. I loved the sense of humour and the scenery was magnificent.

Thank you to you all — it will remain in my thoughts for ever.
