So we made is safe and sound after over 12 hours of travelling. 3 planes later, we show up in St. John’s and IT’S SNOWING! ICK
It’s gone away now, and it was fine anyways, since I was so tired – we got to our hotel room and I slept for about 3 hours, we went for dinner and I came home and slept for 16 more!! There is a 4.5 hour time difference here, so hopefully now I’m caught up!
Have seen much yet except this…
and our view from our room
First thing D bought when we got here…
Pineapple Crush!!!!!!!!!!!!! which I think you can only get in Newfoundland!!! It’s good, but probably the sweetest drink you could ever imagine...
Trying to wake up here now (it’s 11:30am –BC time is 7:00am) so we’re both still feeling off!! Then it’s off to get some groceries to stock up the room, do some sight seeing, a BBQ at our old roomates place (who moved here last year) and then… (pray for me) a night out drinking with a bunch of Dave’s Newfie friends… A) I don’t drink much – one drink and I’m done B) There is a very good chance I will have to get “screeched in” to become an honorary Newfie…
Here is an example of what getting screeched in looks like… (please watch it’s very entertaining)
It includes; trying to speak in Newfie Slang, while wearing clothing they choose, eat a capeline (fish), drink a shot of screech (gross rum) and then kiss a dead, cold cod fish.
Please pray for me, this could be an interesting evening!!
I’m scared…. haha
