Candice & Cailin Do St. John’s, Newfoundland

If you’ve been following me at all these past few weeks, you’ll know that Ms. Cailin O’Neil of Travel Yourself visited me in St. John’s during May 2-4 weekend.

She couldn’t come at a better time: the sun was out, the BBQ was fired up, we had a house-load of visitors and a few kegs of beer to accommodate.

Cailin’s a filmmaker, so she brought along her camera and really captured the personality of the city, or at least how I see the city. I absolutely love what she did with the whole thing, and yes, we do have this much fun all the time. After showing my roommate, she sighed all dreamy-like and said, “I can’t believe we live here.”

Plus there’s a wicked shot of my ass. Worth watching.

Can you even imagine what NYC is going to be like?!

    I got really excited at the mention of fish tongues! And were you dipping them in Ranch Dressing? Perfect.

    It really looks to be a wonderful place. I’d love to visit. Wonderful video Cailin! I love the music. Come visit me in New Zealand so we can make one here!

    Matt! Ranch dressing? Are you crazy? That’s tartar sauce! It’s fish not vegetables silly! haha

    Wow, looks like fun! Newfoundland has always been on my “to-visit” list.

    I worry about what NYC’s “screeching” equivalent may be…

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Tartar sauce! Yummm. Also, can I come to New Zealand as well?

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Thanks, Michelle! Maaan even reading these comments make me love this place a little more, haha. I’ll Fed-Ex you some cod tongues.

    I have to admit, when trying to explain to someone how to pronounce “Newfoundland,” I usually say, “It’s New-Found-Land.” I guess that’s how it’s SUPPOSED to be, though. I don’t realize I’m stressing the “New.”

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Oh good, I’m glad! You’re welcome anytime!

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Yay, come visit! And Anne, I’m not quite sure, maybe I should bring some Screech for the occasion.

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Thanks, Sonya! I love hearing that this place has touched other people as well.

  • http://www.candicedoestheworld.com Candice

    Thanks, Emily! It’s definitely a place worth exploring if you’re ever in this neck of the woods.
