when flying over newfoundland's coast on the way into the airport i felt the most amazing feeling. i exhaled once quite deeply and it was as though my shoulders fell to the position they should always be in, my hands unclenched and my muscles relaxed. i felt a connection with the place immediately. in some ways its quite like ireland and scotland maybe thats why i felt that connection. but its also strikingly different. the only comment i'll make on the crazy accents is this- 'could you say that again?'
i was looking forward to my week.
