I sat at the kitchen table, staring at a small paper bag, filled with dried purple seaweed. This time I would try it. The briny smell of the ocean floor wafted from the bag. You could smell it from six feet away, easy. But it was time. No more excuses. At the age of 39, it was high time that I tried dulse for the first time.
When I heard that Nomadic Matt was organizing a travel conference I was curious. When I saw the line-up of speakers Matt had put together, I knew I had to go. But I didn’t want that to be my “big fall trip” so where would I head after? Oddly enough, Greece made sense.
If you only have limited time in Newfoundland but still want to experience as much as you can, then head to Twillingate. The communities spread out over the New World Islands are like Newfoundland condensed. They have breathtaking coastal landscapes, icebergs, whales, fishing, theatre, hiking, good food, and even a new craft brewery. Really, what more could you want?
Ah, New York. They say if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. I just love the energy and the possibility of New York. It’s a city that makes you think that anything is possible. But it can be overwhelming. Especially when you’re trying to plan your very first trip there.
