There are so many places in the world that are great destinations for finding space, relaxation and, if you want, excitement and adventure. When someone takes a journey either near or far and finds a space for themselves and come back with great memories of the experience, it is time very well spent – especially if you were able actively relax, enjoy your time or even feel that you’ve achieved something new and interesting . Here’s 2 of my initial entries in this category.
- Newfoundland – Virtually all of the Province of Newfound, Canada is a place of peace , tranquility and adventure. The province has a great online site. There is a city on the East Coast, Corner Brook as well as the Capital on the East Coast of the province. One of my favourite spots is just outside the City of St. John’s called Cape Spear. This beautiful Cape is a majestic piece of the land that is actually the most Eastern part of North America. The amazing experience is going there for a sunrise (I have) so you can be the actual first person in North America to see the sun on that day.
- Osheaga – On literally another note anthem, Osheaga is the annual summer Alternative Music Festival held over three days in Montreal, Canada. I include this because it’s opportunity to simply get lost and involved in a musical, cultural and social phenomenon. The catch is that you are doing it with about 100, 000 other people. Sure, you’re not standing on shore with no one around for miles – just the opposite. But there is something I it if Alternative Music is your thing – there’s actually a wide range of music in this genre. The people are nice, there is an air of freedom and fun. There’s even a kind of “Burning Man (Nevada Desert), feel to the place.
I’d be interested in hearing about your getaways and experiences.
