What makes Newfoundland & Labrador such a special place on earth for you?

Newfoundland and Labrador is one of the most unique places in the world. I have had the good fortune to travel to many places and I have yet to find any other piece of the map filled with such an amazing spirit and sense of community. It never ceases to amaze me how excited people are to hear I am a Newfoundlander, no matter where in the world I am; people are either already in love with our province or are planning their first trip. Creativity is in the air, and there is something about our history and our geographic isolation that connects every single person who was born there and I feel tremendously lucky to be part of it.
