Insert Newfie joke here.

Canadian journalist wandered around Vancouver, BC asking visiting American tourists to sign a petition on behalf of the Canadian Moose who ate parking meters in Vancouver and would be helicoptered to Newfoundland but would always wander back within a few days and resume eating parking meters.

Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland are a world unto themselves.

Good luck with your tour of Europe.

If the massage booth is still open (the proprietor is retiring), I highly recommend it. There's not a lot of quiet space in YHZ since it's just one big open hallway. maybe at the far north end (face the windows and turn left).

I think it's a flat rate to downtown from the airport. Something like $40 each way. I've always just rented a car - it's a cheap market and there's an Irving station on-site so refilling is laughably easy. You could probably hop the Delta Hotel shuttle and then take the indoor walkway from the hotel to the casino downtown, too. Might have to pay cabfare to get back from downtown to the airport in that scenario...

I like how you won't find a way to go 20 miles today, so the obvious solution is just drive from Boston later:-)

Well I would also do PEI and New Brunswick with the two Nova Scotia casinos.

Well I slept on the floor of the airport for 90 minutes or so, I felt like I was 70 years old when I got off the floor. Iím too old to sleep on floors lol. I went and got a booster juice to try and put something healthy in my body and now I have to kill another 3.5 hours until takeoff. I love layovers! 🤣

I did lol! I was watching it on my phone just before I fell asleep. What an ending to the game. Resting 5 starters, fall down 7-1, tie it up just to go down again in the bottom half and then Brandon Phillips who has been the minors all year hits the game winning 2-run homer lol. Canít write it better than that.

Iím in London, dead tired. I got to my hostel without any problem, now I must sleep for a bit. Plan for today is probably sleep and then casino hopping since I wonít have much energy today.

Newfoundland time is a :30 offset. Insert Newfie joke here.

Were you the only person having a layover? Why didn't you ask the airline to schedule a young German girl on the same flight?
